ATH Darius Lipford (6-4 210) of Lenoir, NC is committed to Duke but according to his father Darryl, he is keeping his options open. "I just told him to take his time," said Lipford's father. "I don't want him to feel like there is any pressure on him."
According to Darryl Lipford, he believes Lipford has visited Clemson, USC, North Carolina, Virginia, and Duke recently. "I think he's been to all of those schools," he said. "But I am not positive." Lipford has expressed in the past that those are his top five schools and he would consider officials to each.
He is good friends wih USC player Quin Smith and has heard good things about the Gamecock program. Lipford is not in any hurry to make a final decision, according to Darryl Lipford, and does not have a leader.
