Manning DL Phillip Dukes is set for a pair of visits starting Friday and running thru Tuesday. But before he leaves on the trip with his mother, two of the schools he's not visiting on the trip will have coaches in to see him.
Manning coach Robbie Briggs said USC recruiter Shane Beamer and new North Carolina defensive line coach Brian Baker plan to visit with Dukes on Friday, the first day coaches can go back on the road following the end of the dead period.
Dukes is scheduled for an official visit to USC January 21st and is set to visit North Carolina January 28th though his coach is not sure he'll make that visit right now.
Briggs said Dukes continues to favor USC going into his visits. Dukes has planned a signing day announcement though his coach said the word could come a few days before that.
