Boston College Football Receives Commitment From Minnesota LB Jack Cottrell

The men's hockey team wasn't the only program making headlines this weekend. On Saturday, Frank Spaziani received his second verbal commitment for the Class of 2013 in Minnesota LB Jack Cottrell. The 6-foot-4, 215 pound linebacker hails from Eden Prairie High School.

Only a few weeks ago, Cottrell, a three-star OLB according to Rivals, was mentioned in SI.com's Recruiting Notebook.

Boston College became the first BCS school to offer for to Eden Prairie (Minn.) linebacker Jack Cottrell last week, but it certainly won't be last. At 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, Cottrell appears to be just tapping into his reservoir of potential. He moves well for a big linebacker, knows how to finish tackles and plays for one of Minnesota's top prep teams and a consistent producer of Division-I talent. Look for his stock to rise when the spring evaluation period hits in mid-April and college coaches start filtering through Eden Prairie.

Cottrell visited campus a week and sounds like the trip went well. So well that he decided to commit to BC. His only other current offer was with FCS's North Dakota, but Rivals also lists Iowa, Iowa State, Minnesota, Northwestern and Western Michigan as having interest in the linebacker.

Cottrell joins Manchester, Connecticut TE Andrew Isaacs as the second member of the Class of 2013.
