Duke adds 2017 RB


Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Georgia, has produced dozens of Division I players over the years, including many ACC players. Duke has been among the programs to tap into the football powerhouse since David Cutcliffe was hired as head coach in 2008, and just over a week after signing Sandy Creek defensive back Javon Jackson, the Blue Devils scored a commitment Jackson’s former teammate Marvin Hubbard:

A 5-9, 180-pound prospect, Hubbard projects as a running back at the college level but can contribute in a variety of ways. According to MaxPreps, he rushed for 985 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior in 2015, while also pitching in as a return man.

Hubbard is rated a 3-star recruit by Rivals.com. He is the second player to pledge to Duke’s 2017 class, joining Pensacola, Florida, wide receiver Damond Johnson.
