David Coggins, a 2013 wide receiver from Waterbury Connect and who had verbally committed to Boston College has changed his mind and has officially decommitted.
"It's not out there yet, but I have de-committed from BC," he said Tuesday night. "I wanted to keep my options open and see what else is out there."
Coggins was an interesting recruit, and brought with him a great high side but also some questions as well. In his sophomore season he made 78 catches for 1,400 yards and 13 touchdowns. However he missed the entire 2011 season with an ankle injury. The biggest question mark came this summer when he was suspended for four games for accepting money to transfer to Naugatuck High School.
"I didn't know my legal guardian took the money," Coggins said. "I wanted to transfer because I couldn't afford Sacred Heart. Some of that money was for tuition [past due]. Now I have my tuition [reduced]."
Coggins says that BC isn't out of the picture, and that he just wanted to open his recruitment to other schools. But given Spaziani's track record with recruits who decommit, it's a safe bet that Coggins won't be wearing maroon and gold.
The loss of Coggins leaves BC with three wide receivers in the 2013 class as well as Iowa transfer Marcus Grant . The Eagles still have wide receivers Drew Barksdale, Charles Callinan and Dan Monteroso committed for next year.
