Name: Kevin Kavalec
Position: Defensive End
Weight: 251 lbs.
Hometown: Middleberg Heights, OH
High School: St. Ignatius
2013 Stats: Kavalec was mostly the backup to Kasim Edebali in 2013 during his freshman year. Played in eight games last season. Kevin debuted against Florida State where he had one solo tackles against the Seminoles. Finished the season with three tackles.
2014 Projections: With Kasim and Kaleb Ramsey graduating, this year would be a perfect opportunity for Kavalec to step up and grab the starting role. With the experience that he gained last year, Kavalec could slide right in and give BC someone who has competed at this level. However, with freshman Harold Landry jumping into the mix, he could jump someone on the depth chart as well and that person could be Kavalec. This will be an interesting position battle going into the season.
How'd He Get Here: According to Rivals, Kevin was a 2* recruit that chose Boston College over claimed offer from Ohio. His primary recruiter was former offensive line coordinator Jim Bollman.
