Alonzo Saxton (5'11, 175, 4.6) picked Duke over several BCS offers. The Ohio native becomes the fifth commitment from the class of 2014 for head coach David Cutcliffe.

Sources confirmed on Tuesday that Alonzo Saxton has verbally committed to Duke.

The 5-foot-11, 175 pound cornerback out of Columbus (Ohio) Bishop Hartley chose Duke over offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Navy, Northwestern, Purdue, Toledo, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

He also had strong interest from Ohio State, Notre Dame, and Michigan State as recently as December.

Scout.com ranks Saxton as the nation's No. 39 cornerback, and a three star prospect.
