Boston College Basketball Targets Alex Dragicevich, Tony Gill Hit Campus This Weekend

New, 26 comments

Boston College basketball targets Alex Dragicevich and Tony Gill will make visits to campus this weekend, according to Eric Hoffses.

Dragicevich is a 6-foot-7 shooting guard that has spent the last two seasons at Notre Dame. Dragicevich decided to transfer back on March 27 in part because of concerns about playing time. Dragicevich was behind a number of talented guards in South Bend. The sophomore played in all 34 games this past season, starting 10 of those contests. He averaged 20.9 minutes and 6.6 points per game, shooting 39.2 percent from the field and 34.2 percent from deep.

Dragicevich has already visited Northwestern and Loyola (Illinois) and is also looking at Valparaiso. The Glenbrook North (Illinois) prospect would get to stay close to home should he pick either Northwestern or Loyola. But if he wants more playing time and an opportunity to shoot the three, well ...

The only problem with adding a kid like Dragicevich -- or any transfer for that matter -- is one of scholarship management. Dragicevich would have to sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules and that would put him in the rather large, seven member freshman class for the 2013-14 season. If I'm Donahue, I want to try to spread the scholarships over four years as much as possible so we avoid having to bring in 7-8 members for the 2015 class.

Tony Gill is a 6-foot-9 junior college transfer from Cosumnes River College in Sacramento. He plays the four and is also being recruited by Long Beach State, UC-Riverside and Cal Poly, among others.
