Has not committed to BC— Myles Willis (@MylesAhead_12) July 19, 2012
BC got its first good news of the week recruiting wise, as Georgia athlete Myles Willis decided to commit to BC instead of
Conference USA Big East school Central Florida, according to Rival's Justin Rowland. Earlier in the year, Willis committed to the Knights but had decided to keep that a soft commit and continue to look at other schools. Willis is a solid chip for the Eagles, classified as a three-star recruit per Rivals who has a litany of offers including Florida State, Wake Forest, Virginia, Mississippi State and Connecticut.
The 5-foot-10, 180 pounder is classified as an athlete and can do a variety of things on the football field:
The Knights view Willis -- a triple option quarterback in high school -- as a general offensive player capable of playing running back, slot receiver or wildcat quarterback. The coaches also said they wanted to use him as a punt returner early in his career.
Recruiting season can be funny, but it appears that BC showed Willis something he wasn't expecting, because this is what he had to say after he verballed to UCF
"I'm not really sure," he said. "I do want to see Boston College because you don't want to leave anything unseen. … After visiting UCF, I can't imagine seeing anything else that I would want. That's something I will have to speak with my parents and my coaches about."
Willis is recruit #14 of the current season by Frank Spaziani and the Eagles coaching staff. He is Boston College's first recruit out of Georgia this year and joins Zach Wolfe, Bryan Davis and Nigel Matthews as Eagles from the Peach State.
