Prior to signing day the athlete was looking at both Duke and Florida.
"I talked with my family, and we compared the two different styles of coaching," he said. "But I thought Coach Cutcliffe was a person I could really develop a good relationship with and get to know, and the same with my position coaches. I knew it was the right school for me. It felt right when I went back for the spring game; like where I needed to be."
Monday described the visits he made to Duke leading up to signing day.
"My first visit was when I was offered, and got to see the Duke vs UNC basketball game, and I had always dreamed about going. I also went for the spring game, committed in March, then went for camp over summer and got to work with the coaches--that's when I was really sold."
For now, the No. 1 punter in the country from Flowery Branch, Ga., is working on physical prep for his first season on the college field.
"I'm working out every day and kicking once a week. I just finished playing in an all-star game, so I'm recovering from practices and getting ready for May workouts.
"I need to be studying the game, and really know what I need to do to help my team. Also knowing I won't be the best player, that I'm surrounded by great athletes and keeping up with the game."
Will Monday will move into his dorm on May 16th.
