Signs of activity for Addazio's next recruiting class

As I've written before, I am not real concerned with recruiting rankings. I do find the sausage making of recruiting interesting. Where BC recruits, who BC recruits, and how BC recruits tells us about Addazio's approach. BC can't officially talk about recruiting, but the openess of social media allows us more insight into the process. For example, since Signing Day Addazio and staff has been busy offering players for the 2018 class. Look at all the players mentioning offers on Twitter below. From Twitter, it is also clear that BC wants them to share their status. BC must be providing pictures and logos to these guys since the same ones show up on tweet after tweet.

Traditionally Addazio locks in most of his class over the summer. With this current wave of activity, maybe things will fill up even faster.

Boston College university? Best and brightest coming soon to a 6-6 team near you.

Yeah, let's not get too picky.

BC gives out a lot of offers. Including to MLB star David Justices's son. Pretty low conversion rate for BC from offer to acceptance to enrollment.

If you don't like recruiting rankings as a metric for success, recruiting offers is even less meaningful

Ps. why do they all say that they are "blessed"

More than one mentioned "Boston College University". I wonder if that was fed to them by Addazio and Co too.

Are we really harping on the fact that these students are saying Boston College University??? SMH, the post you guys make sometimes let's me know some of yall (yes I'm from texas) never played a down of Div.1 football.. the things you guys pick at are sometimes mind blowing.

David Justice's kid goes to Saints in San Diego. He's the exact kind of guy BC should be targeting and he really should be low hanging fruit.

Thomas said...

@NASA I wasn't being critical, especially since it's accurate. Just odd since BC isn't ever referred to as BCU.

BB - i would think A name guy like Justice would be hard to get..... if he is at least 3* calibre

mrNASA - not too many BC football players - maybe none - are on this board. less than 1% of BC alum are football players.

Bravesbill said...

He's a 3/4 star guy from a Catholic school that BC should be able to get if it's coach was competent.

Texas sucks. Queers and Steers.
MrNASA would not know a D1 FB player if he was introduced to one. And yes it is Boston College. At least know the name of the school. Is it to much to ask? Of do we want to keep wiping the ass of these so called men . Grow the f up. Call your wife by your whore mistress name. She what happens. Yeah - they are all blessed and have to shout it to the world. Look at me generation. None of them are anything special until they do something.

Where did you go to school MrNASA? Was it...
The college of Texas?
Southern Methodist college?
College of Houston or University of Houston college?

College?
