ESPN's David M. Hale believes that Duke junior WR T.J. Rahming is a darkhorse to lead the ACC in receiving for 2017.

"Rahming is a worthy successor to that Duke lineage (of Conner Vernon and Jamison Crowder), has tallied 1,300 yards in his first two seasons, has arguably the best QB in the Coastal Division to work with, and down the stretch last season, as Daniel Jones blossomed, so, too, did Rahming," Hale writes. To his point on the late connection between Jones and Rahming, the junior wideout finished up the 2016 campaign with 28 catches for 333 yards in his last three games (against North Carolina, Pittsburgh and Miami) -- he recorded at least 100 yards receiving in each of those contests and notched at least eight catches in each of those games. Rahming logged a 70-742-1 receiving line for the campaign as a whole.

Former Ohio State senior T Evan Lisle transferred to Duke as a graduate.

Lisle, a 6-foot-7, 308-pound offensive lineman, can play right away for Duke as a graduate. Listed as the No. 2 left tackle for the Buckeyes last year, Lisle mostly played on special teams.

ESPN's Andrea Adelson writes that Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones is in "complete control of the offense."

Adelson writes that Duke could be "sneaky good" during the coming season. Part of that optimism is due to Jones, who has had a full offseason to prepare as starter (Thomas Sirk was expected to start last summer before his troublesome Achilles sidelined him for the campaign). Once thrust in the fire, the 6-foot-1, 210-pound Jones went on to throw for 2,836 yards with a 16/9 TD/INT ratio. Adelson believes that in addition to Jones' entrenchment at the top of the depth chart, expected improvements on the offensive and defensive lines could put Duke back into the bowl mixer at the end of the coming season.

Duke CB Breon Borders privately worked out for four different teams last week.

The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson additionally reported that Borders visited an NFC team on Tuesday. Borders isn't assured of being drafted, but he seems to have pre-Draft momentum on his side. A Day 3 call is definitely a possibility.

The Broncos and Panthers are "high on" Duke CB Breon Borders, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Wilson also passed along that Borders has private workouts scheduled with three teams, though we don't know which ones. Borders was named a third-team All-ACC selection in 2016. A projected undrafted free agent, CBS Sports ranks him as the class' No. 63 CB.

247Sports' John Watson wrote that Duke freshman TE Jake Marwede is "a surefire pick to spend 2017 redshirting."

Marwede transitioned from quarterback to tight end during his high school career at Loyola Academy (Illinois). While the 6-foot-5, 235-pounder offers more than enough height/weight for the position, his blocking remains understandably underdeveloped. Watson believes that will need to be Marwede's primary focus during his first year with the Blue Devils. He ranked as ESPN's No. 188 overall prospect in the 2017 cycle.

Duke received a verbal commitment from two-star 2018 WR Jake Bobo.

While Rivals is somewhat dour on Bobo's collegiate ceiling, assigning him just the two-star rating, Scout.com views the 6-foot-4, 175-pounder as a three-star prospect. The latter outlet ranks him as the No. 3 player in the state of Massachusetts, with analyst Brian Dohn noting that his "ability in the middle of the field is what stands out." Dohn is also intrigued by his potential as a red zone target. Adding playing weight is a must for Bobo, though.

Duke dismissed sophomore DL Brandon Boyce.

No reason was given. Boyce appeared in 21 games during his career with the Blue Devils, including eight games in 2016. Due to a violation of team rules, Boyce was suspended for the first three games last year.

Duke dismissed sophomore DL Marquies Price.

No reason for the dismissal was given. Price started 11 games last season to give him 14 starts over his career. He finished No. 2 on the team with six quarterback hurries last year.

Duke signed four-star 2017 LB Drew Jordan.

Jordan held with his Duke pledge from last summer on through National Signing Day. He lands on the ESPN 300 at No. 283, with the outlet noting that the 6-foot-2, 236-pounder is "a good overall football player who is active around the ball." They call him a "very effective tackler from the backside."
Feb 7 - 10:56 PM

Duke received a verbal commitment from three-star 2017 DE Victor Dimukeje.

"I had the relationship with them for a long time," Dimukeje explained. "It wasn't just the football. It was the academics. It's a prestigious university, and I know that football doesn't last forever. That degree means a lot." The 6-foot-1, 254-pound native of Baltimore sided with the Blue Devils over Michigan State, Virginia Tech and Pitt. Scout.com ranks him as the No. 15 defensive end prospect in the East region. While he is undersized and will need to pack on bulk once he joins HC David Cutcliffe's crew, Dimukeje already has the requisite motor.

Duke redshirt freshman QB Daniel Jones completed 34-of-50 passes for 316 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's loss to Miami.

Jones notched a pair of touchdown passes in the first half to keep the Blue Devils close, but his third wouldn't come until there was 2:41 remaining in the contest. At that point, there was no "keeping close," as it merely drew Duke to within 40-21. That score would hold as the final. This was Jones' second three-touchdown performance of the 2016 season. As Duke (4-8) won't be going bowling this year, the 6-foot-4, 210-pounder finishes out his 2016 campaign having thrown for 2,836 yards with a 16/9 TD/INT ratio. He adds 486 yards rushing and seven ground scores.

Duke redshirt freshman QB Daniel Jones completed 22-of-34 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 94 yards and two additional scores in Thursday's 28-27 upset of North Carolina.

For all the world, the game opened like a potential UNC blowout in the making. The Tar Heels held a 14-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. Matters would shift dramatically in the second quarter, when Duke outscored Larry Fedora's crew 21-7. For those disinclined to do the math, the teams were tied at 21-21 when they hit their respective locker rooms for halftime. Both of Jones' touchdown runs came in that big second quarter. He would strike again with a go-ahead two-yard touchdown toss in the third quarter. Neither team scored in the fourth quarter. Jones has now accounted for 19 total scores (12 passing, seven rushing) through 10 games.

Duke redshirt freshman QB Daniel Jones completed 18-of-31 passes for 148 yards while rushing for 99 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 24-21 loss to Virginia Tech.

No passing touchdowns for Jones, but he did come through with a pair of rushing scores in the second half. His two-yard scoring run with 7:10 remaining in the fourth quarter drew Duke to within 24-21, but despite that hefty chunk of time left on the clock after the 6-foot-5, 210-pounder hit the end zone, neither team would score again. Saturday's showing snapped a streak of five consecutive games with a touchdown pass, but it also snapped a streak of six consecutive games without a rushing touchdown. The world works in mysterious ways.

Duke redshirt senior RB Jela Duncan suffered a torn achilles and will miss the remainder of the season.

Duncan rushed for 450 yards and six touchdowns in seven games this season. Duke continues to suffer injury after injury. As the Associated Press notes, this is Duke's third captain to be lost for the season.
