The Boston College Eagles have landed another commitment for their class of 2019. Today on Twitter, offensive lineman Maurice Smith (Miami, FL) committed to the Eagles:
Smith, an offensive guard, also held offers from the Mississippi State Bulldogs, Indiana Hoosiers, Marshall Thundering Herd, and a variety of other mid level offers. The 6’2 280 pounder is a 3* according to both Rivals and 247, and is the 27th ranked offensive guard in the upcoming class. He was recruited by running backs coach Brian White, and offensive line coach Phil Trautwein.
Maurice Smith is the third offensive lineman taken in this class, joining Connecticut’s Jack Conley (OT), and fellow OT Blestim Rustemi of New Jersey. Given the size of this class, this must mean that the Eagles aren’t getting coveted OL JD Duplain, who has exploded with offers over the past month. From sources I’ve talked to, it seems like he could be heading to Indiana or Michigan State. Even if Smith was Option B, this is still an excellent pick up. Boston College has hardly ever been able to get recruits like this as a secondary option.
Welcome to the Heights Maurice!
