Boston College Football Recruiting: Jonathan Hilliman Flips Commitment, Verbals To BC

USA TODAY Sports

Dude #24.

Boston College hosted St. Peter's Prep (NJ) running back and Rutgers commit Jonathan Hilliman over the weekend and it appears that Addazio was able to flip Hilliman's commitment. He's now a dude.

Hilliman, a Rivals four-star running back from Jersey City, originally committed to Rutgers over Ohio State back in August but took an official visit to the Heights this weekend. The 6-foot-1, 210 pound boast an impressive offer sheet of more than two dozen BCS AQ offers including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oregon and Wisconsin, among others.

Jonathan's former teammates Charlie Callinan (WR) and Michael Giacone (TE) currently play for the Eagles, likely helping Hilliman make his decision. Hilliman will be the third St. Peter's Prep Maurader in as many years to play on the Heights.

Hilliman is the latest in a string of Rutgers decommitments, joining WR David Njoku (Cedar Grove, NJ), WR Adonis Jennings (Haddonfield, NJ), Kiy Hester (Wayne, NJ) and CB Lamont Simmons (Jacksonville, FL). He joins an impressive group of Eagles running backs in the 2014 class that includes Marcus Outlow (Norwich, CT), Richard Wilson (Franklin, MI) and Sherman Alston (Montvale, NJ). Hilliman is the Eagles 24th commit in the 2014 class, but just the third Rivals.com four-star recruit in the class (joining DE Harold Landry and LB Connor Strachan).

The future at running back is certainly bright at the home of the Doak Walker Award winner.

Welcome to the Heights, Jonathan!
