Boston College landed their second quarterback of the class of 2018 when New York quarterback Matt Valecce committed to the Eagles per his Twitter page:

Valecce, a 6’5 quarterback out of Fordham Prep in the Bronx, is considered pro-style. According to his 247 page he already has offers from Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Brown. Valecce finished his junior season with 2,628 yards passing, 27 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. He currently does not have a rating on either Rivals or 247, but given his offer sheet I would imagine he will be a 3* when the recruiting services release their ratings on him.
This is the second quarterback that Steve Addazio has taken in this class, joining New Jersey QB Johnny Langan, who committed earlier this week. Going into 2018 this would give the Eagles five scholarship quarterbacks and John Fadule (not sure if he is scholarship or not). Just based on his films it appears that Valecce is more polished in his game right now than Langan, but there still is one more season where both kids could learn and improve.
