Duke adds four early enrollees

Duke announced Wednesday that four freshmen have enrolled for the spring semester and will be eligible to participate in spring practice.

They are:

  • Quarterback Parker Boehme

  • Receiver/defensive back Evrett Edwards

  • Defensive back Quay Mann

  • Linebacker Dominic McDonald

All four graduated from high school last month.

Boehme played quarterback under former Duke receiver Adam Geis at Sandalwood High in Jacksonville Beach, Fla. As a junior, Boehme accounted for 3,202 yards and 40 touchdowns and earned all-state recognition before his senior campaign was cut short because of injury.

Edwards played at Woodbridge High in Virginia, posting career totals of 107 tackles, 10 interceptions and 21 pass breakups.

Mann had over 900 all-purpose yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior at Northern Nash High School in Rocky Mount, N.C. A three-time all-conference pick, Mann was selected to the North Carolina squad for the annual 76th Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas.

McDonald was a first-team 8A all-state selection as a senior at Lake Brantley High in Longwood, Fla., and was selected to play in the Florida North-South All-Star game played last month.
