Source: Tarboro lineman commits to Duke

A source close to the situation says that Takoby Cofield, an offensive lineman at Tarboro High, has committed to Duke.

Cofield, who is now 6-foot-5 1/2 and 290 pounds, chose the Blue Devils over offers from East Carolina and Virginia Tech, according to our last conversation with him.

He had been drawing more and more interest in recent weeks, as his game tape and combine results began to spread. He said he had been a North Carolina fan his entire life, but an offer from the Tar Heels apparently never materialized.

More on this later today.

Sigh. Another Olson article, and another jab at the Tar Heels for not recruiting someone.

Seriously, Stan - either you've got an anti-UNC agenda, or every football player in the state is dying to go to Carolina and makes a point of telling you about it and begs you to mention it.
