John Mellencamp's son to walk on to Duke football team

Rock star John Mellencamp's son is going to walk on to the Duke football team this season, a source told CBS.

Hud Mellencamp, a 5-foot-11 former Golden Gloves boxing champ in Indiana, is going to play defensive back for the Blue Devils when he arrives on campus in Durham later this summer.

As a 14-year-old in 2009, Mellencamp won a 132-pound division title in the Golden Gloves while boxing for the Indy Police Athletic League.

The younger Mellencamp was home schooled and did not play high school football.
