2014 Boston College Wide Receivers Preview: Gabe McClary, likely backup

Our Preview: Gabe McClary, WR

McClary comes to Boston College as a true freshman, but a tall one at 6-3. His size helped him dominate at the high school level, and tall wide receivers are never a bad thing in general.

He is an athletic player, having competed in track and field at his previous school, and that sort of thing opens up some intriguing possibilities for a coach who is looking to populate his depth chart. McClary might make it on there in a backup role, but there is also the possibility that he will redshirt.

It might be too soon to tell what his trajectory is, and his name has not come up much in camp reports so far.

2014 Boston College Wide Receivers Preview: Jeffrey Jay, likely backup

Our Preview: Jeffrey Jay, WR

Walk-on Jeffrey Jay served as a backup last season on the depth chart behind Alex Amidon — meaning there was virtually no chance he would play, since Amidon vacuumed up everything Chase Rettig threw and played most snaps.

He recorded no receptions last season, though that might change given that there will be more snaps available to him if he shows something in camp. Expect to see Jay in a backup role this season, possibly on the two-deep.
