Boston College Football Recruit In Transfer Controversy

[Front page'd - B]

2013 recruit David Coggins, who verbally commited to BC last month, is embroiled in controversy as he attempts a last minute transfer for his senior year of high school.

According to the Republican-American, Coggins and teammate Javon Martin - whose mother is Coggins' legal guardian - are attempting to transfer from Sacred Heart High School to Naugatuck High School. Sacred Heart would not release the students' transcripts until their outstanding tuition balance was paid. Both students reportedly needed to take final exams earlier this week to complete their junior year as well.

The transfers are under investigation by the Connecticut Interscholastic Athetic Conference. The investigation resulted in the suspension of Naugatuck head coach Rob Plasky on Tuesday. Plasky submitted his resignation earlier today. Neither Coggins nor Martin attended Monday's season opening practice, and Martin's mother is reportedly still looking to establish residency in Naugatuck.

All in all, it's an all-around bizarre situation. Why are these students just now taking final exams for a school year that ended nearly three months ago? Why did Plasky - who fought to retain his job when he was fired three years ago - resign before this investigation picked up any speed? How will the potential transfers play out with practice already underway, school starting next week, and the students not yet having residence in the borough?

From BC's perspective, can Coggins - who missed the entirety of his junior year due to ankle injury - afford to miss any time this season due to this situation? And can the 2013 recruiting class, which already had TE Andrew Isaacs decommit last week, afford to lose another receiver?
