John Mellencamp's Son Walks On At Duke

Not like-father, like-son.

Hud Mellencamp isn't following in his father's footsteps. Hud, son of John Cougar Mellencamp, decided music wasn't necessarily his thing, and he is taking his talents to Durham, NC instead.

According to LostLettermen, Mellencamp will walk on to the Duke Blue Devils football team as a cornerback this fall, his freshman year.

He is listed at 5' 11" and 165 lbs, but should be physically ready to play after his accomplished boxing career in high school in Indiana.
