Boston College Football Recruiting: Everett Safety Lubern Figaro Commits To Wisconsin

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Everett safety chooses the Badgers over Boston College, Michigan State, Syracuse and Vanderbilt, the other finalists for his services.

Bit of recruiting news for your Wednesday evening. Everett safety Lubern Figaro, one of the few remaining uncommitted high school recruits out of Massachusetts, committed to Wisconsin this evening, choosing the Badgers over Boston College, Michigan State, Syracuse and Vanderbilt, the other finalists for his services.

The three-star safety had planned visits to all five of his finalists, but cut his recruitment short following a visit to Madison over the weekend. In addition to his finalists, Figaro also held offers from UConn, UMass, North Texas and Old Dominion.

Figaro cutting his commitment short and choosing the Badgers is a bit of a surprise. An overwhelming majority, including me, had Figaro to Michigan State in 247Sports' Crystal Ball. However, the fact that the Everett safety didn't choose Boston College isn't a surprise for those following his commitment closely -- one filled with stops and starts throughout. Figaro nearly made a decision over the summer, but postponed his decision until later in the fall. Once Figaro pushed out his decision, you had to figure he wasn't going to #BeADude.

Among BC's major recruiting targets from Massachusetts, the 6-foot-1 defensive back is the second major in-state miss for the coaching staff, joining running back Johnathan Thomas (Maryland). Addazio and the coaching staff have secured verbal commitments from seven Massachusetts recruits in the 2014 class, including 4* LB Connor Strachan (St. Sebastians Country Day, Needham), 3* DB Isaac Yiadom (Doherty Memorial, Worcester), 3* OL James Hendren (Dexter, Brookline), 3* LB Kevin Cohee (Roxbury Latin) and 3* OL Jon Baker (Millis).

The Eagles' 2014 recruiting class is currently 22 strong and ranked 28th nationally by Rivals.com.
