He was a Don Brown guy. I actually like his film a lot. Also think he's probably having to meet with the admission people as well when he comes up.


In that case did he have a UConn offer? Same problem applies - if he didn't warrant a UConn offer with a coordinator pushing him, why now a BC offer? Also, are we looking at him as an RB or some sort of DB?

Believe it's running back and like I said from what it seems he's worked hard in the classroom but still seems kind of borderline so that's why he doesn't have offers yet I would guess.

BC isn't as hard to get into as you would think for an athlete. I personally know a recruit who BC was pushing for who had a 2.6-2.8 gpa and he ended up going to a B10 school

It is not the 2.6 cum that is the problem. If the prospective recruit has that score (acceptable) but is at a shitty Florida school, and he can not solve 1 + 3, it gives BC pause to admit such a kid. Schools can make up grades as they wish.

Very accurate. I have a feeling they are going to rate Leshun Daniels similar

Comparing Monteroso to Daniels is proving prophetic.


If your talking about how they are both rated 131 in their position on ESPN, or rivals rating of Daniels as the 66th best player in the state, Monteroso being the 73rd, then sure. Didn't rate Daniels as high as i expected though.

EDIT: Didn't realize Monteroso was visiting Purdue today, I still think he stays but we will see.


The Dazzler strikes again!!!

Seriously, are we ever going to get another commit or what??!! Fuck. :dildodog

I sure hope The Dazzler turns out better than the last coach we supposedly hired because of his great recruiting :spaz2

Regardless, Stank Daziani has done absolutely nothing to allay the concerns pretty much everyone immediately raised when he was shockingly announced (outside of stealing UConn's DC for the same position). No coach will ultimately be judged solely upon how he handled the transition period. However, a controversial hire can certainly win some goodwill by kicking ass during it. Further, the players that he signs in a few weeks will go a long way in determining his coaching fate.

why? to elaborate on my question offer lists for each:

Webb: Rutgers, USF, Minnesota
Mitchell: G-tech, Wisconsin, Iowa, Rutgers, Arkansas, UConn Cuse
Spearman: none
Julian: NC State, Wisconsin, Arizona, Indiana

These would be three of our 4 or 5 best offer lists out of our current recruits. Now, I know its late in the process which skews things but they look OK.

I'm underwhelmed by Spearman. But, the others are promising.

BTW... I take absolutely no solace from those who say Spearman is under-the-radar only because he had the GPA of a functional illiterate. All that means is that he will come to BC... will likely not be good enough to see significant time... and then ruin our grad rates when he can't make it through class.

I think getting an official from Mitchell is very impressive and I'm happy they haven't given up on Julian (though we likely would only take one of the two).
Gov. Romney, when you were asked what is the biggest geopolitical foe facing America, you said Russia. And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back. The Cold War has been over for 20 years.

Mitchell wants to play QB. You can sell him on being the only Daz-like QB in the class. But, it is highly unlikely he would be willing to be the FOURTH QB prospect in the BC class of 2013. That said, BC should gladly take both if they wanted to come aboard. I'm just saying it is highly unlikely for one of them commit after the other.

Agreed I don't think they will land both but they would if they could I think I misunderstood what you were saying. Not sure which one I'd rather have I lean toward Mitchell because I still think one of Lowrie or Boyle will fit in the system.

Other big time programs bring in multiple QB/ATH each year. BC needs talent and I wouldn't deny any ACC level player who wanted to commit. Their play will determine the position they end up in, but it is unlikely that all four would commit. BC really needs a pass rushing DE. That's the most glaring hole in this and the last four Spazian recruiting classes.

JR says Wake commit LB Wendell Dunn will be visiting as well. Offers from UConn and WVU in addition to Wake.

If Daz is half the recruiter he's supposed to be, we should be able to land both RBs, 1 QB, and Dunn. I want to see him able to sell his vision and early PT and beat out some peer type programs.

Did McEvoy get arrested at USC? There was a problem at Bergen (I think he went there) but hadn't heard of anything recently

Edit: Didn't realize he had left SC for Juco. I thought out of HS he projected more as a WR/TE but he wanted to play QB, as he hadn't played much QB in high school.

McEvoy was originally down to Oregon and West Virginia, however he has decided to look at Wisconsin and Boston College.

"I might take a trip to either or both of them, I'm not sure. I don't have anything planned but I'm thinking about looking at those schools as well. I'll probably wait until closer to signing day to make my decision. But not too long."

McEvoy is the No. 33 overall player in the JUCO ranks and the No. 1 player at his position.

I suspect Daniels will end up being one of the gems on the field for BC, and I wouldn't even be surprised if we see him out there next year (I think either he or Duggan will see PT). I agree with others that Stewart may be a nice fit at SS. In that case he most definitely has a chance to see PT next year. I agree with others that ALJ would be a huge late pull for BC. Other than that I prefer to see us get at least one good S, and some more good O Lineman. RB's and WR's can wait til next year, unless say we can get McEvoy. The depth looks fine to me at those spots.


Im pretty sure McEvoy has stated that he wants to play QB in college and I dont think hes considering BC. I think with the way the freshman receivers were used this year and not redshirted, at least 1 WR in this class should be a consideration (as previously mentioned Juwan Caesar or Bridge)

Anyone else here rumors involving off-the-field activities that Tanner in trouble with local authorities and allegedly almost kicked out of Bergen (i.e. he's lucky he's the star of their FB team)???


Alright, I'll say it. He was arrested for allegedly selling weed about a month ago (as you clearly know), per a bunch of message board posts I've read. To be fair to him...I haven't seen it mentioned by any legitimate media source. Based on this (assuming it's true), I figure he's bound for North Carolina or South Carolina (most likely the latter). Would Rutgers even take him at this point?

The kid is a stud athlete. He is not a QB. RU would take him in a heartbeat. That is inline with the rumor I heard. But, I heard if more from the HS implications side. The rumor I heard was that the school decided to kick him out. I heard that the parents went ballistic and threatened to sue (went as far as hiring an attorney) and the school acquiesced. Don't know the validity of it as it came from Bosco sources.

I am pretty damn sure that Fitch is our Ohio recruiter. In the article in some random Ohio paper which announced his hiring, it said that Fitch was in town visiting with Monteroso.

Michael Parker won't let the NCAA recruiting calendar force his decision.

The ESPN 300 prospect said he won't announce any decision or sign with a school on national signing day. He'll visit his two finalists, Miami and Arizona State, in late March, meaning a decision might not come until April or later.


Michael Parker
Athlete
2013
Uncommitted: List

Pos RkStarsGradeHometown

83Nokesville, VA
"Yeah, I'm probably going to wait until after then," Parker said, referring to national signing day on Feb. 6. "I just want some time to make sure. It's the biggest decision in my life. I want to make sure it's the right decision."

At least one school, Boston College, pulled itself out of the chase for Parker when he informed coaches there that he was postponing his decision past February. Miami has expressed concern about the delay but said it will work with the four-star athlete. Clearly, the Hurricanes have made Parker feel wanted in Coral Cables.

"They show great love when I go down there," Parker said. "They're really high on your career after college and after football if football doesn't work out."

Waiting until after signing day should give Parker a bit more time to see if Miami will face severe NCAA sanctions. The Canes are involved in allegations that a booster provided extra benefits to athletes.

"The sanctions play a role in my decision making," said Parker, the No. 234 prospect in the country and No. 10 prospect in Virginia. "But they show so much love I can't even look at that. ... The sanctions aren't a huge factor in my decision, but I do think about it."

Parker's other finalist, Arizona State, also has made him feel wanted despite the fact that Tempe, Ariz., is two time zones away.

"They're great," Parker said. "Me and my recruiter, we talk probably every other day. We just keep up with each other. We're building a strong relationship. They're definitely competing with Miami. They play some tough football. That's what I like about them."

Parker also likes the fact that the Sun Devils need immediate help in the defensive backfield, where he is expected to play in college. He said he also likes the idea of helping rebuild the program.

Parker transferred from Nokesville (Va.) Kettle Run and is currently home schooled. He said he will transfer to Warrenton (Va.) Fauquier in a few weeks.
