Boston College Football Recruiting: RB Sherman Alston Commits to Eagles

NCAA Football: Maryland at Temple

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a while since someone decided to Be A Dude, but on Thursday afternoon, Boston College got its 22nd recruit for the 2014 football entry class.

That player is Sherm Alston, a running back from Saint Joseph Regional High School in Montvale, New Jersey. His verbal commitment came today and was confirmed by Shawn Brown of Rivals.


Alston’s other offers were all at the FCS level, but Brown continued with this compact scouting report on Alston:


He seems like he could be a diamond-in-the-rough type player if that report holds true, and his usefulness to the Eagles is obvious as he’s another running back. The current Boston College Eagles may have to play all of their true freshmen as the depth situation is dire, and the coaches intend to remedy that by bringing in (at least) three more in 2014; Alston is now the third.

Alston’s testing results show that he ran a 4.45 in a recent high school scouting combine, so speed is definitely an asset of his.

We welcome Alston to Boston College.
