    '12 BC Preview & Recruiting

    The 2011 Boston College Eagles finished the year 10-3 (6-2) and ranked # 14 in the nation in the final poll. It was a disappointing end to the season, after being ranked as high as #6 in the nation. The Eagles return some talent, but graduation thinned the ranks severely.

    Offense
    Boston College will stick with the 1-back offense from last season. This offense provides opportunities to get TE Pantale matched up against linebackers and safeties. Plus, it allows BC to play without the FB position it is weak at. Sr QB Dave Shinskie returns after throwing for nearly 4,000 yards in 2011, along with deep threats Lee and Phillips at the receiver position. Pitt transfer Ray Graham takes over the backfield duties after a redshirt season. Three out of last year's starting 5 offensive linemen return.

    Defense
    The BC defense will be paced by 4 year starting MLB Luke Kuechly. Kuechly led the team in tackles every season and is hoping to cap off this season with an ACC title. It will be an uphill battle, as the Eagles graduated most of its defensive talent. Only 1 out of 4 of last year's secondary returns and the depth is pretty weak. The defensive line returns two all-ACC performers in DE Holloway and DT Murray, along with returning starting DT O'Neal.

    Special Teams
    Boston College returns 2-year starting K Freese, who will also have to punt this season. There does not appear to be any threats in the return game. Coverage should be improved this year, with BC's push to recruit more speed.

    Boston College continues their success recruiting Michigan, picking up :4stars: receiver Junior Evans. Evans is a possession guy and will likely play in the slot.

    Boston College has been pushed to recruit the QB position, due to the ACC arms race with Maryland. In light of that, BC recruiters traveled to the heartland to pluck two of the top 6 QB recruits from Wisconsin and Illinois. #6 QB Horner from Wisconsin is a dropback guy with pretty good arm strength and accuracy, while #5 QB Morgan from Illinois brings more speed and shiftiness to the table. Also, 6'4" TE Denman from Arkansas has signed. Denman is more of a blocker and will help in the running game.

    You're gonna have all your pipeline states in the midwest here soon haha. Looks like you snagged a couple of nice QBs out of there too.
