Keeping Up With The 2013 BC Football Recruits

2 of 2

Andrew Isaacs
Tight end: Manchester, CT

Sometimes, it’s nice to get recruits with lots of stars next to their name. As of now, we’ve got one four-star (Rivals) newcomer, and it’s Andrew Isaacs (ESPN: 3-star). He is a tight end from Manchester, Connecticut.

Rivals lists him as the best recruit in the state of Connecticut for the 2013 class and in the top dozen of tight ends in the country, good enough to earn him a spot on the Rivals Top 250. His high school career has been praised, but his tenure hasn’t been without strife: in November of 2011, he tore his ACL. Isaacs has played on both sides of the football, but scouting reports prefer him as a tight end. They also speak highly of his skills as a run blocker.

Cory Jasudowich
Linebacker: Cheshire, CT

Another Constitution State newcomer for 2013 is Cory Jasudowich, inside linebacker for his varsity football squad in Cheshire. He’s a Rivals three-star recruit and the fourth-best overall in Connecticut.

Prior to his commitment, Jasudowich received other offers from UConn, Temple, UMass and ACC foe Maryland before ultimately deciding on BC. As it turns out, he attended Penn State camp in June and verballed to Boston College a few days later.

Earlier this month, Jasudowich took on an exciting role as captain of the American team in the International Federation of American Football Under-19 World Championships in Austin, Texas. Unfortunately, the US lost to Canada in the title game.

Kevin Kavalec
Defensive end: Cleveland, OH

Not much information is available on Kavalec, aside from the fact that he’s a strongside defensive end for St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland. He measures at 6-3 and 240 pounds.

Kavalec is a two-star recruit according to Scout, one of the few services to rank him. He reportedly received other offers from Bowling Green and Ohio University before committing to join the Eagles on June 21.

Mackay Lowrie
Quarterback: West Roxbury, MA

Mackay Lowrie is the only Massachusetts recruit for 2013 so far. A two-star Rivals recruit (three-star ESPN), Lowrie plays quarterback for Roxbury Latin High School. He is considered one of the top five Bay State recruits for this class.

Lowrie joined the incoming 2013 class on May 6 of this year after Boston College made him an offer. His scouting report hails his arm strength and calls him an “athletic pocket passer that has the skill set to play in most every scheme and is good enough to be counted on as a designated runner if need be.”

He appears to be a promising player and Eagles fans should keep an eye on his continued development in high school.

Dan Monteroso
Wide receiver: Saint Clairsville, OH

Dan Monteroso is a recent commit to Boston College, joining the list of recruits in the last day of June. Right away, anyone familiar with a Google search of him knows that he’s got recruiting profiles — not just in football, but also in basketball. For shits and giggles, this is a little of his basketball scouting report:

"He is a decent slasher that is able to snake his way to the basket. He is a good athlete that is able to finish at the rim with the occasional dunk. He is a good natural scorer."

Steve Donahue does like natural scorers, so who knows, it may have worked out (if BC recruited him, that is), but Monteroso saw a lot more activity as a football recruit. He will join the team as a wide receiver and is a three-star recruit. He received other offers from Ohio University, Bowling Green, Marshall, and Iowa but ultimately settled on Chestnut Hill. Eight days before that, he said that Iowa was “by far my favorite,” but we’ll take it.

Joel Rich
Defensive end: Minerva, OH

Rich committed to BC on the same day as Monteroso, June 30. He is an unrated defensive end out of Ohio.

There isn’t a ton of football-related information available on Rich’s high school tenure — we know he has played defensive end, tight end, and fullback, he received his only other offer from Buffalo, and that he ran a 5.36 40-yard dash — but there are other facts which are public knowledge. For example, Rich has taken AP Trig and AP Bio, has a 4.00 GPA, and is/was his class president. Smart kid, and not only because he picked BC.
