Northside’s John Drew signs to play football for Duke

Northside defensive lineman John Drew signed with Duke Wednesday morning.

Drew, 6-foot-3, 295 pounds, was a second-team selection to the Ledger-Enquirer's All Bi-City football team for the past two years.

Blessed with size, quickness and agility, he was used on occasion as a short yardage back by the Patriots.

He committed to Georgia Tech after his junior season, but later switched to the Yellow Jackets' Atlantic Coast Conference rival Duke so he could play with his friend Shaw running back Kyle Griswould.

Drew had 62 total tackles and six sacks for the Patriots during his senior season
