Boston College Eagles recruiting in the South is picking up; defensive back/athlete Cam Seward of Atlanta is heading north in 2014.Seward was one of two Westminster graduates to come to Boston College in the 2014 class: his teammate, Sam Schmal, is also shifting residence to Chestnut Hill for the next four years or so.
In high school, he listed himself as playing both linebacker and wide receiver, though Boston College considers him to be a defensive back. To make sure none of us are on the same page, the school recruited him as a very generic athlete.
All that means is that Cam Seward can provide assistance to the Eagles in a number of different ways, if necessary. Amongst the other schools who sought his services — and it is a respectable list — include Cal, Cincinnati, NC State, Mississippi State, and West Virginia.
Ultimately, Seward chose Boston College, and his friend Schmal joined up about a month later. Seward might well have a bright future on the Heights, but does that future begin on the field in 2014?
Cam Seward: Fast Facts

- Hometown: Dunwoody, Georgia
- High School: The Westminster Schools, Atlanta, GA
- Measurements: 6-foot-1, 200 lb.
- Class year at 2014 opener: Freshman

Cam Seward: 2013 Season (HS)
- Did not play in 2013; injury

One would have to imagine that Seward is healed and ready to go; it does say something beneficial about him to know that several major-conference schools still wanted him despite the fact that he did not play at all in 2013.
Depending on where Boston College decides to place Seward — most likely on defense — he may or may not get to play in 2014. The gut feeling at this point is that he will be listed as a defensive back as the Eagles indicated he would be on signing day, and furthermore that he will redshirt.
