Despite a rough 4-8 season, Dave Cutcliffe and Duke was able to pull in a top-50 recruiting class in the 2017 cycle. The class of 22 signees included one four-star recruit and 22, three-star recruits.
The prized possession for the Blue Devils in the 2017 recruiting cycle was top-300 defensive end Drew Jordan out of Suwannee, Georgia. Cutcliffe’s staff was also able to land commitments from top-20 tight end Jake Marwede and top-10 center Will Taylor, another Georgia native in the recruiting cycle.
Overall, the class is a step back of last year’s that finish in the top-35 of college football but is still a strong class that should allow Duke to return to a high level of football that they played in 2013 to 2015.
The Blue Devils currently have two 2018 commitments including one from three-star Georgia native, cornerback Taiyon Palmer.
