OG Jack McDonald just got offered by the U. This class really is deep in a lot of ways that should be great for BC, and it will make it even more frustrating when we undoubtedly fail to deliver.

BC has been active in OH,MD,and DC the last week or so offers to Drew Barksdale,Trey Kilgore(St. X WR), and Jaleel Hytchye in OH. Jermaine Carter is from DC. The interesting case is that of the other offers which are kids that were from Red Lion Christian Academy in Deleware(home of USC's 2015 prodigy QB David Sills) The school's owners apparently were in debt so the whole football team transferred to Eastern Christian Academy in MD. In short it would be a huge school for Big Al to try and make inroads in. We just offered 4 of there kids, OG Khaliel Rodgers(probably the biggest other than Sills), Jahmere Irvin-Sills(could be a CB or WR), Daikiel Shorts(see Irvin-Sills), and RB Wendell Smallwood.

Don't worry, next year you'll say Spaz knew he had bad grades, because "that makes the most sense".

That's my guess as to what happened and I'm sticking to it. A decent coach at BC would have Montelus but .....

Yeah, apparently he is visiting ND, and has said he will then be ready to commit.

WR(2)- Charles Callinan and Dionte Taylor
TE(2)- Andrew Isaacs and either O'Neil or Nathan Marcus( There still going after TEs so I'm going to assume they want 2 for whatever reason. I think Isaacs sticks.)
OL(3)- Brad Henson,John Montelus,and Jack McDonald( Henson loves BC, Montelus is very close with the other MA kids and we should land them all so I think he will join them but that one is a coin flip I'm 50/50 on him as of now. This class should once again be very good on the OL)
DE(2)- Shakir Soto and Thomas Plonski(Soto it is still really early with so we'll see what happens there)
DT(3)- Maurice Hurst Jr, Tevin Montgomery, and Darius Commisiong( All 3 are leans and Hurst has decided to visit BC the same day Darius is coming up. I'm not a conspiracy theorist or anything but coincidence?)
LB(2)- Cory Jasudowich and Jack Cottrell
DB(2)- John Van Allen and Xavier Hines(Really DB is a total guessing game right now. A couple of new offers out there in Edwards and Baker so we'll see how there interest)
ATH(1)- Kyle Queiro


Also wouldn't be shocked to see them take a K as well. They've already offered one so to me it means they wouldn't mind taking one if they find the right guy. This will probably change alot but the strong points are obviously OL,DL,and WR. Altho the QB and RB groups if that happens I'd be very pleased with.



Going to have a little roundup today as well update to the offer list and all that stuff and then guys to watch at each without offers.

While I appreciate your efforts (which seems a hell of a lot more than what subscribers on EA are getting)... I will paraphrase a post I made last year:
So long as Gene and Spaz are calling the shots... we ain't landing any of them. And, that includes Isaacs who is already committed.

It took about a month for Spaz to completely blow-up this projection. That has to be some sort of record, considering we haven't hit May yet.

4 commits elsewhere, I no longer think anyone would consider Commisiong or Hurst or McDonald BC leans. I have no confidence Isaacs stays.

Commits from the rbs seem reasonably obtainable as one (Morris) has a single offer from Bryant and weighs 175 lbs, I have no idea where such a player would fit in our "offense," the other (Coppet) has offers from USF and Indiana so that would be a nail biter. O'neill is from the ISL and is a TE so he seems likely. Plonski has no offers, who knows. Callinan, Jasudowich, the QBs, Henson and one or more of the MA kids left (hurst, montgomery, McDonald) are the only kids with traditional BC level offers that seem to be a reasonable chance. Hines and Morris wouldn't seem like bad gets, but used to be the last minute type offers. Yes, this is very different from my take on basketball recruiting.

Bosa is another blown opportunity. We can't close on alumni kids who play positions where we have sent guys to the NFL.

I think we all understood what you meant: BC athletics in its current state... not some crazy fantasy neverneverland where we have a competent AD who makes enlightened coaching hires.

1. I honestly hope Spaz signs no one this year (would that be a record?). The writing on the wall is that he is gone so why tie up scholarships on kids from the ISL when a new coach can get in here and recruit OH, NJ, etc. like crazy.
2. I can't remember what my second point was because I started to think too much about my third before I had typed up my second...
3. I hate Spaz. Way to ruin the football program at my alma mater. jerk

I blame Gene more, Spaz just took the opportunity he wasnt getting anywhere else. Gene gave us fake searches and should have let him walk. If Bicknell ws promised the job, he should have gotten it.

Gene should have pulled a Costanza and stepped down right after the 2nd ACC Championship game. His legacy would have been good instead of total crap like now.

We have gone from #2 in both major sports to bottom of the barrel, if it wasnt for Hockey their would be no reason to have an Athletic Dept. The one sport Gene doesnt meddle in. It is so obvious who is the f-up.

The sad thing is that GDF is pretty much safe unless something really blows up or Leahy retires which he doesnt seem to be doing any time soon. I am convinced that unless some outside group raises enough money to force Leahy's hand, Flipolean continues on for as long as he wishes. there has to be a price in which BC decides there is too much money to pass up that Leahy forces Flipolean to develop an undisclosed illness and for us to respect his privacy.

i might try getting in touch with Lively and discuss with him the possibility of setting a non-profit or something like that. the dude is out there for sure but he's passionate and he seems to have good connections with the former players who probably have some money if they were in the nfl at one time (or so you would hope). i cant stand what is happening now, it makes me sick to my stomach, and i cant take any more years of this....

I think he's more likely to have a Gibson-esque "Why don't I have a first draft of the replacement coach listing?/I'm earning money for a filthy little cocksucker who takes advantage of me!" rant taped and leaked than for a non-profit to be set up.

Yes, and the merrymen are congratulating Spaz on doing his due diligence and not going after a player who obviously would've been a bad apple. At last glance they are ignoring the fact that he committed to Yale over offers from BC, Princeton, and Bentley

http://espn.go.com/high-school/football/events/elite-11/2012/story/_/id/7863795/qb-kevin-olsen-named-nyc-elite-11-regional-mvp-earns-elite-11-finals-invitel

Seems like a solid prospect from a big pipeline area (Catholic school in Ohio). FWIW, he's a Rivals250 (despite not having offers to reflect that status). I would mostly just love to see BC lockup an FBS QB for the next staff to develop.

Another one of the finalists at the New York City Elite 11 regional, junior Brogan Roback of St. John's (Toledo, Ohio), had nothing but kind words for eventual champion Olsen.

"He's a great player," Roback said. "I'm really happy for him. He and I developed a good relationship out here and I'm sure we'll carry that on going forward. He and I were neck and neck throughout the day, and it was fun being out here and competing against him."

Roback, who has earned offers from Ohio, Bowling Green and Toledo, said he enjoyed his time at the event.

"I'm glad I got out here and competed," he said. "It was fun. I'm glad I got to come out here to New York to experience all of this."

Roback also said he expects to hear from Boston College shortly. He completed 54.1 percent of his passes for 1,645 yards and 14 touchdowns last season, and he threw for better than 2,100 yards and 25 scores in his sophomore season. He's rated the nation's No. 38 pocket passer by ESPN.

While a brisk wind carried on throughout the event, Roback said he was used to it being from Ohio and having dealt with similar conditions while working out at Boston College earlier this week.

"It was windy all week," he said. "It was more windy than this when I was working out for Boston College with 30 mile per hour winds, so today wasn't as bad."

I'm at the point that I don't even bother to read the recruiting articles on EA any more. I know without clicking on it that it's either going to be about some kid from northern Vermont who we're competing with Stonehill and SUNY-Oswego for, or a 3/4* kid who we have absolutely no shot to land.
