Boston College Football Recruiting: LB Christian Lezzer Sticking With The Eagles

Lezzer is sticking with BC.


With National Signing Day a little over a week away, college football staffs are scrambling to fill the remaining spots to round out their 2014 recruiting classes. Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood made a late push to flip Boston College linebacker commit Christian Lezzer, offering him an opportunity to win Big Ten championships at Rutgers just 10 days ago. While Lezzer gave Flood's offer some thought, he's decided to stay committed to the Eagles.

"I'm staying with BC because I feel extremely comfortable with the coaching staff, and the current commits," Lezzer said. "I have a great relationship with them. I also believe that there are very few schools in the country that has what BC offers both athletically and academically."

In addition to BC, the 6-foot-1, 220-pound linebacker from Clearfield (Pa.) Area High claims offers from Arizona, Bucknell, Kent State, Rutgers, Temple and Towson. He's a consensus three-star recruit, ranked as the 28th best prospect out of Pennsylvania by Rivals.

The Eagles' 2014 recruiting class is currently 27 strong and ranked 37th nationally by (8th in the ACC). Five of the 27 recruits enrolled early and will count towards last year's class total which allows the program to go over the 25/year max.
