Scott Bracey could be Duke football's biggest commit in program history

Duke football may have just made its biggest recruiting splash in the program's 102-season history.

The Blue Devils received a commitment Friday afternoon from Class of 2016 wide receiver Scott Bracey, who is ranked No. 32 overall and No. 7 among wide receivers in the ESPN Junior 300. He is Duke's first Class of 2016 verbal commit.

Prepare yourself for some of the other schools that offered Bracey a scholarship: Clemson, Florida State, Florida, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin.

Let that sink in.

Bracey, a rising junior at the Benedictine School in Richmond, Va., was named to MaxPreps sophomore All-America team last season. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound wide receiver is the highest-rated commitment in head coach David Cutcliffe's seven-year tenure.

Cutcliffe reeled in his first four-star recruit in 2011 with punter Will Monday. Duke's incoming freshman class has four four-star recruits, including two listed in the ESPN300—quarterback Nico Pierre and wide receiver Trevon Lee. The team's 2015 recruiting class already has 18 members and two ESPN300 commits in tight end Tyler Petite and wide receiver Keyston Fuller and is currently ranked 24th in the nation by ESPN.
