Suder chose Duke over offers from Stanford and Washington, as well as several smaller programs in the western part of the country.
Currently projected as a defensive lineman, Suder will be evaluated when he gets to school in the fall and will then be placed at either the defensive or offensive tackle position. But does he have a preference?
"I like both," Suder told Scout.com. "On offense, I like leveling people and making holes for our running back. On defense, I like making tackles and stepping up for the team."
Despite being such a physically imposing player, Suder went unnoticed throughout the early portion of his high school career before being discovered by recruiters scouting a high profile teammate.
"Bobby Lepori was a star player here last year, so all sorts of schools came by school," said Suder. "When they saw his film they also saw me and my highlights. A lot of schools called in the spring - Washington, Washington State, Colorado, Colorado State, Stanford, Duke, UNR (Nevada-Reno), Fresno State."
In the end it was Duke that put all the pieces together to earn a commitment.
"I see a strong program building there. They have 12 freshmen starting there this year. I'm close to a lot of the coaches there. They have good academics and I feel like they think I'm a top priority."
Suder is already fully qualified for competition at the Division One level, boasting a grade point average over 3.0 in core classes.
