Detric Dukes is a linebacker from Atlanta, Georgia’s Tucker High School. He committed to the Cards back on April 15, soon after being in town for the spring game. We caught up with him to ask some questions about his high school team, his latest college offer, and more…
The Cards picked up commitment number 14 for the class of 2014 when Union County High School (Union, SC) wide receiver/cornerback T.J. Foster committed to Charlie Strong and staff. He is listed at 6’3 and 180 lbs. A 6’3 wide receiver or cornerback is a weapon for sure.
