Boston College: The Eagles have had a banner 24 hours

The Boston College Football program is on a roll. In a span of 24 hours, the Eagles added three players that will help the program now and in the future.

Let’s start with Cal defensive lineman Luc Bequette who is a grad transfer and eligible to play right away. Bequette was a three year starter at Cal racking up 130 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and 10 sacks in his career. He started 42 games for the Golden Bears.

At 6-2 290, Bequette can play the three technique defensive tackle and would be a ideal fit next to nose tackle T.J Rayam. The Eagles also added former Buffalo defensive tackle Chibueze Onwuka earlier this off-season. Defensive tackle was a weak spot heading into this off-season but all of a sudden it appears to be a strength.

Bequette wasn’t the only addition. The Eagles also picked up their 20th 2021 commitment when Jamareeh “Bugg” Jones, a wide receiver from Highland Springs, Virginia committed yesterday. The three star recruit also held offers from Maryland, North Carolina, East Carolina and Notre Dame.

Perhaps the biggest news of the last 24 hours was the commitment of Peter Delaportas (Class of 2022). The Pope John XII (New Jersey) quarterback is a major pick up for the Eagles. The four star recruit held offers from Kentucky, Syracuse, Rutgers, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia but ultimately chose B.C.

According to 24/7, Delaportas is the 10th ranked pro-style quarterback in the Class of 2022.

Landing Delaportas could bode well for the Eagles as they are in pursuit of other New Jersey recruits in the class. Seeing Delaportas commit will certainly make the Eagles more attractive to them.

Delaportas is the third recruit of the Class of ’22 to commit to the Eagles. He joins Jamal Hood of St. Frances, Maryland and Jack Funke of Xaverian as the other recruits.
