Commitment Spotlight: Britton Grier

Britton Grier, wide receiver from Charlotte-West, N.C., talked about his recent commitment to the Blue Devils.

"I committed to Duke," said Britton Grier. "I called the coaches. I talked to coach Cutcliffe. He was surprised. He didn't think I would commit so early.

"I mostly committed to them because of the academics. I like the campus lifestyle. I really liked how it was while I was there.

"I really like the coaching staff at Duke. I feel like they know what they are talking about. They know how to fix the problems we have as players. I think coach Cutcliffe is a great coach."

Grier recorded 15 sacks and 68 tackles during the 2009 season. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder was recruited to play outside linebacker for the Blue Devils.

"My speed and my quickness are my two biggest strengths," he said. "I would like to improve my footwork. I also need to work on reading the offense."

Grier was also receiving interest from North Carolina and N.C. State. He was recruited by Duke assistant coach Jim Collins.
