Boston College managed to snag its third commitment from New Jersey in the class of 2018 when LB Nick DeNucci committed to the school via twitter.
The 6-foot-1, 220-pound recruit out of Pope John XXIII choose the Boston College Eagles over 11 other offers from the likes of Army, Louisville, Maryland, navy, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple, West Virginia, and Yale. He talked with us here at NJVarsity.com a little bit about the commitment.
"Education came first,” DeNucci told NJVarsity.com "BC is an unbelievable school with huge connections in the New York city area and Boston area. The school also felt very similar to my catholic school back at home. The coaching staff also really liked me as a player and a person. At the end of the day recruiting is a business and i did not feel any of that at BC.”
Former Don Bosco Prep assistant coach and current Boston College assistant Anthony Campanile was the point man for DeNucci’s recruitment.
“Coach Camp was my main recruiter at BC. His recruiting pitch was to pick a school without thinking about football first. He said to ask myself if the school didn’t have football could I see myself there. Also he told me about the connections that they have in the NYC area and Boston area. Also he talked about the team’s good defense,” said DeNucci.
Right now Boston College has three kids from the state of New Jersey so far. Don’t be shocked to see that number increase soon as DeNucci plans on recruiting some other guys ASAP.
“I’m definitely planning on recruiting some guys myself. I just have to see what guys could see themselves at BC, the process starts today,” DeNucci said.
