Duke football secures a commitment from standout two-way athlete Kolbe Harmon from Tennessee, boosting Manny Diaz’s 2025 recruiting class. Versatility is key in sports, and Harmon embodies this as both a wide receiver and defensive back.

On Thursday, Harmon announced his commitment to Duke on social media, marking a significant addition for Diaz and his team. The 5-foot-11, 165-pound athlete is ranked as the No. 20 player in Tennessee and had offers from prominent programs like Michigan, Miami, Louisville, Kentucky, Indiana, Penn State, Missouri, Tennessee, and Mississippi State.

Harmon’s position at Duke remains uncertain. While he’s primarily listed as a wide receiver by most recruiting sites, he could also play as a defensive back. “Most schools see me as a DB,” Harmon told The Tennessean in the spring. “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 focus, Harmon might end up playing defense, though Duke already has three cornerbacks committed for 2025. With only two wide receivers in the current recruiting class, Harmon’s position might be influenced by the team’s roster needs.

Duke’s 2025 class now includes 22 players, ranking No. 22 nationally according to 247Sports.com. Adding talents like Harmon will likely enhance their standing even further.
