Duke Blue Devils add Forsyth Country Day TE

Forsyth Country Day tight end Nick Sink has accepted a scholarship to Duke, his coach said a few minutes ago.

Sink, who is 6-foot-6 and 245 pounds, was also being heavily recruited by North Carolina and Kentucky, although neither had offered yet.

“Duke’s been recruiting him from Day One,” said Country Day coach Mark Moroz. “This was pretty much a dream come true for him. His grades are fantastic. And he certainly has the ability to play in the ACC.”

Moroz said the Blue Devils offered two nights ago, and that Sink accepted Wednesday night. Duke plans to start him out at tight end.

In nine games so far this year, Sink has 26 catches for 426 yards and four touchdowns. He also plays DE, where he has 43 tackles, including three sacks and 13 tackles for loss. He’s caused two fumbles, and is also the team’s long snapper.

How athletic is the big guy? He also starts for the varsity at power forward, and holds the school record for three-pointers. And he puts the shot for the track team.
