One of the few bright spots this season has been the play of the Boston College linebackers. Of course most of the praise has been dumped upon Luke Kuechly, but solid play by Kevin Pierre-Louis, Sean Duggan and Steele Divitto can't be over looked as well. It appears that Spaz has added another recruit that will hopefully shore up his linebacker depth for years to come, especially if Kuechly leaves next season.
Bobby Wolford, a 6-3, 230 pound linebacker from Jacksonville, Florida recently decommitted from BYU and will sign with Boston College in February, according to rivals.com. Wolford had said earlier that religion and strong moral codes were the reason he chose the Cougars, but in the end he decided to pick a school closer to home. Is Boston really that much closer to Jacksonville than Provo, Utah? Whatever ... we will take him.
Even if BC loses Kuechly next season, they have ample recruits to fill his shoes. Wolford is the third LB recruit of Spaziani's recruiting class joining Steven Daniels, Timothy Joy and Michael Strizak. After the rough season BC's offensive line has had can we forget about the moniker O-Line U? Isn't it about time BC gets recognized as a school that has produced some high quality linebackers? Mathias Kiwanuka, JoLonn Dunbar, Mark Herzlich and Luke Kuechly have all made their marks either during their time at BC or in the NFL.
I love the depth on defense, but am getting a little worried that the Eagles haven't recruited any skill players to improve our lackluster offense. Akeel Lynch looks like he'll be a solid tailback, but little has been done to address the lack of depth at wide receiver.
Of course, all of this talk can change in a minute. Signing day is still months away and there could be a lot of changes at the Heights between now and then.
