Three more recruits commit!

Addazio's staff isn't slowing down on the recruiting front. Three more recruits committed Wednesday. The group represents a good mix of local late bloomers and versatile recruits from strong football regions.

Davon Jones jumped on board first. He camped at BC and is local, so the staff must have a good feel for his potential. Of the latest prospects, he's the least heralded, but the familiarity should calm any concerns about his potential.

Jimmy Martin committed too. He's another versatile athlete out of Florida. He's projected as a Linebacker or Fullback at this level. Martin held offers from other ACC schools, a Big Ten program and a bunch of mid-majors in the south. 

The biggest surprise of the day was Virginia linebacker Tanner Karafa. He had offers from both UVA and Virginia Tech. Karafa also had multiple Ivy League offers, so you know he can fit in academically.

I don't know why there has been such a rush of verbals. My guess is some of these guys had deadlines as it looks like Addazio is ready to fill out most of the class. I expected things to slow down, but with the way things are going Addazio might be to 25 recruits by the end of the week!

Apparently, BC has tweeted out that Fr. Neenan died. As a fellow Iowan, he went out of his way to welcome me to BC in 1985 and I absolutely loved his book list. He bled maroon and gold and he will be greatly missed by the BC community.

Fr. Neenan was one the greatest people I met at BC. I always enjoyed chatting with him. He will be greatly missed.
