Boston College Football Recruiting: DB Taj-Amir Torres Commits To Eagles

Local recruit is #22, and fifth in the past 36 hours.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The dizzying pace of commitments for Boston College continued this afternoon as local recruit Taj Amir Torres (Amherst, MA) committed to Boston College.

It sounds like Taj committed to the Eagles after camping with the team over the past week, though according to Twitter he has been on BC's radar since January. He doesn't currently have a Rivals or 247 page, so there isn't a lot of information out on him right now. It sounds like he has offers from UConn and UMass, but not a 100% sure. He runs track as well, and won the state 100 yard dash so looking at that speed you have to be impressed. One of the knocks I have seen about this class has been the lack of speed at the WR/CB position, and grabbing a local kid like Torres will help with that. Watching his game film, he has a good knack for making hits and knocking the ball loose, though in many cases he looks like he is saving plays from behind. Hopefully with a little seasoning and coaching he can make those type of plays at the line of scrimmage or close to.

Welcome to the Heights Taj-Amir!
