Name: Connor Wujciak

Position: Defensive Tackle

Number: #90

Year: Senior

Height: 6-foot-3

Weight: 300 lbs.

Hometown: West Caldwell, NJ

High School: Seton Hall Prep

2013 Stats: Connor played in all 13 games last season for the Eagles, playing mostly the backup at the right tackle position. He recorded 24 tackles (13 solo), and had one forced fumble against Wake Forest and a pass break up against Villanova.

2014 Stats: A huge year out of the defensive tackle, as he earned All-ACC third team honors. He started in all 13 games for the Eagles, registering 33 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, and plugging up the middle against the run. He was one of the biggest reasons BC had the 2nd ranked rushing defense in the country.

2015 Projections: The world is about to get to know Connor Wujciak. He is ready to have one of those BJ Raji-type seasons where he dominates one entire aspect of the game. I expect BC's rushing defense to be phenomenal again this year, and for Wujciak to not only make big plays there, but also start to make some plays on the pass rush. Wujciak is going to be an All ACC Player this year, mark it down.

How'd He Get Here: A 4* defensive end out of Seton Hall Prep, Wujciak was ranked the 243rd overall recruit in the 2011 class (see Spaz could get them at one point), and chose Boston College over claimed offers from Cincinnati, Maryland, Michigan St., Minnesota, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Rutgers.

Uniform History: Only 7 people in the history of Boston College football have worn the number 90. The first was Ed Finn, a tight end for the Eagles in the 1970s. Tom Martin a defensive tackle from 2000-2003 wore the number as well, followed by one of BC's finest defensive tackles, B.J. Raji who wore it before heading to the NFL as a starting Pro Bowl caliber DT for the Green Bay Packers.
