Checking in on former Eagles
I always expect a lot out of 5th year transfers. I tell myself that BC will unleash the kid's potential and the change of scenery is just what everyone needs. However, the reminder that 5th years are not all program changers, is learning about former BC guys in their new stops.
Harrison Jackson had a few nice moments at BC but dealt with numerous injuries and numerous offensive coordinators. He never reached his perceived potential and I didn't care when BC failed to keep him on for another year. Former BC Offensive Coordinator Doug Martin must think that he can still get some value out of Jackson, because the BC grad is headed out to New Mexico State. Good luck to him there. He should be targeted more than he ever was at BC.
Malachi Moore is another guy who might benefit from a change of scenery. He contributed at BC but we always had good depth on the Dline and he never became an impact player. Now he's back in New Jersey at Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights have a new defensive minded coach, so maybe Moore will make the mot of his one season of eligibility remaining.
