Today’s links look a lot like a recruiting notebook, because that’s all that’s happening right now, if we’re going to be completely honest with ourselves.

In case you needed a reminder of what is to come, however, Boston College’s football season starts in 75 days.

Rasheem Green Lists His Top 15 Schools (Vandy 247, Chris Smith)

Four-star defensive tackle recruit Rasheem Green made public his top fifteen on Sunday. Boston College is one of them; the complete list is as follows:

"UCLA, USC, Stanford, California, Oregon, Arizona State, Miami, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Boston College, Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, LSU, and Vanderbilt"

Boston College is up against some tough competition in recruiting terms when it comes to acquiring the services of Green, and a Top 15 seems a slightly large number, but there are over 100 FBS schools not in it, so that’s something.

Green is a California recruit. Boston College is the farthest school away on his list, and nobody is holding their breath on this coast, but it speaks to Boston College’s dedication to recruiting that the program is in on players such as this.

Boston College officially lost out on three-star Georgia linebacker Tyler Cooksey on Sunday. The rising high school senior had taken an unofficial trip to the Heights earlier this year, but did not make the Eagles one of his three finalists. It’s hard to compete with legacy, anyway: his father played for the Jackets in the seventies.
