Boston College picks up third 2016 verbal commitment
Boston College added to their 2016 recruiting class on
Saturday picking up a verbal commitment from Greenwich High School’s
Harrington, 6’5”, 235 pounds, was on a visit to the Boston College
campus when he verbally committed.
The Eagles jumped on the talented Connecticut star being the first of six
early offers for the big tight end. The commitment was not a big surprise but
has to be an exciting day for the BC family, Scooter is a legacy. Scott
Harrington played defensive end for the Eagles in the mid 1980’s.
Scooter’s other offers included Connecticut,
(second offer), and Yale. He was receiving heavy recruiting interest from Duke,
Northwestern, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, and Stanford.
Harrington had a standout junior season playing tight end
and defensive end. He was named All-State, All-County, USA Today All-State
team, Connecticut Class LL coaches All-State Team at tight end.
The scouting report on Harrington: Harrington is a two-way
tight end able to contribute in the running and passing game. He adjusts to the
ball in the air, well seasoned at finding a hole in the defense, and shields
himself from defenders to come down with the ball in traffic. He has great
hands, makes the routine plays, but can make the circus catch hauling in just
about anything within his reach.
College initially offered
Harrington after his freshman season.
The Eagles also have verbal commitments from tight end
