Boston College Football Recruiting: 2013 RB Rachid Ibrahim Verbals To Pittsburgh Over BC, Iowa

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

The 6-foot-2, 185 pound running back/safety from The Avalon School in Gaithersburg, Maryland, chooses Pitt over his other two finalists, Boston College and Iowa.

According to Boston College's 247 Sports site, 2013 running back Rachid Ibrahim has committed to Pittsburgh. The 6-foot-2, 185 pound running back/safety from The Avalon School in Gaithersburg, Maryland, chooses Pitt over his other two finalists, Boston College and Iowa. Ibrahim also claimed offers from East Carolina and Ohio.

With the Eagles football program reeling, it's not a huge surprise that Ibrahim would choose Pitt over BC. But the Panthers are going through a rough stretch of football as well, having started the season 2-4, including an 0-3 mark in Pitt's final season in the Big East. He told Panther Digest.com (Scout) that Pitt's move to the ACC was a factor in his decision as was being able to stay close to home (though Pitt will only face Maryland twice over a 12-year period starting next season).

Pitt had offered the 3-star running back/safety only a few days ago.

This leaves Boston College with just one running back in the 2013 class, Harding HS (Warren, Ohio) RB LeShun Daniels. Athlete Myles Willis is a triple-option QB and is capable of playing running back, slot receiver or option quarterback.
