And with that the Blue Devils had landed the nation's No. 55 rated quarterback prospect who is described as a very accurate passer with good arm strength.
"I think the strengths I have are my accuracy and my ability to really read a receiver and a defense. I am athletic enough to more around the pocket when I feel the rush coming, and I am not afraid to throw the ball away."
That combination of accuracy and feel for the quarterback position was what drew the Duke coaching staff to Schoreder, which is interesting because it was the coaching staff the attracted him toward a career as a Blue Devil.
"With Duke you have a coach who has made a career out of developing top rated quarterbacks. Coach Cutcliffe helped get the Mannings started and Eric Ainge is going to be playing in the NFL this year as well. When you look at the opportunity to play for a guy with his track record and a guy like Coach Roper - there was no way I could turn it down."
With the recruiting process now in the rear view mirror, Schoreder is focusing on his senior season and looking forward to getting back across the country to see more of his future home.
"My sister went to Elon, so I'm familiar with the area. I am hoping I can make an unofficial visit to Duke over the course of the season and then I'll be coming back later in the year - probably in December or January - for my official visit."
