Three-star offensive guard/defensive tackle Tyrone Duncan says that Utah is his favorite, but he still hasn't received an offer from Washington. Duncan, from Westlake Village (Calif.), visits the Huskies in January and if they offer that may shake up Duncan's top four. For now, the Utes have a slight edge over San Diego State, Washington and Fresno State.

Westlake High School's (Calif.) Tyrone Duncan (6-2, 290, 5.0), ranked as the No. 51 offensive guard by, is visiting the Washington Huskies on Jan. 12. "They haven't offered me yet, but they are still very interested," Duncan said. "They said they still want two more defensive tackles and that it's between me and two other guys. I know they are still interested and I still hear from coach Chris Tormey (linebackers)."

He already visited San Diego State (Dec. 9) and Utah (Dec. 16).

"I really like how close San Diego is and that my mom could see me play," Duncan said. "I also really like the weather in San Diego. The campus is beautiful and all the buildings are new and modern. It's very clean. I didn't realize it was so big."

Duncan says that his visit to Utah was the complete opposite to San Diego State. "It was totally different," Duncan said. "As soon as you get off the planeā€¦it's all country. But the campus itself is much bigger and more spread out. Also it's older, but the facilities are great. They have really nice indoor facilities because it snows there a lot. Even though it was so different, I could really see myself living there. It still felt very comfortable."

He is also scheduled to visit Fresno State on Jan. 5.

"I may still visit either Arizona or Nebraska (both have offered) on Jan. 19, but I'm not sure yet," Duncan said. "Hopefully I'll be able to make my decision after my Washington visit on Jan. 12."

Duncan finished his senior season with 28 tackles and eight sacks. His team was 12-1.

He reports a 3.0 core GPA and a 760 SAT (new version math/English - not overall). He needs an 800 to qualify and is retaking it in January.
