McCarthy headed to ACC

Corbin McCarthy might not be done with official visits but the Norco, Calif., saw enough on his trip to Duke this weekend to make his commitment.
The Blue Devils definitely did a great job impressing McCarthy, a 5-foot-10, 201-pound defensive back who finished with about 50 tackles and 25 pass deflections in his senior season.
"I think the biggest thing was the coaching staff and the people," McCarthy said of his Duke visit.
"The facilities are amazing. They got a new indoor football stadium that is one of the best in the ACC and they're putting $100 million into their stadium. You can't beat the education so all that stuff pretty much drew me to commit early."
Playing in the ACC was always a draw for McCarthy, who missed Norco's final game against Redlands (Calif.) East Valley with a sprained ankle but had a strong senior season.
McCarthy said he's excited to compete against some standout receivers in college.
"I actually wanted to play in the ACC really bad," McCarthy said. "I like the challenge of going against the receivers in the ACC and I think I can dominate in that conference."
His commitment to Duke is firm but McCarthy said he's definitely open to taking other visits. Hawaii and North Carolina especially intrigue the Norco prospect but McCarthy said he could be open to other trips as well.
"I'm definitely open to other visits," McCarthy said.
"I'd like to see Hawaii, that's a definite. If North Carolina offers me a visit I'll probably take one there but right now I'm just chilling."
