    From the article:
    "**Graham Barton, OG, Brentwood (Tenn.) Ravenwood – The Duke pledge was among the standouts in what was termed as one of the strongest offensive line camps in recent memory. Barton impressed us in person with his lateral agility and reactive quickness along with strong technique and hands. The 6-foot-5, 280-pounder’s junior video is also impressive with the 4.62 shuttle time translating over to the field. He gets to the second level with ease, plays with desirable leverage and does a nice job finishing blocks. - Power
    The move - Re-ranked as a guard, Barton has a new rating of 90, moving into the Top247 at No. 224."

    Great news! -- however -- "Re-ranked as a guard." We need offensive tackles in the worse way. A serious position of need. Of course, the position players are ranked at/recruited at and what position they ultimately play are independent.

    BangBang DukeGang. Sound the alarm. Duke receives a commitment from an offensive tackle - 6'5"' 285 lbs - from Texas with many P5 offers. I can't link an article right now. Bob Green?

    Welcome to Duke big guy! Love the hogs.

    Welcome to Duke big guy! Love the hogs.
    Maybe this guy.

    Calib Perez from Pearland, just south of Houston.

    Per Devil's Den:
    Ranked as a three star prospect and the nation's No. 65 offensive tackle according to 247Sports.com, Perez chose the Blue Devils over commutable scholarship offers from Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Arizona State, Baylor, Colorado State, Houston, Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska and others.

    Am I the only one taken aback by the way "commutable" was dropped in there?

    I'm going to guess it's a typo and they actually mean "commitable".

    Maybe he could "commute" from his home in south Texas to colleges throughout Texas, as well as to Oklahoma, Arizona, etc. Being from Texas, however, the map on one's phone may not give an accurate impression of actual distances. We just had a family reunion at Lake Texoma (extra credit if you can guess the 2 states involved)--cousins from McAllen, Texas would have had to drive 582 miles to get there. A long in-state commute.

    Or, maybe his sentence at a sequestered Football Program that is one whistleblower away from the death penalty has been commuted to 4-5 years at a Duke football program in which almost all of the players graduate from the nearby college.

    New Bern, NC unless it's a home football game then I'm grilling on Devil's Alley
    At 6'5", 285, he's a big dude.
    Maybe it was meant to be like Sean May's scholarship..."consumable".
    Q "Why do you like Duke, you didn't even go there." A "Because my art school didn't have a basketball team."

    Or he has a really good motor -- so he's combustible.

    This is great news! I'm always excited when a big lineman commits because games are won in the trenches.

    Anybody know or have an opinion re why Duke is lagging behind this year in the number of commitments we have received vs other ACC schools? In recent years Duke has tended to lead the league in early commitments. This year we have 7 while 9 ACC teams have double digit recruits with many schools on the 15-18 range. Thoughts?
