After narrowing his choices down to Duke and Arizona State, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Notre Dame quarterback Sean Renfree decided to head back East and has committed to the Blue Devils.
Renfree, 6-3, 205 pounds is one of the nation's top signal callers and was an early commit to Georgia Tech. When former coach Chan Gailey was fired, he reopened his recruitment and took visits to Duke and Boise State as well as an unofficial visit to ASU.
"It was a tough decision for me," Renfree said. "ASU is a great school and I really like Coach Erickson a lot. He treated me great and is building a strong program but I went with Duke in the end for a lot of reasons.
"Depth wise, they only have three quarterbacks and I like the opportunity to play early there. I loved the campus and I always wanted to get away from home to go to college. I also love the academics at Duke. I would like to play football as long as I can but it's also important to have a strong education to fall back on and Duke is tough to beat.
"Coach Cutcliffe was another huge plus. He has a great rack record for developing quarterbacks and I think he'll be able to get the most out of me. I'm excited to be going to Duke. Like I said, it wasn't easy but in the end, I just felt Duke was the best overall fit for me."
