Here is what Kohl’s has to say about Duley:
Duley’s most recent camp was in May of 2022 and he scored 117.9 points at camp. He also won the punt charts at the Underclassman Challenge. He is able to hit 5.0 hang-times as a high school player. In December, he scored 102 points during the charting phase from in the pocket. Duley also attended the 2021 Kohl’s National Scholarship Camp and had some of the more impressive punts at camp. He is a strong leftie who has the ability to hit 50+ yard punts with over 4.7 seconds of hang time consistently. Punting is where Duley is special and we are excited to see how good he can become in the next year!
