The 6-foot-2, 205-pound signal-caller holds scholarship offers from Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, NC State, Tennessee, Wake Forest and West Virginia among others. Arizona is also showing a significant amount of interest.
Out of all the schools, Surratt recently told Scout.com’s Michael Clark that Duke, North Carolina and Wake Forest were recruiting him the hardest, and eventually the list was cut down to a final four of Duke, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, and North Carolina.
Duke is only program of that quartet to not have taken a quarterback commitment in the class of 2016, fueling speculation that the Blue Devils may be about to add yet another four star player to their class. Should that come to pass, you can credit the relationship Surratt has built with the coaching staff.
”They’re just really good people and I feel very comfortable around them. Coach Cutcliffe’s track record with quarterbacks is also really impressive. They told me that I’m their No. 1 priority in 2016 and that means a lot to me.”
Last season as a junior, Surratt led East Lincoln to a 16-0 record and state championship. He completed 281-of-414 passes (68 percent) for 4,338 yards and 51 touchdowns and carried the ball 156 times for 1,239 yards and 22 more scores.
He is ranked as a four star prospect according to Scout.com and the nation's 19th best quarterback.
