The Boston College football team cashed in on another homegrown talent
Connecticut native, Graham Stewart, gave a verbal commitment to join
coach Spaziani and the Eagles on the field next season.
Stewart was a hot commodity on the recruiting trail as of late. The
three star recruit had already received offers from Syracuse, Uconn
and Temple while also garnering serious interest from Florida and Iowa
in recent weeks.
In the end, Stewart attributed his decision to the school’s reputation
and the high level of competition in the ACC.
"I've always been a fan of the ACC, and from the start I fell in love
with BC and the culture there," Stewart said after revealing his
Stewart also cited location as a key in deciding on the Boston based
school, saying: "I wanted to stay close to home and my mom is smiling
from ear to ear. BC isn't far from where I live, but it's far enough.”
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker is rated as a three-star recruit by
Rivals.com and is Connecticut’s top-rated player according to
The Eagles should be more than happy to have another new addition to
their 2011 recruiting class. Stewart should add some much needed help
in the pass rush, especially with the departure of star linebacker
Mark Herzlich after this season.
The big, physical linebacker has shown great agility and skill
throughout his career at Xavier high school (CT). He followed up a
breakout sophomore campaign with a terrific junior season recording
100 tackles along with three sacks and one interception.
He should continue to improve during his senior season.
I look for him to be a big addition to the Eagles future at the
linebacker spot and he should be ready to make an impact once he steps
on campus come next fall.
