"I verbally committed and I'm signing with Duke," says North Salinas (CA) running back Ronnie Drummer, a 5-foot-9, 165 pounder that ran a 4.34 40 at a combine this summer. "I committed yesterday before I left. Actually, they said didn't ever actually offer me, but before I visited they said I had an offer on the table."
Drummer felt the choice was easy for him, citing the way he felt in the program.
"There are a lot of reasons why, ranging from academics of the school to the attitude of the players."
Of course headed across the mainland normally has negative aspects, and there is one at the moment.
"My family was mainly on the East Coast, but I do have a girlfriend that I would have to leave behind. That is really the only problem with the distance."
Perhaps Drummer will just have to help her find a school on the eastern shore as well.
