It's been a quiet few days in the world of Boston College football recruiting. There hasn't been any new commitments in the past two weeks, only a slew of new offers, and recruits naming their favorites etc. I have been scouring Twitter for updates on visits, offers and the like.
Anthony Brown Names His Top 5.
As mentioned in a Fanshot earlier this week, 3* 2016 quarterback Anthony Brown has named his Top 5 schools. Posted to his Twitter account, Brown who attends St. John's Vianney in Holmdel New, Jersey named Boston College along with Northwestern, Temple, Wake Forest and Syracuse. Depending on what BC does with Jeff Smith, grabbing a quarterback in 2015 will be a must. They currently have three on their roster (Elijiah Robinson, Troy Flutie and Darius Wade). For depth purposes you want to have at least four quarterbacks. Another option could be D.J. Daniels, a quarterback from Wilson North Carolina, who talked to me about visiting Boston College this summer.
Tuesday's Bonanza Of Offers
If you checked out Twitter on Tuesday evening it was the clear the Boston College coaching staff was busy with offers. The following recruits received offers on Tuesday evening (according to their personal or coaches Twitter accounts)
Owen Pappoe- A freshman athlete out of Loganville, Georgia. According to his Rivals page he does not have any other offers, which is not surprising because he is a freshman.
Jesse Meylert 2016- 2* Offensive Tackle from Alexandria Virginia. According this his Rivals page he currently holds offers from ECU, Harvard, Old Dominion, Northwestern, Pittsburgh, Temple, Vanderbilt, Wisconsin and Wake. Pretty impressive list of offers there.
Jamar Watson- 2016- No Current Ranking- Linebacker from Forestville, Maryland. According to his Rivals page he currently holds offers from Kentucky, Miami of Ohio, and Old Dominion.
Guide To Recruiting Cycles
If you are like me and want to learn more about how the recruiting schedule runs, Bud Elliott of SB Nation did a really nice break down on the schedule and how the periods impact contact with recruits. Check it out, he gives specific dates, and lays out what each period means both for the school and the recruit. Right now we are currently in a "evaluation period" which is described as the following:
Considerably more restrictive than the contact period in one key way: off campus face-to-face contact is not permitted. That means no home visits. Coaches can still visit a prospect's school. Visits to schools are ostensibly for the purpose of evaluation. Prospects can visit colleges and receive written and electronic communication. Many scholarship offers go out in this period.
