Boyle had offers from Florida and Connecticut. I wonder if he is reconsidering his decision.
That said, this is not a good recruiting year for B.C. . . . and Boyle, according to some , is the highest rated recruit in the class!
I dont think Walsh is a definite answer. Theres a reason he had no BCS offers. I think that as a late pick up to fit Addazios system hes fine, but if Im Boyle I dont let this alter my decision. With a decent QB class next year, and the fact that BC hopefully has a good shot at Wolford (who's listed as a Pro Style but actually has a good deal of mobility) I think that Walsh is actually fits well as a flyer type, late fill in, who fits a system and could develop, but it wont be the end of the world if he doesn't.
The fact is, at QB, after Chase there is a huge question mark in Suntrup, and then nothing. We'll see how addazio manages the roster (with redshirts), but taking 3 in this case isnt as bad as it seems and hopefully all three guys realize that and stick. As had been mentioned before, I think that Boyle (or any traditional "pocket passer") can adapt and run Addazios system with Chris Crane being a prime example of a guy who has done it with Logan and had a great deal of success.
In regards to Boyle flipping, most of the previous offers he had already have a guy at QB. The one that scares me is Syracuse as their number 1 guy flipped to TCU with the coaching change and I believe they're taking 2 this season. Florida and Pitt have guys committed (Pitt has a guy on campus already) and yukon is a dumpster fire that I doubt Boyle would consider seriously.
