The Boston College Eagles football team lost out on a quarterback recruit on Monday, but they did not miss on a Michigan running back. Richard Wilson, a 2014 commitment from Beverly Hills, MI (Country Day), has become the 21st recruit in Steve Addazio’s first full class.
Wilson is rated two stars by Rivals, which shows his other offer list to be MAC-heavy with Ball State, Central Michigan, Eastern Illinois, Eastern Michigan, and Western Michigan. According to Heights 24/7, he was offered on May 17 and camped with the Eagles a few weeks later on June 9. Al Washington was his primary recruiter.
He attended the Nike Football Training Camp in April, where he was ranked 35th out of 329 high school athletes. He ran a 40-yard dash of 4.68 seconds with a 4.26 shuttle time. Wilson also had a 32.2-inch vertical jump and a power ball toss of 36.
One might like the 40-time to be a bit better, but Wilson has won praise for his talent and many, including Boston College’s coaching staff, believe the potential is there. His video highlights reveal a tough runner, at 5-11 and 210 pounds, who worked hard for extra yardage and was hard to take down. View the available video below:
With the commitment, Wilson is the second running back in the class alongside Marcus Outlow, the first young man to join the 2014 class.
We welcome him to Boston College.
