Quarterback/wide receiver Troy Flutie officially signed a national letter of intent to play for Boston College Eagles football in 2014 on Wednesday, National Signing Day.
He was the 15th recruit to verbally commit to the class, having committed to join Head Coach Steve Addazio’s program on June 12, 2013.
His is a familiar name at Boston College; Troy is the son of Darren Flutie and the nephew of Doug Flutie. Like his uncle, Troy Flutie was the quarterback for Natick High School. In 2013, he was named ESPNBoston.com’s Mr. Football, or the Massachusetts High School Player of the Year.
The recruiting agencies list Flutie as being anything from an athlete to a wide receiver, but sources involved with the program have indicated that he will come to the team as a quarterback. During Soaring to Glory’s interview with Doug Flutie in August, he indicated that he felt his nephew should get a shot to play quarterback as opposed to any other position.
The six-foot, 170 lb. Flutie is rated as a two-star recruit by Rivals and 247.
We welcome Troy, another member of the Flutie dynasty, to the Heights.
