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.
I have thought this all along, and now that the season is getting closer, it seems to be a real possibility: I won’t be surprised at all if Senorise Perry does not play this season for the Cards. That doesn’t mean he won’t be ready to. But by the time he will be 100%, it may be better to treat him like we did Dominique Brown last year. Just let him sit out and get all the way healthy without using him for just a few games.
*Charlie Strong will host his 4th annual Women’s Clinic on Saturday, June 1, at 3 pm in Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. With the cost of the clinic ($60), the women get coaching from Coach Strong and his staff, work in the weight room, dinner, and a t-shirt. Registration will begin at 2 pm in the PNC Club on the east side of the stadium. You can also register online at cardinalfootballcamps.com.
Here are some updated NBA Mock Drafts. One of them has Gorgui going as high as 12th! Another also has him going to the Bucks, which reminds me of watching the draft a few years ago with my cousin Conley. He is a UK fan, and was watching for Jodie Meeks, and he said “Please don’t get drafted to Milwaukee or Toronto. No one ever hears of players again when they go there!” That is a pretty accurate statement! Meeks did get drafted to Milwaukee that night, but of course he has now made his way to Los Angeles, so anything can happen.
This year’s NBA Draft is Thursday June 27.
Fort Lauderdale, FL (Cardinal Gibbons HS)
6’1 180 lbs
Some other offers: Ole Miss, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Boston College, Southern Miss, and more.
The success in UofL athletics just continues to happen. Here are some things to get you caught up!
*Rick Pitino took some friends fishing in the Bahamas. With the lucky streak he is on, this happened. That is an 80 pound marlin! So just like everyone else in Major League Baseball, Pitino decided it would be fun to dominate the Marlins.
Mel Kiper Jr. is a draft guru on ESPN. He has been doing this for years and apparently knows his stuff. I remember when Brian Brohm was going into the draft, Kiper kept saying that Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco were better, and I could not believe he was saying that. Well, I guess those two guys are pretty decent. He is already talking about the 2014 draft, and he does mention our guy Teddy Bridgewater. Enjoy!
ESPN.com’s Andrea Adelson had a chance to catch up with running back Dominique Brown and talk to him about how he feels heading into this season. Brown sat out all of last season with a knee injury, and from what I saw in an open spring practice this year, he looks better than ever now. He still runs with the power he had before, but now he can make cuts and juke moves like a natural running back. He could be in for a major season. Here is the complete blog post from Adelson.
