Weddington QB commits to Duke

Weddington High quarterback Anthony Boone (above) committed to Duke after taking an unofficial visit to Durham last weekend, coach Phil Williams said.

Boone, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound junior, has more than 5,000 career rushing and passing yards. He threw for more than 1,200 yards and rushed for more than 300 yards this season for Weddington, which finished 0-11.

Boone was being recruited by N.C. State, Wake Forest, Clemson, Virginia Tech and Illinois, Williams said.

"I've coached 37 years," Williams, "and I coached a guy who played 10 years from the San Francisco 49ers (Jimmy Stuckey, a two-time All-American at Clemson) and Anthony is the best quarterback I've coached. "
