Duke adds commitment No. 3 

March, 21, 2012
Evrett Edwards, a cornerback from Woodbridge (Va.) High School, committed to Duke on Wednesday, partly because of the impression David Cutcliffe, coach of the Blue Devils, left on him during a recent visit.

A 45-minute meeting was key. So was the fact NFL stars such as Peyton and Eli Manning still feel close to their former college coach.

“He's serious about relationships as evidenced by Eli and Peyton coming back,” Edwards said, perhaps referring partly to Peyton Manning's return to Duke to work out with Cutcliffe as the NFL quarterback returned from neck surgery.
