Boston College just picked up a major commitment from cornerback Clinton Burton Jr, who flipped from his original commitment to the University of Florida. Burton, a four star prospect from St. Frances Academy in Maryland, is among the highest rated commitment in school history. The 6-0, 172 pound corner is the #20 ranked prospect in the class for the position. Burton has been committed to Florida since September, but Coach Aazaar and Hafley swept in to flip the Maryland native. He was recently rated a preseason first team all-American by MaxPreps and had offers from the likes of Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, and many others. Suffice to say, he is an enormous get for the Eagles.
