Boston College Basketball Recruiting: Eagles Eye Swedish Power Forward Billy Magarity

Cameron Spencer

The 6-foot-11 power forward visits this week and will decide between Seton Hall, Temple and Boston College sometime over the next two weeks.

This is sure to come as most welcomed news around this little corner of the internet.

Billy Magarity, a 6-foot-11 power forward from Sweden, is on campus this week visiting Donahue and the Eagles hoops program. Having already visited Seton Hall, he'll next tour Temple before choosing one of those three schools sometime over the next two weeks. Oregon State, USC, Northwestern and Baylor have also expressed interest in the big man from Sweden.

Sweden doesn't have high school basketball and he's probably hit his ceiling at the club level, so Magarity, whose father was a standout at Philadelphia's Cardinal Dougherty High School and later the University of Georgia, has decided to bring his game to the States.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Mike Jensen, in documenting Magarity's family roots to the city, describes the big man's game:

The 6-foot, 10-incher, who has lived in Sweden his entire life, has a body and so many basketball skills that are still expanding. He is as adept at blocking shots of 7-footers as he is at sinking baskets from small-man's land. More than that, his basketball IQ, his quick understanding of nuances, seems far ahead of his peers.

Magarity would add some sorely needed depth to the Eagles front court that features an out-of-position, 6-foot-8 All-ACC power forward and a 7-footer with knee troubles.

Highlights? Highlights.
