Boston College Football: Get To Know The Dudes - #14 WR Gabriel McClary

A look at someone looking to crack the depth chart at wide receiver

BC Eagles Athletics

Name: Gabriel McClary
Number: #14
Position: Wide Reciever
Height: 6-foot-3
Weight: 185 lbs.
Hometown: Winter Park, Fl
High School: Winter Park

2013 Stats (HS): Earned First-Team 8A All-State honors in 2013 ... helped Winter Park to metro and district championships in 2013; registered five interceptions as a cornerback that season ... recorded 20 receptions for three touchdowns in 2013 and 23 receptions for 480 yards and two touchdowns in 2012 ... also excelled on the track ... won the 2013 4A District championship in 110-meter hurdles, 300-meter hurdles ... finished fifth in the triple jump in the state finals and ran the anchor leg in the 4-x-100-meter relay that finished fifth in the state finals.(via bceagles.com)

2014 Projections: As I said with Phillips, I would expect the wide receiver slots to be a wide open race, and that the freshman will have a great chance of grabbing playing time this season. Given his size and speed McClary could be an attractive option for Addazio and Ryan Day.  Also given his speed it wouldn't surprise me if he is used as a punt or kick returner. Also, like all true freshmen it's possible that he's redshirted as well.

How'd He Get Here: A three star wide receiver out of Winter Park, McClary chose Boston College over claimed offers from Appalachian State, Illinois, South Florida and the University of North Carolina. His primary recruiter was Todd Fitch.

Uniform History: There really hasn't been many #14's that have had big careers with the Eagles. Ceslaus Antos a half back from Salem Mass was the first player to wear it in 1928. David Gordon, the kicker who infamously defeated #1 Notre Dame wore the number in the 1990's. Ryan Read a wide receiver in 2000 wore it, along with wide receivers Johnathan Coleman and Billy Flutie later in the decade.
