Standing at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds, the star of Brookwood High School (Ga.) and Snellville, Georgia star also holds offers from Auburn, Georgia Tech, LSU, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and West Virginia.
Dylan Lonergan announced his latest offer on his Twitter page, but he’s not just a star on the football field, he’s also a highly sought-after baseball prospect.
Hint, hint, Duke baseball head coach Chris Pollard.
As a pitcher, Lonergan reached 90 mph on the radar gun in his freshman season, but he also threw for 800 yards, eight touchdowns, and ran for eight more touchdowns.
There is a football legacy in Lonergan’s family as his father, Dan, was a quarterback for Penn State in the 1980s and was a member of the Nittany Lions’ 1982 National Championship team.
While Lonergan is one of the lone prospects in the Class of 2023 to already have an offer from the Blue Devils, he is not the first quarterback recruit to receive a scholarship from Cutcliffe as Duke has also offered Arch Manning, the top QB recruit in the Class of 2023.
Manning, the grandson of Archie Manning and nephew of future Hall of Famers Peyton and Eli Manning, has the college football world at the tip of his fingers with nearly all programs wanting a piece of the next up in the football royalty family.
Duke clearly has no commitments yet from a member of the Class of 2023, but it will be something to monitor going forward.
