Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Kevin Kavalec

Position: Defensive End

Number: #93

Year: Junior

Height: 6-foot-2

Weight: 253 lbs.

Hometown: Middleberg Heights, OH

High School: St. Ignatius

2013 Stats: Kavalec was mostly the backup to Kasim Edebali in 2013 during his freshman year. Played in eight games last season. Kevin debuted against Florida State where he had one solo tackles against the Seminoles. Finished the season with three tackles.

2014 Stats: Kavalec was second on the team with 40 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, and 3.5 sacks. His biggest game was against the Demon Deacons when he had ten tackles and two sacks against Wake Forest.


2015 Projections: What a year for Kavalec, who jumped from a backup in 2013, to one a solid pass rusher, and solid tackler. He continues to grow this summer at practice, catching the eyes and praise of his coaches. Fortunately for Kavalec there will be other ends to help out this year and give him rests when needed. Kavalec should be rotating throughout the season with ends such as Harold Landry, Malachi Moore, Evan Kelly, and Zach Allen.

How'd He Get Here: According to Rivals, Kevin was a 2* recruit that chose Boston College over claimed offer from Ohio. His primary recruiter was former offensive line coordinator Jim Bollman.

Uniform History: Steve Lubischer, a linebacker who played at BC and for the Dolphins, wore it; his son also can lay a pretty good hit as well. Kyle Geiselman, who was one of the players involved in the betting scandal, wore the number. Phil Mettling, a defensive end and starter, wore the number in the early 2000's. Keith Willis Jr. wore the number during his time at BC, where he was a backup defensive lineman in 2005 & 2006. Bryan Murray, a defensive tackle, wore it in 2010.
