Suntrup is an Eagle
On Friday, highly touted Missouri QB recruit Christian Suntrup committed to BC. While it is way too early to speculate on Suntrup's future at BC, his commitment is a good sign that the staff's recruiting strategy and message is taking hold. Despite no previously established relationship with his high school, despite a now loaded QB depth chart, and despite plenty of offers from other programs, Suntrup decided to commit to BC now. Hats off to Dave Brock for closing out another prospect.
Suntrup seems like the type of QB we would and should recruit. Preppy, pro style, mid westerner who went to a Catholic High School. His transition to a place like BC should be pretty seamless. Suntrup is the type of guy who wants to be the next Matt Ryan. We might as well leverage that on the recruiting trail. Speaking of Ryan...the only downside I see of landing your top choice is that sentimental favorite and legacy John Loughery will probably go elsewhere.
Let's hope Suntrup gets plenty of press this summer and helps build momentum for this class.
