Boston College Football Recruiting: LB Jimmy Martin Commits To Eagles

The second dude of the day, and #18th of the class.

As soon as we posted that Davon Jones had committed to Boston College, the Eagles landed their second commitment of the day as Florida linebacker Jimmy Martin has committed to BC:

Martin, a 5'11 207 lb linebacker is considered a 3* recruit by Rivals, and his main recruiter is Todd Fitch. He held offers from Cincinnati, Duke, South Florida, and a bevy of lower tier schools. Earlier this week it was reported as well that Indiana was on the verge of offering him. According to his HUDL page he claims to run a 4.5 40.

Interestingly an Orlando Sentinel article mentions that while he was recruited as a linebacker, Addazio may be more inclined to move his position to something like fullback. That is important news to consider especially if BC wants to stay in the running for some of the bigger name LB's in the Class of 2015.

The other interesting piece of news in this recruitment is that Martin is graduating early, which may mean that his scholarship won't count against the 2015 recruiting class number of 25. He is at least the second recruit that has said that he will be coming to BC early.  Again this is great for BC as it gives them more flexibility to continue to go out and get more recruits to fill their roster.  There is a possibility that in two years, Addazio and Co will have 55+ guys on a roster of 85 that are "his guys".
