Boston College has struck twice this week, adding commitments from two different 2019 recruits.
The first came earlier this week when offensive lineman Blerim Rustemi, a New Jersey offensive lineman, committed to the Eagles on Twitter:
Rustemi, a 3* recruit according to 247, held a bevy of offers including Virginia Cavaliers, Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Army, East Carolina, Temple and lesser schools like UConn. This was a quick turnaround for the DePaul Catholic star, as he had just camped at Boston College this weekend and offered on Sunday. Word on the street is that Rustemi is a physical and hard nosed player that will fit in well with the system Steve Addazio has set up at Boston College.
The second commitment the Eagles received was from defensive end Izaiah Henderson, a 3* defensive end from Mater Dei Prep in New Jersey:
I’d like to thank God, my family, and my coaching staff who were behind be every step off the way. And I am extremely excited to say that I am COMMITTED to continuing to my academic and football careers at BOSTON COLLEGE! #Decidetofly @BCFootball @BCCoachJReid @Coach_Campanile pic.twitter.com/Okwl4FkrsJ— IzaiahHenderson (@Izaiah__77) June 7, 2018
Anthony Campanile showed he can bring in solid recruits again, as Henderson was also offered from Michigan State Spartans, Rutgers, the Syracuse Orange, Maryland, Purdue, UCF, Temple, Vanderbilt, West Virginia, and UVA. Henderson also has a teammate Shitta Sillah, a linebacker that Boston College is going after. You have to wonder if this commitment will help their case with the Sillah.
