Duke quarterback Anthony Boone recently received an invitation to the NFL combine, making it four former Blue Devils who will head to Indianapolis in February.

Boone publicized the recent invite on Twitter Tuesday. He is training with QB country, a quarterback coaching service run by David Morris, who played for current Duke coach David Cutcliffe while at Ole Miss. Boone recently participated in the East-West Shrine Game, where he completed 4-of-8 passes for 49 yards.

Earlier this month, right guard Laken Tomlinson, wide receiver Jamison Crowder and left tackle Takoby Cofield received invitations to the Combine as well. Tomlinson and Crowder both participated in the senior bowl, and both drew positive feedback from NFL personnel in attendance. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. recently said that Crowder projects to be taken as high as the second round. In December, Kiper rated Tomlinson the fifth-best guard available.

***In coaching news, Duke promoted Matt Guerrieri to assistant coach after three years of serving as a graduate assistant. Guerrieri fills the hole created when defensive line coach Rick Petri stepped down earlier this month (he is now the defensive line coach at Louisiana Tech). Guerrieri has worked with the safeties in recent years—his specific position assignment is TBA.
