Ohio 2014 Prospect Gathering Looks

Ohio 2014 Prospect Gathering Looks

While several of the top 2014 prospects in Ohio have been identified at this point, there are still new players hitting the radar daily. Kettering Alter's Jeff Duncan is starting to attract recruiting attention.

Although he was not a starter last season as a sophomore at Kettering Alter, offensive tackle Jeff Duncan is starting to attract recruiting attention.

Duncan, 6-foot-6, 265-pounds, traveled to Miami last weekend to check out the Hurricane summer camp, and the 2014 prospect performed quite well according to reports.

"It was a very large camp, with players there from all over the country," Duncan stated. "It was great being there, and they really worked us out very hard. I thought I did really well in pass protection at offensive tackle, and I also worked out a little bit at defensive tackle. I felt like I got a lot out of it, and I got to speak with (offensive line coach) Art Kehoe, which was great."

"It was exciting being coached by Coach Kehoe, and he really sparked up the intensity in the offensive line drills," he added. "After camp was over Coach Kehoe congratulated me on having a good camp, and he said he hoped to see me back in Miami for a game this season."

The Miami camp was the first of several Duncan is planning on attending, as he is looking to see how he stacks up against the best competition.

"Next weekend I'm going to Pittsburgh for camp," he explained. "After that, I'm going to West Virginia the following weekend. Later on, I will be going to Penn State, North Carolina State and Cincinnati, and probably a few more."

It's rare for sophomores to start in the Alter program, and Duncan saw his playing time increase as the season went on.

"Sophomores don't get a lot of playing time at Alter, but I played a lot and lettered, so I was happy with that," he admitted. "I played more and more as the season progressed, and I got better as the season went on. My strength is that I am very efficient, and I know how to play the game. I have only had one penalty called on me since I started playing football. I'm working hard on adding upper body strength. Competing at the Miami camp showed me that I need to be stronger to compete at that level of competition."

Scout.com will continue to track the progress of Duncan as he travels to various college camps.
