Much like it has been for many other 2021 recruits, the recruiting process came at Pine-Richland linebacker Jeremiah Hasley fast and furious.  Starting with his first offer in December, from UPenn, Hasely quickly racked up offers from Columbia, Navy, Army, Harvard, Austin Peay, Lehigh, Air Force, Dartmouth, Yale, Youngstown St, William & Mary, Fordham, Holy Cross, Richmond, Furman and Kent St. offered as recently as June 20.

But it took just one trip to Duke University for the talented Hasley to decide where he wanted to play college football and get his degree. “The culture Coach Cutliffe has made. It is a family who loves to play football and makes sure academics is most important. That’s what sold me.” said Hasley just two days after he received his offer from Duke. “I fell in love with the place and knew it is where I wanted to go.”  He made his announcement on twitter Monday:

Hasley helped lead the Rams to a state title in 2020, scoring from 14 yards out but it was his aggressive defensive play that captured the eyes of the Duke football staff.  Hasley was recruited as a linebacker. “It felt like home to me. It has one of the best academics in the nation and a great football program” added Jeremiah of his choice. Both Cutliff and Coach Mcgrath recruited Hasley. “They both were so excited for me to go there. I bonded really well with Coach Mcgrath, my position coach, and he is great at what he does.”

His parents helped Jeremiah throughout the entire process. “It was fun and stressful. Lots of traveling and lots of decision making. They were along my side the whole time. They gave me the support for my decision and loved me for it.” Hasley says his father has been his biggest influence throughout his life. “He started to let me play at a young age, I’ve been playing football for 11 years, and let me love the game like how he did

When we asked what the Blue Devils will be getting in return for his commitment he said “They are getting a player who is hard working and someone who loves his teammates and the game. I will compete day in and day out to get our team to the top. I’m just excited to play in one of the best conferences in the country. We will be playing against the best which is always the goal.”

As for this upcoming season, “This doesn’t mean that I’m done with my senior year. I’m more focused and more excited with this process being over. I can’t wait for this season to happen so we can show we are the best
