With every new season come new players. Most of the time, the new kids on the block are freshmen. For the 2014-2015 season, Duke signed a plethora of true freshmen.
Here’s the lowdown on defensive tackle Edgar Cerenord.
(Above are Cerenord’s highlights from his junior season.)
The Plantation, Fla. native had several options as where to continue his football career. The three star athlete had scholarship offers from Arkansas, Cincinnati, Duke, East Carolina, Eastern Michigan, Florida International, Florida Atlantic, Indiana, Memphis, Purdue, Rutgers, South Florida, Tennessee, Tulane, Central Florida, Western Kentucky and Western Michigan.
The 6-foot-1 300 pounder decided to take his talents to Duke University. He formally made the decision relatively late, signing on January 19, 2014.
For defensive tackle, his testing results were better than average. Cerenord clocked a 5.59 40-yard dash. He ran a 4.92 20-yard shuttle. His vertical jump was recorded at 18.5 inches.
With a scout grade of 79, Cerenord is the sixth best recruit in his recruiting class for Duke, just behind Trevon Lee, Zavier Carmichael, Nicodem Pierre, Shaun Wilson and Trip McNeill.
According to Cerenord’s Twitter, he reported to Durham this week.
Bye bye South Florida
