The offers have been going out fast and furiously lately for Boston College, but it's been a while since they've received a commitment. That all changed today, as 2017 tight end Devan Lawson verbally committed to Steve Addazio and the Eagles:

Lawson, a 6'5 tight end out of Spring Valley, New York isn't ranked yet by any of the major recruiting services. According to his 247 page he currently holds an offer from Buffalo, while running a 4.7 which is pretty solid for a tight end. Looking at his film he appears to be more of a receiving tight end than one that blocks, which is good because BC needs help at that position. According to his Twitter page he was at Boston College recently, when the coaching staff were holding visits for perspective juniors.
This is the second commit for the Class of 2017, joining Kwity Paye, a defensive end from Rhode Island who committed to the Eagles in the fall.
