Name: Travis Levy
Position: Running Back
Hometown: Olney, Maryland
High School: Sherwood High School
2016 Stats: Levy, a freshman, obviously did not play last year. He did, however, enroll early for spring practices. He played quite a bit in the spring game, recording 17 carries for 67 yards.
Projections: Despite being a great recruit, Levy comes into a very crowded backfield. Jon Hilliman and Davon Jones return to the backfield, and the gem of 2017 recruiting class, AJ Dillon, enters the fold. Levy’s spring ball experience might get him snaps though, so if he does play it would likely be an occasional change of pace back with a smattering of kick returns.
Over/Under: 25 carries. Steve Addazio has said that he’s gonna rely pretty heavily on his veteran backfield, so Levy getting serious game time carries seems unlikely.
How’d He Get Here: A three star recruit, Levy had six offers from Army, Buffalo, UMass, Toledo, and Vanderbilt. He tore up the DC metro area all four years of his highschool career, which you can read about in the Washington Post. He was one of the first members of this year’s class and was a firm Eagle all the way through the process.
Below is his HUDL, in which you can really see his balance, speed, and vision.
Quotables from ‘Daz:
"I'm not going to split them up that much. Jon Hilliman had a phenomenal, phenomenal spring. He had the best spring he's had since he's been here. Davon had a lot of productivity. Rich Wilson and the young Travis (Levy) - we need them all. What you learn in this conference is you need all those backs, but to play all of them equally or something like that, I wouldn't say that's our intent. It'll work itself out. In the course of a game, you need to play with a few, not necessarily equally distributed, but you need a few (backs). I think it's encouraging that we lost two really great guys, but we were able to have - I think you can get a good look at some guys that can be very productive." - Addazio on BC’s stable of running backs.
