With the season taking a negative turn in the last few weeks, the Blue Devils were hoping to get good news from anywhere this week. And, as has been the case over the last 18 months, the good news came from the recruiting trail where head coach Ted Roof and his staff came up with a big pickup in the form of Robert Drum, a 6'7, 265 offensive lineman from Alabama.
Offensive lineman, Rob Drum, from Spain Park High School in Hoover (Ala.), is very close to making his college decision. Scout.com's three-star lineman took an unofficial visit to Georgia Tech over the weekend, and the Yellow Jackets are high on his list.
