Boston College received some bad news on Monday, as 2017 defensive end recruit Kwity Paye switched his verbal commitment from Boston College to the University of Michigan (according to multiple twitter reports):
2017 3-star DE/LB Kwity Paye flips commitment from Boston College to Michigan https://t.co/w3u3q9ERFe— Maize n Brew (@MaizenBrew) October 24, 2016
This shouldn’t be a surprise, (as again according to Twitter) Paye had been visiting Michigan and seemed up in the air recently. The Rhode Island native was recruited originally by former defensive coordinator Don Brown who now coaches for the Wolverines.
Losing Paye is a tough pill to swallow for the Eagles as he was one of the top rated recruits remaining with this class. According to ESPN he was considered to be a 4* recruit, and we can all bet that now that he is with Michigan his ratings will see a spike.
This is Brown’s first major poach of a recruit from the Eagles, but it may not be his last. The next name to keep an eye on his Brandon Sebastian, another commit that may have connections with Brown, who was also offered by the Wolverines. Sebastian may be particularly coveted as Brown looks to lock down his Cheshire teammate 4* wide receiver Tarik Black, and Sebastian’s brother Bryce an up and coming 2019 recruit.
Oh well, best of luck in the future Kwity.
