Head Coach Jim Christian and Co. is looking to recruit big in 2015, with several open scholarships to be filled at the end of the 2014-15 season. The Boston College Eagles have positioned themselves to land a number of highly recruited prospects that could end up being program changers.Having been heavy players in the final list of top 100 prospects Terance Mann (Florida State U.) and Donovan Mitchell (Louisville) who opted to play for other programs. The Eagles are showing great efforts in keeping local prospects in New England.
The Eagles are in the mix with local ranked prospects Josh Sharma, Aaron Falzon and AJ Turner. Turner, who attends the New Hampton School in New Hampshire is a smooth wing that could add instant offense to the Eagles. Sharma, a 6-foot-11 athletic big man who runs the floor well has a developing offensive game whose real impact will come on the defensive end protecting the rim. Josh Sharma is scheduled to be on campus for an official visit Sept. 18. Falzon, is a sharp shooting forward who can light it up in bunches from deep and can fill the void of a skilled perimeter player. Falzon is slated to visit BC in October for an official visit. Jim Christian and his staff will be on Northfield Mt. Hermon campus this week to visit Josh Sharma and Aaron Falzon who are prep teammates. All three prospects have official visits set up with Boston College this fall.
Head Coach Jim Christian has also made his way outside of New England with Jerome Robinson and Matt Milon. Milon, a 6-foot-4 shooter from Oviedo, Florida became the first member of the Eagles 2015 recruiting class when he gave a verbal commitment over the weekend while on a visit. Robinson recently gave a verbal commitment to the Eagles while visiting the Chestnut Hill campus today. Whereas Markis McDuffie will Join AJ Turner on a visit to Chestnut Hill Sept. 12. where Jared Dudley (Milwaukee Bucks) has already expressed that he will be on campus.
Jared Dudley has recently took to Twitter in response to finding out Sharma would be visiting BC saying “We Need Him”. There’s a new feeling of excitement over at Chestnut Hill under the direction Jim Christian and Co. who are working towards sitting on top of that hill in collegiate sports.
