St. Louis (Mo.) Cardinal Ritter wide receiver Quentin Davie spent his spring break on the road and came home knowing where he wanted to go to school.
"I got an offer from Duke about two weeks ago," the 6-foot-3, 192-pound Davie said. "I decided to go on an unofficial visit over spring break to see the Duke campus.
"First of all, I was looking for academics. They covered all of that with all of the programs they have. They graduate 100 percent of their athletes. It was all the right package for me. I committed to them."
The Blue Devil coaching staff put a good impression out for Davie.
"The coaches were really down to earth. They told me the truth. They didn't sugar coat anything. Both the offense and the defense wanted me and the coaches said I had my offer for either receiver or linebacker. I'm going on offense as a wide receiver."
Davie played quarterback mostly for Ritter last year but did see some action at receiver. He was a standout linebacker and was receiving attention from other schools for his defensive skills. He threw for 876 yards last year and had 20 combined touchdowns. He had five receptions for about 70 yards in his time as a receiver. On defense he totaled 73 tackles, six quarterback sacks and two fumble recoveries
Davie had scholarship offers from Iowa, Kansas State, Michigan State, Missouri, Northwestern, Stanford, UCLA and Vanderbilt in addition to his offer from Duke.
"I was really was considering Northwestern and Vanderbilt a lot. I went to Vanderbilt two days before I went to Duke and really enjoyed my time there. But, I just felt better about Duke and what they offered as a school."
