Name: Joe Vitiello

Position: Tight End

Number: #91

2017 Stats: BC has a lot of talent at tight end and Joseph Vitiello may find his spot this year. He seems to be more of a blocking tight end, so you may see him on some of the jumbo packages that Addazio likes to play. He probably won’t wow us with catches like Tommy Sweeney, Chris Garrison and Korab Idrizi, but he probably will be crucial to an effective power running game.

2016 Stats: Vitiello moved over to tight end before the start of last season, according to his biography on BC Eagles.com he played in two games but did not have any catches.

2015 Stats: Did not see any game action.

2014 Stats: Redshirted

2013 Stats (HS): Earned 2012 all-conference honors and was invited to play in the 2013 New York vs. New Jersey All-Star Game...injured after 20 plays in 2013 but not before amassing seven tackles, one tackle for loss, and one fumble recovery...recorded 45 tackles, six tackles for loss, two sacks, one fumble recovery and eight quarterback hurries in 2012.

How'd He Get Here: A three star defensive lineman out of New Jersey, Joe was recruited byBuffalo, UMass, South Florida, Temple, Tulane and lesser schools like UConn.

On Why He Chose Boston College: "I can picture myself living there and just being there," Vitiello said. "As far as the team, they were very welcoming and the coaching staff thought very highly of me and liked the way I played."
