In what has to have been the busiest day of Boston College Eagles football roster movement in months, the program lost two active players but gained two new recruits. The second Tuesday commitment for the 2014 class came from Joe Vitiello.
Vitiello is a tight end, defensive end, and defensive tackle from Somerville, NJ who was rated three stars by Rivals and 24/7. His other BCS offers were Connecticut, Temple, and South Florida. Boston College offered Vitiello on May 10, securing his commitment just a few weeks later. The Immaculata rising senior is 6-foot-5 and weighs 255 pounds.
The 2014 class is now up to thirteen recruits, including both Mike Knoll and Vitiello. Rivals has now increased Boston College’s standing to the 14th-best recruiting class in the country for the upcoming signing year, while 24/7 has the Eagles at #19. Scout only acknowledges ten commits and is decidedly less impressed with a #40 ranking, but they would appear to be in the minority.
With still over half a year to go until signing day, Boston College’s 2014 recruiting class is now almost as big as their 2013 class was, though several commits are still being aggressively targeted by other programs.
