National Signing Day: Tight End Tom Sweeney Commits To Boston College

Tom Sweeney, a tight end from Don Bosco Prep in New Jersey, commits to the Eagles.

Tom Sweeney

Hometown: Ramsey, N.J.
High School: Don Bosco Prep
Position: Tight end-Y
Height:
6-foot-5.5
Weight: 220 lbs
40: 4.75
Twitter: N/A

Rankings: Rivals 2*, Scout 2*, ESPN 3* (35 position, 181 regional, 37 state), 247Sports Composite 2* (1998 national, 87 position, 52 state). Boston College is Sweeney's only offer. Drew interest from Miami, Rutgers, Virginia and Notre Dame.

Highlights: Hudl

Strengths: At 6-foot-5, 225 pounds, Sweeney has decent size and should fit well into Addazio / Day's offensive system at the Y position. He's a big target with good hands and also holds his own blocking. Sweeney continues the long line of players to go from Bosco-to-BC and was coached by BC dad, Greg Toal.

Realistic Outlook: BC has options at the Y over the next few years. C.J. Parsons, Michael Giacone and Louie Addazio should be able to fill the position next season so it's hard to see Sweeney seeing the field here next season. And that's OK. Hopefully Sweeney uses this first year to add a few pounds to his already big frame and learn the Addazio/Day offense. That should put him in a great position to compete with Giacone and Addazio for the starting Y position as early as 2015.
