The Archer standout is happy with his decision.
"Duke is a prestigious university and offers a top-notch education," said the 5-foot-11, 164-pound Palmer. "I know when I graduate, I'll always have something to fall back on if football doesn't work out. I'm 100 percent committed and excited about my future at Duke."
Duke's coaching staff played a big role in his commitment.
"I talk to all of them and they're always honest with me," Palmer said. "I have a great relationship with the entire staff. They want me to come in and make a difference early."
Palmer is excited about playing for head coach David Cutcliffe.
"He's really turned the program around," Palmer said. "He knows what he's doing and he's a great coach. He's exciting, too, and fun to be around. The program is definitely going in the right direction."
