Fort Myers (Fla.) two-star athlete T.J. Douglas made his decision on Friday evening.
"I committed to Duke," Douglas said.
The 6-foot, 178-pound athlete talked about why he opted for the Blue Devils.
"It is because of the school and the opportunity to play early," Douglas said. "Everything felt right."
Douglas says he chose Duke over Boston College and Purdue.
"It just came down to the opportunities," Douglas said. "I just felt like that is where I should go."
The South Florida prospect had an opportunity to visit his future home earlier this year and was impressed by what he saw while on campus.
"I visited there earlier this summer," Douglas said. "The coaching staff I really bonded with them. I like the facilities. I really like Coach (David) Cutcliffe."
Douglas, who is used at quarterback by his high school team, will be changing positions at the next level.
"I will play wide receiver," Douglas said. "That is what I want to do."
With his decision now out of the way, Douglas plans to just focus on his senior season and academics.
"I am done with recruiting," Douglas said. "I am just happy to be done with it and to be going to Duke."
The Blue Devils beat out offers from Arkansas State, Boston College, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Iowa State, Massachusetts, and Purdue for Douglas' services.
