Duke football coach David Cutcliffe gained his second high-profile offensive line commitment in the Class of 2010 when Laken Tomlinson of Lane Technical High School chose the Blue Devils.
Lane Tech coach Rich Rio confirmed Wednesday night in an e-mail that Tomlinson committed to Duke. Rio said Tomlinson had 16 other scholarship offers. Ohio State, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Tennessee were among the other schools that offered.
Tomlinson is 6-foot-5 and 285 pounds and is rated the 10th-best player overall in Illinois by rivals.com. He joins Tarboro's Takoby Cofield - who's rated 16th-best in North Carolina - on the offensive line in the Class of 2010 for Duke.
