Boston College lost what arguably was one of their most highly rated recruit from 2013 today when DT Tevin Montgomery reportedly left the team:

While this goes without saying, this is a big loss for the Eagles. No word yet on why the freshman is leaving the team, but his departure adds yet another hole that BC will have to fill this year. Montgomery did not play this year, but it was expected that he was redshirted, and these rumors intensified when fellow freshman Truman Gutapfel saw the field first.
Going into 2014 Boston College is going to be very thin at the defensive tackle position. They will still have senior Dominic Appiah, Gutapfel, and junior Connor Wujciak to fill the position. Currently there are no recruits slotted in for defensive tackle in this upcoming class. That is a scary thin group.
Looking ahead the loss of Montgomery makes the recruiting of South Carolina DT Zeek Rodney that much more critical. The 6-1, 265 pound Rodney is scheduled to visit Boston College this month along with Marshall and Syracuse. Looking at the depth it is very clear that the Eagles are going to need to fill it with some recruiting. Let's hope that Addazio and lead recruiter Al Washington can seal the deal on Rodney.
Best of luck in your future Tevin.
