Boston College scored another local recruit this week as West Hartford running back Sharrieff Grice committed to Boston College.
Sharrieff Grice has committed to the #BCEagles after a strong camp performance.— Justin Rowland (@RowlandRIVALS) June 4, 2014
The junior, who camped at Boston College this week, received offers this past week from New Hampshire, Albany and Boston College. Previously Grice held offers from Rutgers and UMass as well. He is a two-star rated recruit per Rivals who checks in at 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds. According to his game tapes, Grice runs a 4.58 40-yard dash. Though it's not listed anywhere, my guess is his recruiters are Don Brown (his region) and Al Washington (running backs coach).
Grice is the second running back in this class, joining three-star New York running back Jordan Gowins, and the second recruit from the state of Connecticut. He is the 10th member of the class of 2015.
Interestingly, Sharrieff is also a BC legacy as his father Greg played wide receiver in the mid 90's for the Eagles under Tom Coughlin. Greg made some big catches, including a Glenn Foley touchdown pass in Happy Valley that helped the Eagles snap Penn State's 10 game win streak against the Eagles.
Below you can see his picture as he was at a Rivals camp.
