BC is right fit for LB Stewart

The Boston College football team cashed in on another homegrown talent

this weekend.


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

decision.


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

ESPN.com.


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.
