Stone, a 6'6, 255 pound prospect from Highland Park (Tex) High, chose Duke over an offer from Tulsa. He attended last week's prospect camp in Durham and was offered soon after.
"Honestly with a school like Duke it's the perfect combination of academics and athletics. They have done a lot to improve the football program and things are about to happen in a big way."
At just over 250 pounds, Stone says he anticipates a redshirt season which will allow him to gain weight and learn the system under assistant coach Matt Luke.
"I'll do whatever they think is best, but I think I'll be redshirting to add weight. Right now I am concentrating on getting better and adding good weight as I go."
