Bookmark and Share

Britton Grier, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound outside linebacker at West Charlotte, liked what he saw Saturday during Duke's Blue-White intrasquad game and has committed to the Blue Devils.

"He believes Duke is assembling a lot of talent," said Vernon Hunter, the West Charlotte athletics director. "He is very excited about the Blue Devils program and wants to be a part of it."

Hunter said Grier has been a versatile player at West Charlotte.

"He is an outstanding student and a very good person," Hunter said. "He is a good size and quick and very fast for a man his size."
