Until this point Boston College had no football commitments, one of a handful of ACC schools to hold this dubious honor. That all changed yesterday when Providence, Rhode Island wide receiver Jehlani Galloway pledged to Steve Addazio and the Eagles (per his Twitter and his coaches Twitter)
Galloway, who plays for Classical High School is currently not ranked, but holds offers from Army, UMass and Maine. He comes in at 6’2 175lbs, so good size for a wide receiver, and according to his HUDL film he has an unofficial 40 time of 4.53 which is very good for a wide receiver and could give Boston College some speed at a position that they have historically struggled to attract attention at.
Jehlani is a solid start for the Eagles. I know the first thing people are going to dissect (and rightfully so) is his offer sheet. Just remember that Rhode Island is a historically under recruited area, but there are gems there that eventually catch major schools attention. It was only last year that defensive end Kwity Paye was recruited by BC, had no offers, and then blew up and ended up with Michigan. Not saying the same will happen with Galloway, but his offer sheet is pretty par for the course for a Rhode Island recruit this early in the process.
You can check out his HUDL film below. Welcome to the Heights Jehlani!
(Coming up later this afternoon: Boston College receives a second commit! A defensive end/tight end from Lawrence Academy)
