    Here is a 247 article on the commitment. https://247sports.com/college/duke/A...ent-128394189/

    Rivals has him ranked at 5.7, right on the cusp of a 4 star.

    The link shows him as 6'4" and 199 pounds! Excellent size for a wide receiver! Is 4.6 fast enough (asks someone who couldn't run that fast for 20 yards...when he was young enough to run that far ) ?
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    Easily, particularly if it's actually an electronic timed 4.6 (they run something like .1 slower than hand timed). The combine 40 of Julian Edelman was listed as 4.52 and he gets open against starter NFL's CBs. Quickness. Obviously, big receivers are 'always' open in the sense of a 'box out' catch. Or so think I.

    Maybe he's a Jake Bobo analog. Cut has prioritized finding bigger wide receivers in an effort to combat what he calls "hand-to-hand-combat" between DBs and WRs.

    If he has Bobo's hands, I'm all for it.

    Great write up on next season, Jim! I'm actually optimistic we can get to 6 wins. The defense should be better, considering we were missing Ben and JGH for long stretches this season. I like our O-line and backs. And, if our playcaller is above average, I like the outlook for getting back to a bowl.

    Luca is rated at 5.8, a four star recruit by Rivals. Great, great pickup. Now let's keep him.
    Welcome to DukeGang Luca!
    I love that he stressed academics in his commitment comments.

    Diamont videos

    Nice freshman video. Apparently lost his sophomore year when he fell off a golf cart and suffered a fractured skull and concussion. He looks like a keeper. Love the 100% completion rate.

    Losing that soph season probably hurt some of his recruiting ratings too....

    BTW, has Duke had a Cali QB since Bennett?

    he sounds fully committed, but these LA kids worry me...very interesting recruit, and probably Duke's first Jewish QB in some time (Dad is a soap opera star, evidently, check him out on Wikipedia)

    I'm with you; I'll be convinced when he signs.

    Going in to his recent unofficial visit, Diamont said he wasn’t planning to make such a quick commitment but everything just fell in to place for him that way.
    We know the other schools won't be stopping their pursuit. Impressive offer list.

    I imagine Cut (given past experience with QBs in general and California kids in particular) tried to make it abundantly clear that he wants a commitment to be firm and final...Luca, when USC or UCLA calls, will you still be committed to Duke?

    Brandon Connette was from Cali, although not sure if your question is limited to starters or not.

    Huge commitment. QB had to be the #1 priority for this class, and to get one early is great. Takes some pressure off. Of course, like others, I get nervous when a recruit commits early (or earlier than he planned). They have a tendency to then sit back and maybe re-think, especially when others try to get in their ear. Hope he's as committed as he sounds. There's a great opportunity for him here, and we need a quality quarterback in this class. Welcome to Duke. Here's to seeing you in Durham in the fall of 2020.
