On today’s roundtable we look at a Boston College Eagles football player that may not be a name that everyone recognizes, but will be by the end of the season. Check out our discussions below, and leave your predictions in the comment section.
AJ: C.J. Lewis: A tall lengthy wide receiver, he could jump up on the depth chart by the end of the season. We started to see him get more and more snaps in 2017, but a nice tall target is exactly what Anthony Brown needs. Going into 2019 we could be talking about two dynamic wide receivers with Lewis and Kobay White.
Matt: Max Richardson. The junior linebacker played great last year alongside Connor Strachan before both got injured. If he can be healthy for the entire year, the linebacker group could be a massive plus for a defense that also includes Zach Allen up front and Lukas Denis in the defensive backfield.
Rich: Ryan Betro: The freshman defensive tackle is another product of the recently surging Lawrence Academy pipeline. Betro’s a big, tough kid who can add some depth to the interior of the defense. He was the #3 ranked recruit in Massachusetts coming out of high school, and he has the potential to make an immediate impact as a freshman.
Peter: Elijah Robinson. When Robinson first committed to the heights as a quarterback, I was so excited to see this kid’s potential. His highlight tape from high school showed sheer athleticism at the QB position and he had a phenomenal career prior to college where he garnered 6,431 all purpose yards and 84 touchdowns in just two seasons. Yet, as not out of the BC football norm, he was converted to a WR and has not had much of an effect in his three years at BC. Granted he did snag a few passes his Sophomore year and played well on special teams, but I don’t think he has really had to opportunity to really show himself. With this being a year where I think Addazio is going to try to rely less on the run play and try to attack more through the air, I expect Robinson’s name to show up on the stat sheet more so than expected and for him to have a very fruitful year.
