The 2017 recruiting class is winding down, but Boston College is still on the trail trying to land some last minute commits. Last night Mission Viejo, California quarterback Matt McDonald reported on Twitter that he has received an offer from the Eagles.

McDonald is intriguing prospect for the Eagles because he could be a really strong buy low candidate. Though he only has one other offer Cornell, he currently attends Mission Viejo a southern California powerhouse that has also produced Mark Sanchez and Jordan Palmer, both NFL quarterbacks. He transferred from Mater Dei, another California powerhouse, where he was stuck on the depth chart behind 2019 QB JT Daniels, who already has offers from Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame etc.
According to a report, Matt was visited at home on Monday night, with his father Paul (another NFL quarterback) in attendance as well. McDonald threw for 2,704 yards and 39 touchdowns in his senior year, which probably is what brought him to Boston College’s attention. According to his HUDL film (take that with a grain of salt), he also runs a 4.7 40. He will be visiting Chestnut Hill this weekend, so we could be getting news soon.
Is he the real deal? Could he be a real solid late cycle snag for Scot Loeffler and Steve Addazio? Check out his HUDL film below and judge for yourself.
