The recruiting season is beginning to pick up steam as the Boston College football program received yet another verbal commitment for the Class of 2014 -- the second in a week. Krondis Larry, a running back from Booker T. Washington High School in Miami Florida, announced his decision on Twitter.
Just committed to BOSTON COLLEGE OFFICIALLY A EAGLE.........— Krondis Larry (@THEHUMANJET) April 2, 2013
He is an intriguing recruit because he is brings a characteristics that have been lacking at Boston College. He runs a 4.3 40. According to his Scout.com profile he played a little slot receiver as well, so he might fill the role currently held by Tahj Kimble. He is a little undersized at 160 pounds, but give him some time in the weight room and he will be college size ready.
Like many 2014 recruits, Krondis does not currently have a ranking on any of the four major recruiting services. Boston College was his first offer -- the school offered him in the last week -- but he apparently had interest from Alabama, Oregon, West Virginia, Illinois, Miami and Florida State.
Krondis, whose Twitter handle is THE HUMAN JET, is the first recruit from Florida (Coach Todd Fitch's area of recruiting). In his junior year he gained 800 yards rushing, 200 yards receiving and 16 total touchdowns as Booker T. Washington won a State Championship.
He is the second running back in the class joining Connecticut's Marcus Outlow and third overall.
Highlights from his junior year can be seen here.
Welcome to Boston College, Krondis!
UPDATE: Krondis has since deleted his Tweet announcing his commitment. And so we wait ...
