Ex-Miami Commit Albert Louis-Jean Verbals To Boston College

Scout.com made the rumor official yesterday, reporting that Albert Louis-Jean is coming to the Heights. A former Miami recruit, Louis-Jean decommitted from the U after Randy Shannon and the school parted ways.

ALJ is a 6-foot-1 four star safety out of Brockton High School. He was ranked as the top-ranked 2011 prospect in New England, and the number nine prospect in the nation. He is expected to enroll early and could make an impact as early as next season.

This is a really good get from Spaz and the coaching staff (specifically, Siravo and Devine). This keeps a local talent in New England, and will help the Eagles reload in the secondary. BC's defensive back DeLeon Gause's college career is already over, as his knee injury will require more extensive surgery than originally anticipated. The Eagles will also lose both Wes Davis and Chris Fox to graduation next season.

Landing ALJ could instantly give Spaz a defensive playmaker in the secondary. BC's 2011 recruiting class now includes four safeties (Louis-Jean, Josh Keyes, Ameer Richardson and Spencer Rositano) and a cornerback (Manny Asprilla), but ALJ is easily the most highly touted recruit of the bunch.

ALJ had offers from a dozen Division I schools, but picks BC over Miami, Penn State, Notre Dame and Stanford, among others. If Louis-Jean needs any extra motivation, Miami is back on BC's schedule in ALJ's freshman (2011) and sophomore (2012) seasons.

Welcome to the Heights, Louis-Jean.
