2018 Verbal Commit Wynston Tabbs and 2019 Target Joseph Girard will be heading to the Heights this upcoming weekend

BC Basketball will have its first major recruiting visit of the new school year as 2018 BC commit Wynston Tabbs and 2019 target Joseph Girard will head to Chestnut Hill to watch the Notre Dame vs. Boston College football game.

According to a source: "Wynston is scheduled for an official and Girard is an unofficial".

Tabbs is already verbally committed to BC, and is one of BC's best grabs in the past few years. Last week, I spoke highly of Tabbs, saying the following:

"Getting a commitment from Tabbs is a solid start for the Eagles’ 2018 recruiting efforts--especially considering the interest Tabbs was receiving from more reputable ACC programs. At just 6-2, Tabbs likely won’t ever have the frame to be an elite stopper on the defensive end, however his playmaking and explosiveness on the offensive end more than make up for that.

First and foremost, Tabbs is a scorer, and given the Eagles’ lack of depth at the guard positions, having a potential microwave off the bench would go a long way for Jim Christian. And while Tabbs doesn’t have the size that other targets such as Wertz and Nunez have, Tabbs is a lot faster than both of those players, meaning he has a chance to be a solid running mate with Ky Bowman in the future.

Given his elite athleticism and scoring ability, Tabbs has a chance to make an immediate impact in his freshman year, and if he can continue to develop his passing and playmaking, I could see him being a multi year starter for the Eagles."

Girard, is also a combo guard prospect. Measuring 6-2, 170, Girard will be entering his junior season at Glenn Falls Senior High School is Glenn Falls, NY. He currently holds offers from BC, St. John's, St. Louis, UMass, Penn State, Washington, and George Washington--and he also took an unofficial visit to Michigan a few days ago. You can check out some of his highlights here:

Given the Eagles lack of depth at the guard positions, both of these targets make sense, and hopefully the Eagles can make both of the recruits feel at home at BC. A close football game would be a nice start--or at least not a blow out.
