Boston College football landed a commit on Tuesday evening, as Orange, NJ linebacker Paul Theobald chose the Eagles:

Theobald, a 3* linebacker who plays at Seton Hall Prep also held offers from Rutgers, UCF and Northwestern. An inside linebacker, as a junior Theobald tallied 111 tackles, 3.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery for a touchdown and a safety. Impressive numbers, especially in New Jersey, a state that has produced solid college football talent.

His primary recruiter Anthony Campanile has really delivered lately due to his strong connections to the New Jersey high school scene. Campanile went to Twitter to express his excitement as well:

If you want to see what kind of player BC is getting, here is highlights against St. Peter's Prep, a very good program Theobald is the first linebacker taken in this recruiting class. Welcome to the Heights Paul!
