Countdown To National Signing Day: Boston College Recruiting News And Notes, January 17

News and notes on the recruiting trail

We are just two weeks away from National Signing Day, so let's take a look at some of the news and notes regarding Boston College commits and some targets they may be going after.

Lezzer To Rutgers?

New Jersey linebacker Christian Lezzer claims that he is 100% committed to Boston College, but an article in NJ.com casts some doubt on that. This past week Lezzer was offered by Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood and had some interesting things to say about his recruitment:

"It's something to look at," he said. "Obviously, it's a little late. I have to talk to my family about it. I'm not sure yet, but I'm definitely gonna consider it."

Rutgers wants to bring in Lezzer for an official visit on January 31. A major reason to worry about this contact was that Rutgers was Lezzer's school of choice before Boston College pounced on him early. This will be a fluid situation and we will keep you up to date.

WR Help On The Way?

Boston College coaches understand that the loss of Alex Amidon is huge and the bare cabinet they have at WR is a concern. The staff appears to be on the move to address this. This week, OC Ryan Day has been out in force trying to find help at WR. First three star Lynn Haven (Fla) wide out Nat Dixon will be visitin Boston College this weekend, his second visit to the school. He also has offers from South Florida, Western Kentucky and Louisville.

The other wide out on the Eagles' radar is 6-foot-3, 200 pound wide receiver Melvin Holland Jr. out of Ashburn, Virginia. Holland Jr. was offered by the Eagles on January 16 and was visited at his high school by the coaching staff. He also has offers from Rutgers, Minnesota, Wake Forest and Wisconsin.

Local Defensive Tackle To Commit Soon?

Local papers are reporting that Oseh-Lie Saine, a 270 pound DT from Worcester has committed to Boston College. Saine, is currently at Worcester Academy getting his grades up; similar to what Steven Daniels did a few year ago.

"They’ve already offered and he’s pretty well set on it," confirmed Tony Johnson, head coach at Worcester Academy, where Saine is presently attending after graduating from Lincoln High last June.

Most of the recruiting services haven't announced this as official yet.
