Worcester (Mass.) defensive tackle James McGillicuddy took his first official visit this weekend. McGillicuddy visited Duke and took in Duke's first ACC victory of the season.
"It was a great game. Duke has shown improvement in every game this year and it was great to see them knock off Clemson for a big win," said the 6-foot-4, 289-pound defensive tackle.
McGillicuddy paid close attention to the Blue Devils' depth chart and the message from the coaches.
"Duke is awfully thin at just about every position but they are extremely thin on both lines. The coaches said they view me as a player that can come in and help immediately. Duke is not that far off from being a good team. They have lead at some point in every game they have played this year. Overall, my visit to Duke was really good."
Going into the visit, McGillicuddy listed Boston College, Notre Dame, Duke, Stanford, and Tennessee. Did the Duke visit change anything?
"I really like Duke but I still pretty much wide open. I am just taking my time and getting the information I need on all of my top schools."
Up next for the talented tackle is a December 10 to Boston College. McGillicuddy was scheduled to visit Stanford but his plans have changed.
"I wanted to visit Stanford on December 3, but we play in the Super Bowl that day. Stanford will definitely still get a visit though."
For the season, McGillicuddy has racked up 13 sacks, nine forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.
