This is a huge get for Duke. This is great news for their football program. Brice got a bit lost in the hype of Trevor Lawrence, but he’s a very good quarterback.

It’s just hard to get on the field when arguably the best college quarterback in a generation is ahead of you on the depth chart.

Brice sat on the bench for long enough, and he wanted to get on the field. You can’t blame him at all for transferring, and he landed at another ACC program.

Let’s also not forget that Brice was instrumental to Clemson’s national title run two seasons ago. When Lawrence went down against Syracuse, Brice came in and led the Tigers to the win.

If he hadn’t played so well in that game, there’s a very real chance Clemson wouldn’t have won the championship over Alabama.

It should be a ton of fun to see what he can do with Duke, but there’s no doubt this is big news for the Blue Devils.
