Boston College Football: Get To Know The Dudes - #18, WR Dan Crimmins

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Today, "Get to know" ... WR Dan Crimmins

Name: Dan Crimmins

Position: Wide Receiver

Number: #18

Year: Junior

Height: 6-foot-5

Weight: 223 lbs.

Hometown: Closter, NJ

High School: Demarest

2013 Stats: Played in 10 games and started in two for the Eagles in 2013. Caught 10 balls for 61 yards, including a career-high 15 yards in the opener vs. Villanova. Caught at least one pass in nine of the 10 games he played in. Possesses good hands and runs pretty good routes. One gets the feeling he was open more than he was targeted last season.

2014 Projections: At 6-foot-5, 223, Crimmins is the biggest receiving target on the roster and has the build of a tight end. Best case is that the junior makes the jump and features prominently in the Eagles passing attack, splitting the workload with Bordner and a healthy Swigert. Worse case, Crimmins is again lost in the shuffle as the receiving corps struggles to replace Alex Amidon's production.

How'd He Get Here: A Rivals three-star athlete out of high school, Crimmins selected the Eagles over claimed offers from UConn and Temple. Maryland, Penn State and Rutgers also showed interest in the Demarest product. Recruited by Bill McGovern.

Twitter Feed: You can follow Dan on Twitter @theREALdcrim1, though it's a protected account.

Uniform History: All sorts of different positions have worn the #18 jersey for the maroon and gold over the years; every position from halfbacks (Edward Aaron 1928-30) to kicker (Ken Kanzler 1985), defensive backs (Jeff Kaufman 1975-78) to offensive guard (Matthew Ruggiero 1945). A recent fan favorite, JUCO transfer QB Paul Peterson wore the #18 during the 2003 and 2004 seasons. Crimmins will be looking to replicate the success of another New Jersey wide receiver, #18 Rich Gunnell, who served as team captain during his senior year (2009).
