W.C. Rustin's Anthony Nash commits to Duke for football

Anthony Nash, a two-sport standout at West Chester Rustin, has orally committed to play football at Duke.

"I think Duke's pro-style offense is a good fit for me," said the 6-foot-4, 186-pound senior wide receiver. "And the coaches told me there's a chance I could start as a true freshman. That possibility excites me."

Last year, Nash, also a cornerback for the Golden Knights, caught 48 passes for an area-best 1,105 yards and 15 touchdowns. He was an Inquirer second-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania selection.

The 17-year-old also stars in basketball. Last season, he averaged 15 points and nine rebounds per game while helping lead W.C. Rustin to a 25-5 record and the second round of the PIAA Class AAAA state tournament.
