Boston College Football Recruiting: Eagles Land 2018 DB Elijah Jones

Another big get for Addazio and Co.

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

Boston College’s streak of solid recruits continued on Friday as the Eagles apparently landed a New York defensive back:

Elijah Jones, a 3* recruit out of the Bronx, NY is a great get for the Eagles. He is considered the #65 Athlete, #7 in NY, and #735 recruit in the country. Jones’s offer sheet included Maryland, Rutgers, Purdue, Temple, Stony Brook, Albany and lesser schools like UConn. He received all of his major offers in the past month, showing that Jones recruitment had been heating up lately. He is the fourth recruit from New York, joining Matt Valecce, Kyiev Bennermon, and Tyler Days.

The 6’2 Jones continues a nice run at potential defensive backs for the Eagles. In the past week or so BC has landed Aaron Gethers and Tyler Days, to go along with Evan Stewart who committed weeks ago. Of course many of these players could change positions when they get on campus.

Jones HUDL page has him running a 4.73 40. You can check out his highlights below. Welcome to the Heights!
