Analysis: Haynes is a very interesting recruit for a few reasons. His father Michael is possibly one of the greatest defensive backs in the history of the NFL, playing for both the Patriots and Raiders. Secondly, there were rumblings that Tate was on the verge of being poached by San Diego State, a school that allegedly wanted him to play quarterback. But in the end Boston College apparently gave him the opportunity to try out at QB (he’s listed in the Addazio video as both QB/DB), so we shall see where he fits best in Chestnut Hill.
