TE Drew McQuarrie Commits To Eagles, And Where Does BC Stand With QB Targets

NCAA Football: Pinstripe Bowl-Boston College vs Penn State Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

As we reported yesterday, New Hampshire recruit Drew McQuarrie has committed to the Eagles, but not as a QB the position he is listed as on most recruiting services. Instead according to McQuarrie, the Eagles have recruited him as a tight end. He has good size and frame (6’5 215 lbs) to be the type of tight end BC needs moving forward. He is the 2nd tight end in this class, joining San Diego native Patrick Brown who committed in the spring. You can check out McQuarrie’s HUDL below

With McQuarrie going to tight end, that leaves the Eagles with room for one more QB in the class of 2017 if they choose to go that route. They have a few options moving forward, and some of their most recent movement have been with QB’s, so it appears that if they get interest they will be taking one of the following:

  • CJ Lewis (CT) 3*: A dual threat QB from the same high school as Brandon Sebastian. He was just offered on Wednesday. Given his twitter convo’s, he seems to be very interested in Boston College. Currently holds offers from Buffalo and lesser schools such as UConn.
  • Austin Burton (MA/FL) 2*: A very interesting quarterback to watch, he is possibly the highest rated QB in Massachusetts, but here’s the kicker, he’s moving to Florida. Last season he played in Newton, but over the spring he announced he will be playing in the Sunshine State for his senior year. Will be interesting to see how he adjusts to a completely different level of play.
  • Tate Haynes (CA) NR: No other current offers for this dual threat QB. He was offered a while ago, not sure if BC would want him at QB.
  • Jack Sears (CA) 4*: Would love to see him at BC, but the kid has a ton of big time offers at this point. Probably a real long shot.
