COMMIT SPOTLIGHT: Brandon Boyce

Get to know defensive tackle Brandon Boyce in our on the scene player spotlight feature...


Brandon Boyce is a defensive tackle prospect from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. who is committed to play college football for the Duke Blue Devils.

Boyce committed to Duke nearly a year ago as a junior, and he's remained firm with his pledge despite lingering interest from a number of power five conference programs.

“I still hear from Syracuse, Cincinnati, and Minnesota a lot. None of them really have much of a specific approach, they just send letters and will call to let me know they are still interested and are going to continue to recruit me on their end.”

Still, it seems like a fool’s errand as Boyce says he’s solid in his commitment to Duke, and is already looking forward to his planned official visit.

“After the season I will take my visit with all the other 2015 guys either in December or January. I’m looking forward to getting to campus and attending a Duke basketball game. I already visited in May and saw everything I needed to see to be sold on them.”

So where can Duke fans look for Boyce when he steps on the field at the new Wallace Wade? Right now the three star prospect says he believes he'll start as a potential interior lineman, but that could change thanks to a skill set that'll translate.

“The coaches have told me that being quick and elusive off the ball will definitely help me make the transition to college football next year. They are projecting me to move around the line and to play on both the inside and outside. I talked about it with Coach Jones and Coach Petri.”
