Better Know An Eagle: #8 Quarterback E.J. Perry IV

Probably won’t play in 2017, but EJ Perry is a name worth noting.

Boston College Helmet

Name: E.J. Perry IV

Position: Quarterback

Number: 8

Year: Freshman

Height: 6’2”

Weight: 195

Hometown: Andover, MA

High School: Andover High School

2016 Stats: Perry threw for 3,398 for 47 touchdowns and rushed for 1,006 yards and 13 touchdowns for Andover High School.

Projections: Perry has to be considered third on the depth chart this year, behind Darius Wade and Anthony Brown and possibly behind John Fadule as well. He played a little in the spring game, but I would imagine that Steve Addazio and Scot Loeffler would like to red shirt him and save a year of eligibility unless they are forced to play him.

Over/Under: Three positive summer practice reports or three positive media reports where television analysts talk about the bright future of the BC program.

How’d He Get Here: A two star quarterback from Andover, EJ had claimed offers from schools such as Brown, Yale, UMass, Monmouth, Bryant and Ohio amongst others. He committed to the Eagles in April of 2016, and is already on campus practicing with the team.
