"I always want to thank my head coach, Nunzio Campanile, for being there every step of the way throughout this entire process. My teammates for pushing me day in and day out, showing me what hard work is truly all about to get to this point. And last but certainly not least my parents for their sacrifices to make this all come to fruition. So at this time I want to officially commit to BOSTON COLLEGE !! #GoEagles"

Langan a 3* recruit according to Rivals, is a big physical quarterback with a frame similar to Patrick Towles. As a junior he currently is already 6’3 and 220lbs, which would make him the tallest quarterback on the BC roster already. Langan was highly sought after in the Northeast, already receiving offers from Syracuse, Temple, Rutgers and Buffalo.
Langan’s stats at B.C were as following (again according to NJ.com)
“In his first full season as Bergen Catholic's starter last year, Langan threw for 1,998 yards, 19 TDs and 11 INTs. The Crusaders reached the Non-Public Group 4 state semifinals before falling to St. Peter's Prep, 28-7.
As a sophomore in 2015, while filling in for an injured Jarrett Guarantano, Langan went 4-1 as a starter, throwing for 688 yards and 7 TDs to just 2 INTs. He has eight rushing TDs the past two seasons, after arriving at Bergen Catholic as a wide receiver. His first TD of his career was a 29-yard reception against national power IMG Academy in 2015.”
As a junior he threw for 1998 yards, with 19 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He also rushed the ball 125 times for 198 yards and four touchdowns. When he gets to campus he will have to battle with E.J. Perry, and Anthony Brown, given that he probably wouldn’t start as a true freshman over Darius Wade.
