Boston College landed another 2018 recruit today, as Maryland running back David Bailey according to his Twitter:
Bailey, a 3* recruit according to 247 is ranked the 73rd best running back in the upcoming recruiting class. The North Caroline student has some solid offers as well, holding claimed offers from Syracuse, Marshall, Rutgers, and Virginia. The 6’0 225 lb Bailey, unofficially visited Boston College back in March. According to his HUDL page he runs a 4.66 40, not necessarily blazing speed, but given his size he may be more of a power back.
Running back is a position of interest for the Eagles, as they will be losing Jon Hilliman at the end of the 2018 season. They have some depth with Travis Levy, Davon Jones and A.J. Dillon all around for at least the next three seasons, but given that Addazio loves to run the ball, additional depth is going to be key. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Eagles go for another running back in this class.
