The Duke football program officially entered the race for a top-tier offensive lineman in the Class of 2022, but a major list of other schools await the battle from the Blue Devils.
Duke is stepping into deep recruiting waters with its latest offer to a top offensive lineman in the Class of 2022.
Givens, a Daleville, Virginia native, is ranked as the No. 137 recruit in the Class of 2022, the No. 15 offensive lineman, and No. 7 prospect in the state of Virginia, according to 247 Sports.
The Lord Botetourt High School standout also holds offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida State, Louisville, Maryland, Notre Dame, Penn State, South Carolina, Texas A&M, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia, among others.
Givens is also receiving interest from Clemson, Ohio State, Michigan, and Oregon.

The 6-foot-6, 275-pound athlete is transitioning to offensive tackle from tight end, a position he used to play earlier in his high school career, but Brian Dohn, a National Recruiting Analyst for 247 Sports, says that Givens needs to work on his technique, footwork, and strength but projects as a college starter and eventual NFL Draft pick.
The Blue Devils do not have a commitment from a player in the Class of 2022 yet, but David Cutcliffe and the coaching staff are still refining their 2021 recruiting class while slowly dabbling into the rising juniors.
Handing out offers becomes that much more important with many of the football camps and showcases canceled because of COVID-19.
