Miami WR commits to Duke

Terrence Alls (6'1, 170) picked the Blue Devils over 15 other offers, and made his decision on Thursday morning.

Around lunchtime on Thursday the news broke that Miami area wide receiver Terrence Alls had made a decision to attend Duke University. The decision was not only a big boost for the stable of talented receivers in Durham, but also on the recruiting trail given Alls' offer sheet.

According to Alls he had scholarship offers from Wake Forest, Duke, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Kansas, Tulane, West Virginia, Temple, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Memphis, Florida Atlantic, and Boston College.

He visited Duke in late June, and apparently that was enough to do the trick for the Blue Devils.

"After looking back and comparing everything from the other visits, I felt like Duke was the best fit for me academically and athletically. Their offensive scheme, and what they are building was the main reason."

Alls figures to shoot up in the next rankings update from FoxSportsNEXT. Last season, in an offense that threw the ball less than 10 times per game, the two star prospect still managed to haul in 17 catches for 234 yards and three touchdowns.

"I feel like I can make plays when given the opportunity," Alls said. "I can run the deep routes and I can return punts. I can do a little bit of everything."

That self-evaluation is backed up by regional recruiting analyst Mike Bakas who wrote:

"Alls played in an offense that threw the ball less than 10 times per game last season so his production numbers don't jump way out at you but he can flat out play. He has enough size, good athleticism, and he does a good job of running routes and really making things happen after the catch. Throw in the fact that he's a good student and you can see some of the reasons why he's collected the BCS offers that he has. He's clearly one of the top wide receiver prospects in South Florida in the 2013 class."

Alls reports a 3.3 core GPA.
