Wednesday was national signing day, and Boston College football had a bunch of recruits, new and old, sign their letters of intent to join the football program in Chestnut Hill. Alongside an influx of transfers in recent days, Jeff Hafley and his staff have slowly put together some pieces of their new roster.
Syair Torrence is a wide receiver out of Syracuse, NY. He’s a three-star recruit and figures to be a threat in the slot at 5’11” and 195 lbs. He also received offers from Michigan State, Michigan, Pitt, Syracuse, Rutgers, and others.
Ryan Boultwood is a tight end out of La Verne, CA. He’s a three-star recruit and actually a signee out of JuCo, making him an interesting early playing target at a position of need for BC.
Jadon Lafontant is an OL pickup for the Eagles, this one coming locally from Greenwich, CT. Lafontant is a 3-star prospect who plays on the interior offensive line and had offers from Kentucky, Pitt, Duke, Syracuse, and others. Hafley’s staff is clearly prioritizing OL depth as they prepare to lose star guard Christian Mahogany and look to avoid a depleted position group like they faced in 2022.
Ashton McShane is a cornerback out of McKinney, TX. He’s another 3-star recruit, this one coming on the defensive side for a team that struggled to defend the pass last season. Jeff Hafley has picked up some talent in that part of the defense to try to shore up his area of expertise.
Cedric Lott Jr. is another WR recruit for the Eagles, who have been leveraging the success of Zay Flowers to pick up some threats in the receiving corps. Lott is a 3-star prospect who has received offers from Texas Tech, Memphis, North Texas, and UTSA, so Jeff Hafley is searching far and wide across the country to find some help on the outside.
Pape Abdoulaye Sy is a native of Senegal and comes to BC from the NFL Academy in London. He is not rated on any major recruiting website, so it’s tough to tell how big of a pickup this is, but his physical profile certainly seems promising at 6’7” and 301 lbs.
Jayzen Flint is a defensive end prospect with a great name out of Philadelphia, PA. The 3-star prospect is 6’3” and 225 lbs, built well to be a presence on the defensive line in the ACC. He received offers from Nebraska, Temple, Army, and UMass.
Charlie Conmella is another 3-star recruit, a defensive back out of Westwood, MA. Hafley is keeping this local kid home after he received offers from from some FCS schools, Dartmouth, Holy Cross, and Penn.
Turbo Richard committed a while ago and finally signs his letter of intent today. Richard is a ‘24 running back out of Rock Hill, South Carolina. At 5’9”, 192 pounds, Richard is a solid three-star prospect. He has listed great speed, running a 4.48 40, and ran for over 2000 yards this past season. He also received offers from Wake Forest, James Madison, App State, UConn, and others.
Johnathan Montague could be the Boston College quarterback of the future. The 3-star North Carolina product will have to compete with Thomas Castellanos and Jacobe Robinson, the redshirt freshman who impressed at the Spring Game. The 6’2” QB also received offers from Temple, Arkansas State, Albany State, and a few others.
Judah Pruitt is yet another OL prospect picked up by Hafley’s staff. He’s a 3-star out of New Jersey and a very big presence at 6’5” and 315 lbs. Rutgers, Syracuse, and Temple, among others, were after him, but Boston College was able to snag him for their much needed offensive line.
Kemori Dixon is a 2024 signee who will also add to Jeff Hafley’s secondary as a 6’1” safety. He’s a 3-star prospect out of Virginia at an important position that’s coming to BC after receiving offers from Penn State, Louisville, Wake Forest, Syracuse, James Madison, and others.
