Signing Day profile, analysis, and recruiting recap for Florida wide receiver prospect

Name: Tyler Douglas
Height: 6-foot-2
Weight: 190 pounds Position / Projected Pos: QB / WR

Ranking: Two-star quarterback, ranked #131 overall in the country

Recruiting Recap: Douglas picked Duke in July over offers from Boston College, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Iowa State, and Purdue. He also had heavy interest from NC State after camping in Raleigh.

Expert Analysis:"He's a very good athlete that has a chance to play quarterback in Durham but more likely switches to wide receiver. This kid is a very good athlete. Saw him play receiver in the Florida North-South game and he did well, showing speed and the ability to make plays. Like I said, he's just good with the ball in his hands. Will have his work cut out for him but he's smart enough to pick things up and make a good, smooth transition. Coach Cutcliffe will make good use of him in his offense." -- Jamie Newberg, Scout.com

Projected 2013 Role: Douglas will likely redshirt as he spends the first part of his college career adjusting to the role of a wide receiver.
