Duke landed a big time local running back, when Desmond Scott de-committed from Rutgers and casted his lot with the Blue Devils. Scott plays for Durham Hillside, a team that also features another Duke commitment in Cory Gattis. It’s no secret that the Hillside Hornet’s will get the support of Duke fans this coming season. Scott is an all purpose back and will be a duel threat in college if he remains at his current position. He is the ninth player to commit in the class of 2009 for Coach Cutcliffe. Duke continues to show improved recruiting under the new staff.
