Signing Day means new Eagles
As someone who has been following BC recruiting as a skeptic, today is always a fun day. It means the speculation and projecting is over and we now have a group of guys to welcome into the BC family. You can do your best to guess who will make an impact, but history shows that these things are very tough to predict. What we do know: at least five of these guys will have minimal impact on BC. We know a few will be average and hopefully most will be great. Five years from now about four of them will be on NFL rosters. Basically they are in line with most BC recruiting classes of the past decade.
As for criticism and praise...I am glad we kept the Cincinnati pipeline flowing. I also appreciate we were able to take advantage of a deep year for Massachusetts talent. I don't like that we were not a bigger player in New Jersey. I also wish we had used up all our open scholarships. I think "banking" has little upside while another body always seems to be needed.
Because of the weather, BC did not hold a full press conference. Instead Spaz just spoke to reporters over the phone.
ESPN.com only list their Top 25 and BC didn't make the cut.
It does bother me that Spaz still blames the roster issues on the previous coaching staff. Why doesn't any reporter remind him that most of the staff created those "gaps" under Jags and that the team has had the same recruiting coordinator for five years. Shouldn't he have been involved in fixing those gaps years ago?
Illinois is becoming another niche spot that BC is mining.
Bruce Feldman named Albert Louis-Jean as one of the top early enrollees.
Brian Mihalik wants to study business at BC.
Alex Howell is already in touch with Ryan Quigley.
