All-ACC Duke Defensive Tackle Returning



Vince Oghobaase announced he'll return for his senior season Monday, according to

Oghobaase, a native of Houston, Texas, had submitted his name for the NFL draft advisory board to review his draft prospects for the 2009 NFL draft.

"When we arrived here, we set some goals both academically and athletically, and we have some unfinished business on the field," Oghobaase said in a statement. "We want to continue to turn things around for the program, and we have a great foundation for success."

Oghobaase, a red-shirt junior this season, recorded 51 tackles and six sacks. He has finished the requirements for his sociology degree and study for a second degree.

"I was dissatisfied with receiving honorable mention All-ACC last year," Oghobaase said. "I am highly confident with another year of development I can earn first team all-conference, All-America and defensive player of the year honors."

Head coach David Cutcliffe said that he is thrilled to have Oghobaase return.

"I think he probably shocked some people when he chose to come to Duke four years ago, and I think this decision will probably shock some people," Cutcliffe said. "Choosing a college to attend isn't a four-year decision, it's a forty-year decision, and Vince wants to make sure that his total college experience is the best it could possibly be."
