A big time graduate transfer is landing at Boston College. Jaiden Lars-Woodbey, former Florida State Seminole defensive back, announced his decision today. A former freshman All-American and a three-year starter, he’ll provide an immediate impact for next season’s Eagles.
Lars-Woodbey was a highly touted four-star recruit coming into college. He’s 6-1, 221 pounds and originally from California. In that stellar freshman campaign, he would post 58 tackles, including 4.5 for loss, one sack, eight pass breakups, three hurries, and a forced fumble. He suffered a season-ending knee injury in 2019 four games into the season. This past season, as a redshirt sophomore, he would go on to start six games and record 28 tackles. Although those outputs were much lower than his star freshman season, he moved to linebacker midway through FSU’s season and opted out at the start of December. He’s a hard-hitter that projects to play defensive back in Jeff Hafley’s defense. Woodbey could have up to two years of eligibility remaining. Appearing on the Honor Roll each semester, Woodbey intends to get his Masters at BC.
BC received a stellar return on a handful of transfers last season, and Jeff Hafley and co. are just as active this season.
Welcome to the Heights, Jaiden!
