Eyes on BC's Reggie Jackson (ESPN Boston)
Boston College point guard Reggie Jackson is one of the more intriguing players in this year's NBA Draft, but recovering from a "minor procedure" on his knee, he surprisingly cancelled his remaining workouts, which leaves his draft status in question.

Add in the idea that the Blazers are attempting to move point guard Andre Miller, and you have the makings of a Jackson-to-Portland combo. However, if draft day comes and Jackson is not taken 21st overall, things could get a little bit interesting for Thunder fans.

Brian Dumoulin, Boston College. The highest-scoring defenseman in Hockey East last season, Dumoulin improved from 22 points as a freshman to 33 last year. As the team’s top returning scorer, he’ll get plenty of opportunities (and ice time) to surpass that number in 2011-12. In order to be a serious Hobey contender, however, Dumoulin has to score more goals—he had one as a freshman and three last season.

ILB Luke Kueckly, Boston College -- Just another in a long, long line of Boston College Eagles that I love as college prospects. Kueckly fits your typical BC mold: not physically elite, very football smart and projects very well to the pros. Never bet against a BC prospect.
