Crucial Visit Weekend at BC

McKenzie Mathews

While there will not be a large number of prospects on hand this weekend, BC will learn the status of a number of key recruits in the class of 2006 in the near future.

Weekend Visitors

Linebacker Darius Bagan from Queen of Peace HS in New Jersey will be on hand this weekend. Bagan, despite an early verbal to Boston College, has received heavy interest from the University of Miami and could potentially visit "the U" next weekend. BC will likely push for a re-affirmation of Bagan's commitment. If he takes a trip to Miami, BC could lose out on one of its better recruits in this class.

Defensive end McKenzie Mathews from Syracuse, NY, will also be on hand, and this is BC's big chance to play catch-up to the two schools who lead for Mathews. Earlier this week he stated that Pittsburgh and Michigan were his two leaders, but BC doesn't trail those schools by much. BC has made Mathews a primary target and a good visit could put the Eagles in front. With a visit to Syracuse scheduled for next weekend, Mathews' decision might not come until close to signing day.

Since the Eagles are close to striking out on Wesley Lyons, BC's staff has set their sights on another 6'4" wide receiver. His name is Justin Jarvis and although he is not in the Scout database I have heard good things about his on-field play. He may turn out to be a sleeper but many schools have stayed away because of academics. If he gains admission to BC, the Eagles will likely offer him a scholarship.

Other Notes

The Eagles are waiting for RB Brent Carter to decide between Penn State, Rutgers and the Eagles. Once he makes his decision, BC will move on Jared Bradley. Expect the Eagles to drop Bradley if Carter commits, however if Carter goes elsewhere and Bradley gets through admissions he will likely be offered a scholarship.

The BC staff would like to take another offensive lineman and perhaps a long snapper to round out this class. Look for a few unfamiliar names on the class list come February 1st. Recommended Stories
