Measuring out at 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds with a sub 4.4 forty time on the books, Shuler will have his pick of schools whenever he decides to narrow down his list. At last count he has more than 15 written offers from a number of schools including BCS blue bloods such as Michigan, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma. However, at this point he has no timetable for narrowing his list to a manageable few.
With so many "powerhouse" programs calling, what approach is he hearing from Duke?
"Coach Cutcliffe talked with me about their plans and how they will win at Duke given some time. They are talking with me about the academic advantages, their wide open offense, and the general idea that they are getting better. They did a lot better last year."
As a junior Shuler played quarterback for his high school team and finished with an impressive statline that included 1,300 yards passing and 1,200 yards rushing for 25 total touchdowns. He says he can bench 275-pounds, squat 415 and has a 41-inch vertical jump.
Rated as the country's No. 36 wide receiver prospect and a four star player by Scout.com, Shuler says his greatest strength on the field is his "heart" and desire to finish plays, but he also acknowledges that he'll need to work on controlling his emotions as well.
"I'm fast and I go hard all the time. I feel that I would be a good player if I ran a 4.6 forty instead of a 4.38. My major weakness is that I sometimes try to do too much out there."
