Boston College Football Recruiting: DE Harold Landry Still Committed To Boston College [UPDATE]

Nothing to see here.

UPDATE 1:

Nothing to see here.

EARLIER THIS EVENING:

One of Boston College's top rated recruits in the 2014 class has decommitted and is reopening his recruitment.

The Eagles coaching staff was in early on the 6-foot-3, 242 pounder from Fayetteville, North Carolina, securing a verbal commitment from Landry back on April 5. At the time, the weak-side defensive end, Addazio's third verbal commit for the 2014 class, was flying a bit under the radar. However, after committing to the Eagles, Landry's recruitment heated up, landing additional offers from South Carolina, Clemson, N.C. State, Miami, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, Florida State, Auburn, Ohio State, Missouri, Indiana, North Carolina, Syracuse and Tennessee.

The timing of Landry reopening his recruitment is a bit strange. The North Carolina native, who couldn't make Boston College's home games as easily as other local commits, took in the Eagles' road game at Clemson this past weekend ($) and saw some positive signs from BC's close loss to the #3 ranked Tigers.

Best of luck to Landry going forward.

The loss of Landry leaves the Eagles with 21 commitments in the 2014 class but just one on the defensive line -- Immaculata (NJ's) SDE / TE Joe Vitiello. Restocking the defensive line will certainly be a focus for the staff as they look to round out the 2014 recruiting class. Next season, Boston College loses both starting ends -- Kaleb Ramsey and Kasim Edebali -- and starting LT Jaryd Rudolph to graduation. In addition, DT Mehdi Abdesmad will be returning from a season-ending patellar tendon injury suffered in the loss to Florida State.
