As you’d expect, Duffy has a ton of offers from prominent programs, including USC, Auburn, LSU and Arizona State. He was considered a strong Arizona State lean, according to 247Sports, but does not have the Sun Devils in his top four.
Duffy is originally from Rancho Verde, Calif., and recently transferred to IMG Academy because of uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus in California. His father, Pete, was his high school coach at Rancho Verde and had this to say to the Los Angeles Times (via Yahoo Sports) when his son decided to go to IMG.
“With the uncertainty, there doesn’t seem to be a great chance to play this year and gyms aren’t open to train,” Pete said. “He’s made good strides with what I’ve been able to do with him, but if the goal is to be the best player you can be and have the ability to have the best training available, why not do it?”
