Good luck to DW!

NCAA Football: Boston College at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

About a week ago, graduate student Darius Wade announced that he would be transferring from Boston College. On Friday he made it official where he would be heading:

This makes all the sense in the world for Wade. First off, he had every right to move on from the Eagles. Clearly he was going to back up Anthony Brown next season, and he deserves to start if he can find the right opportunity. Then on top of that he gets to play for his hometown team? Win all around.

Wade finished an up and down career after being the first quarterback brought in by Steve Addazio. He was given a chance in 2015, but suffered a catastrophic injury against the Florida State Seminoles, and then last season he was relegated to back up duty behind graduate transfer Patrick Towles. It looked like 2017 was going to be his year, but he was beat out in summer camp by Brown who play a majority of the season. Wade however had his moments, bringing the Eagles to victories over Syracuse and UConn, while also playing in the Pinstripe Bowl against the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Best of luck to Darius next year, we appreciated his hard work and dedication to the team.
