Boston College Football: Get To Know The Dudes - #21, CB Manny Asprilla

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Today, "Get to know" ... corner back Manny Asprilla

Name: Manny Asprilla

Position: Corner Back

Number: #21

Year: Senior

Height: 5 foot 11

Weight: 178 lbs.

Hometown: Everett, MA

High School: Everett

2013 Stats: Manny Asprilla was possibly BC's strongest CB in 2013. He finished the season 4th on the team in tackles with 68 (55 solo), two interceptions, six pass break ups, a forced fumble and a blocked kick against Maryland.

2014 Projections: If BC is going to have a shutdown corner this year (and I'm not sure they will) it will be Asprilla. While he is far from perfect, he is still the best cornerback on the team. In a defense that stresses pressure, I would expect Asprilla to have an even bigger this year in terms of interceptions, but also a few plays to occur when he gets left alone and gets burned. Part of the double edged sword of Don Brown's defense.

How'd He Get Here: Asprilla was a 2* recruit via Rivals that chose Boston College with no other listed offers.

Twitter Feed: None that I can find.

Kick returner/half back Tyrone Taylor wore it during the Doug Flutie years in 85/86. DB Trevor White wore the number from 1999-2002.
