Amidst the heartbreak, depression, and desolation, we received the tiniest bit of silver lining following Duke’s crushing 52-48 loss against Texas A&M in the 2013 Chick-fil-A Bowl:
#Duke WR Jamison Crowder kept talking about next year. I asked, and he said he plans on coming back

This isn’t an official announcement or anything, but this is as reliable of a source as you are going to get, and I can’t imagine Crowder going back on it.
Crowder was Duke’s leading receiver this year, hauling in 96 catches for 1,197 yards and 7 touchdowns leading up the bowl game. The junior gave Texas A&M plenty to remember him by as well, finishing the night with 163 yards and a touchdown on 12 catches.
With plenty of players returning in addition to Crowder, Duke fans should be very excited for next year’s team.
