Boston College Football Recruiting: DT Ray Smith Commits to Eagles


Boston College Eagles football recruiting continued its very productive week with its twentieth recruit, 2015 California defensive tackle Ray Smith.

One could call it a torrid pace, given that Smith became the fourth recruit to join the Eagles since yesterday. He is also the eleventh for the Eagles during the month of June, in what has been one of its most constructive months in recent memory.

Ray Smith is the first recruit of this class from the West Coast, hailing from San Diego, California, where he plays for Cathedral Catholic High School. He comes in at 6-foot-1 and 270 pounds, and being a defensive tackle — a position of great need in the short term — the Eagles might wish he’d be available much sooner than 2015.

At the time of his commitment to Steve Addazio and the coaches, Ray Smith boasted other offers from San Diego State, Air Force, and Navy. It appears that this was a fast moving process for him, as Smith was offered while at camp a few weeks ago, and he timed his commitment to coincide with a very busy week around the program.

When it came to the reasons behind Smith’s commitment, 247’s Chris Anderson learned that “the feel” at Boston College sold him on the school.

As we have had the chance to do with many high school football players over the last few weeks, we welcome Smith to the Heights.
