    "highest rated player they've ever landed on the recruiting trail"

    That ain't sayin much. Probably why I've NEVER heard of him. What an embarrassing program.

    We wish you could. The thread title reads "Duke Lands" not "carolina lands".

    Good pull for Duke and Cut. Congrats. He will most likely transfer when he meets the fanbase...just sayin...

    This is huge for Duke! Now, if they could only land Princeton's Johnny Frasier at running back, they'd really have it going! Although, my personal thoughts are he's headed to the SEC somewhere. Phenomenal running back, well over 3,000 yards last year. Kid is a beast.

    Towel Boy Bracey, a wide receiver from Benedictine High School in Richmond, Va., verbally committed to coach David Cutcliffe and the Duke Blue Devils. Bracey is the first commitment for Duke’s 2016 class — and he's a big one.

    The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Bracey, who will be rated as one of the top 25 2016 recruits in the nation when releases its first rankings Monday, chose the defending ACC Coastal Division champions over scholarship offers from more than 25 of the top programs across the country.

    Towel Boy has landed a commitment from the #52 player in the Class of 2016, 4-Star ATH Scott Bracey. He told BlueDevilLair this morning after making the decision that Duke was too good of an opportunity to pass up.

    "I feel like this is the start of something big," Bracey said. "This is the era of Duke Football. I want to be a part of it."

    Choosing the Blue Devils this morning over a number of offers from traditional college football powers, 4-Star ATH Scott Bracey became the first member of Duke's 2016 recruiting class. Bracey, out of Benedictine High School in Richmond, VA, was recruited by running backs coach Re'quan Boyette.

    According to National College Football Recruiting Analyst, Bracey is a perfect fit for Duke. "Super student. Physical. Big time upside. Has an edge to him. Explosive. Will play QB as a junior but is a wideout with tremendous size, skill and speed. One of the nation's elite 2016 wide receivers. For Duke, it's their biggest commit in the modern era."

    Bracey committed to Duke over offers from Michigan, Penn State, Ohio State, Florida State, Michigan State, Notre Dame and many more. He is rated a 97.47 by the 247Sports Composite Rankings, which makes him the #52 player in the nation, the #2 player in the state of Virginia and the #2 ATH in his class.

    This is the highest rated player Duke Football has ever landed on the recruiting trail. According to Bartow, it's a statement to the college football landscape as well. "This is as big of a recruiting coup as there is nationally for the 2016 cycle and one of the most impressive upset pulls I've seen in the last ten years."

    While not complete, the Blue Devils already have the best recruiting class in program history in 2015, ranking 22nd nationally and fifth in the ACC.
