Never offered by Michigan, but, was in a couple recent write-ups as a "sleeper" WR out of Michigan. IU, and now Iowa, have picked up a few 3-star Michigan kids so far this year.
MIch. WR Duzey to Iowa
But not Michigan material.
Best of luck to him.
Yeah, I remember taking a look at this kid. He had offers from Purdue and MSU so he's no major slouch, but he's probably just below where UM and RR wants their kids. If he keeps his speed as he adds bulk, he could be a pretty solid TE for the Hawkeyes though.
Sounds like he could wind up being a real doozie.
It's good that he's going to Iowa, because from what I understand, MSU wasn't far behind.
Duzey talked about how proud he was of the Spartan offer and how he grew up watching MSU football and his entire family was/is Spartan fans. Interesting choice to become a Hawkeye and leave your sweetheart empty handed. Maybe a bit of karma given the Fred Smith debacle among many.
There seem to be more Big Ten level players in MI this year than in years past. Just an observation.
Having lived in Iowa for 20 years (actually only 3, but it felt much longer), here are some suggestions for some fun things to do. He can...um, well there is the...eh. I hope he likes corn.
There is only one thing they do for fun in Iowa City....Drink.
Is he going to be a Tight End later if he's 215 now?
I've never seen him before.. but I'd bet we finish our receivers with AJ Jordan and then maybe take a guy like Ben McCord at Tight End. We'll see.
I played with him in high school, he's a good guy, and a damn good football player too. Even on a crap team like Troy Athens he still managed to put up numbers despite the fact that everyone knew he was gonna get the ball. He's also deceptively fast, sort of the long strider type. I don't ever remember him getting caught from behind.
Best of luck to the Duze at the next level.
Iowa is on a hot streak is that 5 in the past week?
