Duke football has secured a commitment from Kolbe Harmon, a highly versatile two-way athlete from Tennessee, for the class of 2025. Harmon, a wide receiver and defensive back standing 5-foot-11 and weighing 165 pounds, is ranked as the No. 20 player in Tennessee. He had offers from schools such as Michigan, Miami, Louisville, Kentucky, Indiana, Penn State, Missouri, Tennessee, and Mississippi State, among others.

On Thursday, Harmon announced his commitment to the Blue Devils on social media, marking a significant addition for head coach Manny Diaz and his program. While his exact position at Duke remains uncertain, with most recruiting sites listing him as a wide receiver, Harmon has mentioned that many schools view him as a defensive back. “Most schools see me as a DB,” Harmon said in a spring interview with The Tennessean. “There’s a couple that see me as an athlete or receiver. I love both positions. … Ultimately, I wanna get on the field and be set up for the big league, where I play best at or where they see me best at.”

Given Diaz’s defensive background, it’s plausible that Harmon might play on the defensive side. However, with three cornerbacks already committed to Duke’s 2025 class and only two wide receivers, his final position could be influenced by the roster needs.

Duke’s current recruiting class consists of 22 players and is ranked No. 22 nationally by 247Sports.com, a ranking likely to rise as Diaz continues to recruit players of Harmon’s quality.
