Class of 2015 Snellville (Ga.) Shiloh defensive back Jeremy McDuffie has had a busy spring between football and track. His exploits on the track have earned him a trip to the state finals in the 110-meter hurdles, the 300-meter hurdles and the triple jump, where he's projected as the No. 1 contender in all three events.
With his track success coming off the heels of a solid junior year, McDuffie is seeing plenty of new interest. Over the past month he picked up offers from Illinois and Marshall.
"Illinois came by like three weeks ago and offered and I've been talking to them since then," the 5-foot-11, 169-pound McDuffie said. "I just called them yesterday to keep them updated and tell them how I've been doing with everything."
McDuffie has been doing his homework since picking up the Illini offer and recently watched the school's spring game online.
"I've been doing my research," he said. "Their defense looks pretty nice and I think I would fit in pretty well."
As far as the Thundering Herd, they just offered on Tuesday and McDuffie said he's not too familiar with the program.
"They came by school today and told my coach that they wanted to offer," he said. "They think I'm a good size for a corner and they like my athleticism. They want me to come up for a visit soon."
Plenty of other schools have been by the Shiloh campus in recent weeks and McDuffie said he's expecting to see several more coaches. He also took a number of visits in the spring when his schedule allowed.
"I went up to Duke for a visit and to Georgia Tech," he said. "There's been a lot of coaches by here, too. Wisconsin and Boston College have been talking to me a lot since they came and Tennessee said they want to watch me run at state."
Once his track season is over, McDuffie said he hopes to get back out on the road.
"I want to go over to Tennessee and Boston College wants me to come to their camp, too," he said. "But I have to see how everything works out between track workouts, football workouts and when the camps are scheduled."
