Analyzing The Current Boston College Football Class of 2018

What does BC football’s most recent class look like so far?

NCAA Football: Maine at Boston College Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Boston College football is in the midst of a solid run of recruits, as quarterback Matt Valecce, offensive tackle Finn Dirstine, safety Evan Stewart and DT Ryan Betro have all committed in the past week. Where does this class stack up, and what needs still need to be addressed.

First Thoughts: The initial first few recruits were a little underwhelming in terms of their offers and star power, but recently BC has been able to pull in some legit names with some nice offers. It’s interesting that to this point BC hasn’t landed a commit outside of the Northeast area, as it appears that Paul Pasqualoni, and Anthony Campanile have been killing it the hardest so far outside of Massachusetts.

Class Ratings: Rivals has BC at 37 right now. That would be a nice jump for the Eagles if they could maintain that give that they have been in the 50’s and 60’s over the past few years. Now some of that may be due to the volume of recruits (which honestly isn’t that high right now), but they certainly are going to need to get a few more highly sought after recruits if they want this number to stay consistent.

Needs: The Class I believe will still be a rather solid sized class, around 20. Looking at the current class, I still believe BC has room for a running back, a linebacker or two, another offensive lineman, a defensive back, and a wide receiver. Have to imagine that they are set at quarterback now that they have two.

Offers: If you follow me on Twitter, @BCHysteria, you can follow along as I retweet the latest offers, they are going out fast and furiously right now. Shameless self promotion I know.
