Dubose Sets a Trip
B.J. Dubose the 6-foot-4, 245-pound, three-star defensive end from Northeast High School in Oakland Park, Fla., has helped lead his team to the third round of the playoffs with over 40 tackles and around 10 sacks. Northeast High (9-3) takes on Cypress Bay tonight, Dec. 3. Scout.com's No. 32 defensive end says he now favors Miami and LSU and those two lead solidly over Texas Tech. All have offered and he claims over 40 total scholarships. Dubose has already scheduled an official visit with the Red Raiders for Dec. 10. "They're recruiting me pretty hard," he said. "I really like the coaches a lot. They seem like good people and I think the program will get back on top again. That defense is starting to look real good." But the Red Raiders will have to truly impress Dubose to pass the ‘Canes or Tigers. He says that Miami and LSU are both recruiting him the hardest and he has talked to Miami's interim head coach Jeff Stoutland already as well. "He told me to hang tight," he said. "He's gonna be coaching them in the bowl game and you never know what's gonna happen. I haven't heard any names come up to take over and I really don't know what their plan is." Whatever the Hurricanes do, Dubose will still have them as a favorite. "I like them a lot," he said. "Right now I'm just waiting to see what happens and who they bring in. I'm eager for them to get a new coach." Dubose admits he saw the firing of coach Randy Shannon coming. "I wasn't really surprised by it at all," he explained. "They weren't too impressive this year. They should have been a lot better." He plans on making a decision after taking a few visits. "I've been to LSU before (unofficially) and really liked it," he said. "I really like the people there and the environment. They have great facilities and it's a great college town. I felt very comfortable there." Dubose will need to improve his academics as he reports a 2.2 core GPA and says he still does not know his ACT score. "The results are in, but I need to pay them to release them."
