The Duke Blue Devils had a turnaround season last Fall going 10-4 in the always tough ACC. They had signature wins over schools like North Carolina, Virginia Tech, and Miami. They wowed fans with a 52-48 loss to Texas A & M in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on New Years Eve in a game where Blue Devil QB Anthony Boone went off for 446 yards and 3 TD’s upstaging Johnny Manziel who threw for 382 yards for A&M.
The program is one the rise. And as of a few hours ago Duke wants to make Bellevue Wolverine Mustafa Branch a part of the success. They just called to make him an offer to play for them on Scholarship bringing his offer count to 6 Majors!
We began covering Branch as a top recruit last season and 4 weeks ago we added him to our Premier Prospect Database. You can see his full profile here: Mustafa Branch Bellevue High School See his Q&A with our Staff below
How did the Duke offer develop and when did the interest begin?
“Duke got involved in my recruitment a little over a month ago. I was contacted by their linebacker coach Jim Collins.”
Where do the Blue Devils see you playing position wise?
“They want me to play linebacker but I’m not sure if that is inside or outside but; I’d assume outside like everyone else.”
How does their success last season and that ACC Conference grab you? Is that something you are thinking of in regards to Duke?
“The conference I’m playing in doesn’t really matter to me. I’d like to compete regardless and Duke is a great school academically as well as athletically so that would appeal to anyone.”
Stay in touch with us as we will have much more coming in on Mustafa Branch before he makes his decision!
