National Signing Day: Linebacker Kevin Cohee Commits To Boston College

A local linebacker that looks to make a difference in the future.

Kevin Cohee

Hometown: West Roxbury, MA
High School: Roxbury Latin
Position: Inside Linebacker
Height: 6-foot-3
40: 4.7
Weight: 240 lbs.
Twitter: N/A


Rankings: Rivals 3* (6 state), Scout 3* (27 position), ESPN 2* (68 overall, 60 position, 10 state), 247Sports 3* (83 overall, 53 position, 10 state). Selected Boston College over UMass and UConn. Recruited by Kevin Lempa and Frank Leonard.

Strengths: A big boy in a man's body, Cohee has the size to be a physical presence in the middle of the field. It's hard to diagnose how effective he will be against non-Massachusetts high school competition, but I like what I saw in the film. With some good coaching and the right scheme he could be a lumbering hard hitting middle linebacker.

Realistic Outlook: Sean Duggan is projected to be the starter at middle linebacker in 2014, but there is a giant void behind him in the depth chart. BC plays the 4-3, which limits the opportunities for inside linebackers to see playing time. However, I expect Cohee's learning curving to be a little steep as he appeared to be playing against dwarfs in his high school league, but could he be a starter come 2015? That'll be an interesting development to watch.
