LB Graham Stewart Decommits From Boston College, Headed To The Swamp

Xavier High School (Middletown, Ct.) linebacker Graham Stewart decommited from Boston College on Friday and now plans to play for the Gators, as reported in the New Haven Register. Stewart was one of the Eagles' prized recruits in this year's incoming class. 

Here's what Stewart said to the Orlando Sentinel's Chris Hays on Friday:

"Yeah I did verbally commit tonight," Stewart said over the phone late Friday night. "It was always my dream school, but with the coaching change, that had deterred me a bit.

"But just the overall energy of the place and of course it being Florida, it just seemed to be the best place for me to be to become a better student and a better athlete."

Florida was apparently a dream school for Stewart, but the Urban Meyer drama and the coaching instability made him steer clear of the Swamp. New coach Will Muschamp got in on Stewart's recruitment late, and, well, Will "TEMPLE OF BOOM" Muschamp vs. Frank Spaziani on the recruiting trail? I mean, he even used FedEx and stuff. BOOM!

As Eagle in Atlanta mentions, if there's one position where BC is deep, it's at the linebacker position. Guys like Luke Kuechly, Kevin Pierre-Louis and Steele Divitto should give the Eagles a strong core at LB for the next few years, and this year's incoming class already includes a bunch of other guys that could play at LB, including St. Xavier (Ohio)'s Sean Duggan and Steven Daniels.
