Former Old Dominion kicker/punter Satchel Ziffer announced his commitment to Boston College Monday night. I am encouraged that we are adding an experienced 5th year talent. I just wasn't expecting it to be a Special Teams guy.
Ziffer is certainly welcome, as BC will need a punter next year and he has the potential to kick as well.
News on other 5th years should be rolling in shortly. Presumably the guys want to join the team in January, so they would have to commit now. Also, many are wrapping up their bachelors degree this semester. Once completed they can play immediately.
There has been plenty of gossip about 5th year OLinemen and WRs coming in, but no real leads on any potential QBs.
