Attending Person County High, which is close to Durham, Weaver has been able to follow the progress of head coach Ted Roof and his staff as they work to rebuild the Blue Devil program. It was their commitment to that task that peaked his interest.
"Honestly I wasn't all that interested in Duke until I took the time to visit the campus and attend camp this summer. I had a chance to meet the coaching staff and see how hard they work. Coach Yano (Don Yanowski), my recruiting coach, really helped me see that Duke had all the pieces I was looking for."
Weaver reportedly was receiving interest from every high major program in the Carolinas as well as Tennessee. And though he's facing another year of potential recruiting from those other schools, don't expect this 6-foot-7, 290 pounder to renege on his commitment.
"Committing was a big deal for me and it's solid. I'm not changing my mind. I'm a Blue Devil."
