It's only one game into the season and already, my mind is flooded with questions about the future. Thoughts of a graduating senior class and the holes they create permeate my brain as I ponder the potential prospects of subsequent Eagles teams. The date February 2, National Signing Day, lingers in my head. It sits there like an itch unable to be scratched.
I feel the same anxiety that they must feel in Pennsylvania on this very same day. Will Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow? Or will we have an early summer? For Boston College, this day is a far cry from the spectacle put on at Alabama or Florida. There are no media frenzies as prospective players symbolically choose the ball cap of their future team. Instead, it is another day that typically goes under the radar.
While no players can sign on the dotted line until the first Wednesday of February, here is a list of players who have given a verbal commitment to coach Spaz and the Eagles. Without further ado, I present to you a list of what you can realistically expect from these athletes moving forward.
