Addazio added a kicker to his 2018 class with Connecticut's John Tessitore. If the name is familiar it is because the Choate kicker is son of ESPN and BC's Joe Tessitore. Kickers don't usually make or break a recruiting class, but I feel like Tessitore could be a big shot in the arm. With his commitment we will get more media attention and favorable mentions from ESPN. Joe Tessitore does a good job supporting BC without crossing any lines at ESPN. Now his colleagues will have a free pass to mention John on various shows and game broadcasts.
I also think John has the chance to help Addazio build this class. He is a son of an Alum. He is a New England kid. He is a true student athlete. He can use social media and other tools to help sell other prospects.
Congrats to John and the Tessitore family. Joe called the most famous kick in BC history as a student. Let's hope John makes and even bigger kick during his time at BC.
