Three-star DT attracts attention

Westlake Village (Calif.) Westlake has a very quiet 5-0 record. Westlake has a fine tradition and one time the only California school that rivaled Westlake's success sending its best players to the D-I level was Long Beach (Calif.) Poly.
Now Westlake has to compete with its neighbor Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian for players as well as print and with all the ink that Oaks Christian is getting this year, there is hardly any leftover for the Westlake Warriors, hence a very quiet 5-0 record.
One of the reasons that Westlake is perfect on the season is the play of three-star defensive tackle Tyrone Duncan (6-2, 300, 4.9).
Duncan has racked up over 20 tackles and has registered four sacks in five games. His success is coming at the price of double and triple teams.
"Over the last two games been getting chop blocked whenever I'm engaged and that has been happening both games all game long," Duncan said. "My coach wanted to take me out so I wouldn't get hurt."
On the recruiting trail things are picking up for Duncan.
"Washington State is my latest offer," Duncan said. "They offered me three weeks ago."
"My other offers are from Ole Miss, Utah, New Mexico and Nebraska," Duncan said. "I was supposed to visit Nebraska in December, but they wanted me to change the visit to an earlier date."
"My coach wants me to my visits after my season is over," Duncan said. "I don't have a definite date now for Nebraska, but I will visit them."
"Nebraska is the only school that I have committed to visit," Duncan said. "I may be setting a visit to UDub.
"They came and saw me last week while they were in town to play USC. My trainer, who I work out with, went to Washington so I definitely want to check it out.
"I'm also thinking a lot about Washington State."
Duncan plays in a league that rarely honors underclassmen, but he did earn team Lineman of the Year after accounting for 75 tackles and 11 sacks.
As a sophomore playing for Burbank, Calif., high school, Duncan was selected all-league and all-CIF.
Rivals.com rates Duncan as the nation's No. 47 defensive tackle prospect for the class of 2007 and is a member of the Rivals.com California top 100 team landing as a the Golden State's No. 76 prospect at any position.
