Nice things were said by head coach Mike Gambino.
"I really like the makeup of this class," Gambino said. "I think it's a class full of high character student-athletes who will have a huge impact on the field, in the clubhouse and around the Boston College community. I think it also shows the type of national recognition the BC degree carries when we can recruit Maine to Florida, out to California, and everywhere in between."
