Number 25 In the Truck

Speed and size. That's what head coach David Cutcliffe said was ontop of the wishlist when he took over the Duke program. That certainly the main ingredients of the program's newest commitment - Crescent City High standout Tyree Glover. The weakside linebacker spoke to TDD about his recent commitment on Friday.

"I am going to Duke," said Tyree Glover. "They were the first school to offer me and I'd been talking with Coach MacIntyre about making it official. The coaches told me they were excited and were looking forward to getting me on board."

Glover, 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds, plays on both sides of the ball but projects as a linebacker in college.

"I'll do whatever I can to help my team," he said. "I like playing different positions. But in college, I'll be a linebacker. I think I have pretty good speed for someone my size."

Indeed he does. While being the prototypical size of a linebacker at the college level, Glover reports a persnal best of 4.5 second in the forty yard dash. Perhaps that's why he has some Madden-like (i.e. video game) numbers - posting nearly 20 tackles and two forced fumbles...per game.

Glover chose Duke over South Florida, Middle Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Western Kentucky, Ball State, Western Michigan, and UCF.

Inside the classroom, he carries a 2.4 core GPA and scored a 20 on the ACT.
