    Hopefully it's just a change in recruiting strategy, holding out more for guys we want (I think in the past we tended to go with a "first to commit" approach) and no that we're struggling on the recruiting trail.

    Maybe it is a different group of kids and no more than that.

    I think there is more to it than that, Cut has a pattern with recruiting and filling up the class with commits early that has held true every season he's been here. This season is quite different...it doesn't mean something dark and sinister is happening, but something is different an I don't think "after 10 years kids have suddenly become very different in 2019" is a compelling explanation.

    Something is different . . .

    I have seen on 247sports.com that Duke is in the running for some top offensive talent, including a 4* quarterback and WR. Maybe some dominoes will fall our way.

    Duke already has verbal commit from a 4* quarterback: Luca Diamont.

    Of course, I am all for more dominoes falling our way.

    Also Missouri according to Rivals.
    That brings our commitments to eight.

    Another lineman

    Apparently a DT from Knightdale (Triangle area) just committed to Duke. His list of suitors is not that impressive, but good to land a local kid. No link yet.

    This is from 2 hours ago. His photo lists Knightdale HS so this must be the guy:

    Looks like 6-2/265 DT and 1st team all conference.

    Welcome!!

    That's a Carl Franks type offer list, sad to say.

    In case anyone wants to know the mystery kid's name, the Knightdale pickup is Aeneas Peebles.

    3 star from right down the road...I'm ok with it. Not sure that comment was necessary.

    Welcome to Duke Aeneas!

    Welcome to Duke Aeneas!
    I love local kids. Where do you see him ranked as a three star. His best offer is from Navy.

    Supposedly he had a spectacular camp and may be well under-valued.

    And he won't have a Carl Franks-level staff working with him.

    It's a little confusing...247 has not ranked him yet but the article about his commitment labels him as a 3-star and mentions something about "once he gets his ranking" which makes it sound like they'll be ranking him soon and expect him to be a 3 star?

    Especially since he's not an offensive lineman...

    Looks like a 3* WR/TE committed. No real good offers but he’s 6’6”
