Duke Lands Tennessee Transfer

There has been plenty of speculation about Duke landing a high-profile quarterback transfer, but the first Blue Devils news of the offseason surrounds another offensive skill position. 

Duke announced on Dec. 31 that Daniel Helm has transferred from Tennessee. Helm had 6 catches for 37 yards for the Volunteers this season, which was his freshman year with the Vols. He also caught a two-point conversion pass in a loss to Georgia and started two games.

Helm signed with Tennessee as a 4-star recruit last year. He’ll have three years of eligibility at Duke, but he’ll need to sit out next season, per NCAA rules. He’ll be eligible to play for the Blue Devils starting in 2016.
