Duke signal-caller commit Gunnar Holmberg enjoys Blue Devils' junior day

Wake Forest (N.C.) Heritage quarterback and Duke commit Gunnar Holmberg was in Durham last Saturday for the Blue Devils' junior day and enjoyed his time on campus.

Duke had its first big junior day of 2017 last weekend.

Blue Devils' quarterback commit Gunnar Holmberg was in attendance.

"The trip was great as usual," said the 6-foot-3, 175-pound Holmberg. "It's cool to experience a junior day as a commit rather than someone still trying to decide.

"I was able to watch the quarterback meeting and spring practice. I was also able to hang out with some of the other guys we're trying to get to commit and spend time with some of the players.

"My favorite part was getting to know some of the guys I've talked to on Twitter before about Duke. It was great to just finally meet them in person."

The Heritage standout spent the a lot of time with a specific coach.

"I was with (assistant) coach (Eli) Keimach the most," Holmberg said. "He's the coach I've talked to since my freshman year, so we have a great relationship.

"We talked about some plays and watched some film. We also talked about everything outside of football such as school, family and friends."

Holmberg also spoke with head coach David Cutcliffe.

"Our relationship is great," Holmberg said. "We talked about all the progress Duke is making and will continue to make. I like how down to earth he is and just how genuine he is as a person and coach.

"He's very determined to make every kid that comes to Duke a great man and a great football player."

Last season, Holmberg threw for 2,485 yards and 21 touchdowns while completing 64 percent of his passes and rushed for 281 yards and seven more scores.
