Boston College Football Recruiting: DE Wyatt Ray Commits To Eagles

Another day, another recruit. This time it's on the defensive line.

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Just in case you were worried that BC hadn't received another commitment in the past 24 hours, Steve Addazio took care of that this afternoon with commit #24! Today he received a verbal commitment from St. Thomas Aquinas (FL) defensive end Wyatt Ray.

Wyatt is a big get for the Eagles, as mentioned before BC was in need for some help on the defensive end and he fits that bill to a tee. A 3* recruit via Rivals, Ray has offers from Cincinnati, Florida International, Miami (OH), Syracuse, Wake Forest, Northern Illinois and Minnesota. Apparently he is on his way to Kentucky this weekend as well, so he may pick up an offer from the Wildcats as well. At 6'3 230lbs, he can run a 4.79 40, and seems like the caliber of defensive end the Eagles could use.

Another positive about snagging Ray is the possibility of other St. Thomas Aquinas recruits joining with him. There is a killer crew of possibilities that hopefully this commitment will open up including Jordan Scarlett (4* RB), Christopher Hart (LB with BC offer), Tyson Cisrow (DB with BC interest),  plus many others (you can see their recruits here).
