In 2011, he made 18 appearances and tallied four assists. In his senior year in 2012, Duke made 23 appearances and was named All-West Coast Conference Second Team despite finishing the year without a goal or an assist.

Professional[edit]

On January 22, 2013, Duke was drafted 14th overall in the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft by Sporting Kansas City.[1] A month later, Duke signed his first professional contract with the club.[2]

Shortly after signing with Kansas City, Duke was loaned out to USL Pro affiliate club Orlando City for the 2013 season along with teammates Dom Dwyer, Jon Kempin and Yann Songo'o.[3] On March 17, 2014 he was assigned on loan to Oklahoma City Energy FC, before being recalled to the Sporting roster on June 4, 2014.[4]
