Duke picked up its 14th commitment for the class of 2013 when Dade Christian (Fla.) WR Terrence Alls committed to the Blue Devils Thursday. Blue Devil Nation first reported that the 6-foot, 162-pound receiver chose Duke over Cincinnati, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Wake Forest and West Virginia.
"He was impressed with Duke's academic reputation and with coach Cutcliffe, his experience and the fact that he's well-respected in college football," Mike Sonneborn, Alls's high school coach, said. "He's got some extended family in Raleigh, and it's just a quick flight for his parents in South Florida."
Alls was ranked No. 14 on the Miami Herald's list of the top 25 2013 players in Miami-Dade County this spring. He also finished 8th in the 100 meter dash in the Class 1A state meet.
"Speed, athletic ability and enough talent to dictate play on offense, defense and on special teams," longtime analyst Larry Bluestein wrote. "Tremendously talented."
Duke has had success with receivers from the Sunshine state during Cutcliffe's tenure. Senior Conner Vernon, set to become the ACC's all-time leading receiver this year, came from the same Miami school (Gulliver Prep) as Donovan Varner, who graduated last year as the Blue Devils' all-time pass receptions leader.
