The Duke football program is looking to add even more firepower in its Class of 2021 recruiting class after the team made the final lists for two recruits.

There was more good news for David Cutcliffe and his Duke football staff on Tuesday morning as the program made the final list of schools for two Class of 2021 recruits.

Josh Moore, a safety from Marist School in Atlanta, Georgia, tweeted out his Top-6 that included Northwestern, Duke, Norte Dame, Stanford, Boston College, and Syracuse.

The 6-foot-2 defensive back is ranked as the No. 638 recruit in the junior class, the No. 44 safety, and the No. 50 player in the state of Georgia, according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings.

The recruiting-based website also lists Moore’s Crystal Ball Prediction for him to land at Stanford.

Duke also made the Top-5 for Class of 2021 defense end Ashton Gillotte.

Gillotte, a native of Boca Raton, Florida, stands at 6-foot-4 and comes in weighing 220 pounds.

A multi-sport standout at Boca Raton High School, the defensive end has trimmed his list of schools down to Duke, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Vanderbilt, and Central Florida.

Ashton Gillotte said in a tweet on Tuesday that he will make his decision over the weekend and announce his decision at some point next week.


Josh Moore did not give a timetable for when he could come to a decision.
