    Duke Football 2013 Recruiting Thread

    Duke got on the board with their first two commitments in the class of 2013 today: http://bluedevilnation.net/2012/03/d...quay-chambers/

    QB/ATH Quay Chambers from Monroe, NC (same HS as Issac Blakeney and Jamison Crowder)
    OL Austin Davis from Mansfield, TX

    Duke was the first to offer both.

    Kenny Anunike was granted a medical hardship so he has two years of eligibility left.

    I think he only has one. If he didn't get the hardship we would not see him on the field this year.

    Edit...yay, I'm happily wrong..goduke said he was a junior last year. So that means he plays through 2013.
    Duke defensive end Kenny Anunike was the ACC’s leader with four sacks when he went down with a season-ending knee injury last year.
    The NCAA has granted Anunike a medical hardship waiver, giving him a sixth year of eligibility. In January, he was granted a fifth year due to an injury he sustained as a true freshman in 2008.
    In September, he tore his ACL and MCL. Anunike will be eligible to play through the 2013 season.

    I think I got confused with the two waivers coming so close.
    Mmmm, BBQ!

    Nope, he is eligible for the 2012 and 2013 seasons:

    Great news for Kenny! He's one of my favorite players, and he's a really nice guy, too!
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    Evrett Edwards, a 5'11" CB prospect from VA, committed today. He also had offers from West Virginia, Boston College, Wake Forest, Illinois and Ohio U.

    Cutcliffe is on a roll early...

    I think its generally hard to judge how good recruits are by scouting services, since there are just too many damn football players and they hardly play any games (in addition to the lack of AAU-type events we see with basketball), so I think it might be most worthwhile to check out our success against 'better' programs when it comes to recruiting. If this kid actually had an offer to WVU, that's a good get for us.

    Staff agrees with you. Also should be noted that Duke beat out two ACC schools in BC and WF. Have to beat them on the recruiting trail if we want to beat them on the field. Another reason why pulling in Duncan and Rayner on Signing Day was so big - beating out ACC rivals.

    I missed this article in the Chronicle, but it's a good one. It takes a look at the impact that Peyton Manning has had on recruiting, plus mentions a few names of guys who have taken visits to Duke.
    “[Growing up,] I always thought Duke was one of the worst teams in the ACC,” said Jake Kite, an uncommitted safety from Virginia in the class of 2013, who is being recruited by the Blue Devils, N.C. State, Virginia Tech and Maryland. “But now it’s amazing how they are on the upswing."
    (By the way, Jake Kite just verbaled to Duke.)

    Jake Kite is a 6'1" safety out of Roanoke. NC State had offered, and supposedly had him as their #1 safety recruit.

    His highlight video is fun to watch. Kid is fast to the ball and hits hard.

    Jake's highlights - man, he is a hitter.

    He hits hard and he finishes his tackles! Ball carriers go down when he hits them.

    Coach Cut should show this kid hitting ball carriers to our current defense. He also seems to know where the ball is in the air BEFORE it gets to the receiver.

    p.s. Has anyone checked his family tree to see if he is distantly related to Mike Curtis?

    Mike was playing when I first became a Duke fan. One of my all time favorite players!

    He was a great fullback at Duke and an even better linebacker with the Baltimore Colts.

    Get that kid on the field now! We've had some strong secondary players, but it seems like forever since we've had a decent secondary!
