Glines Talks Commitment

Junior Ben Glines has made his commitment. The wide receiver says he's excited to be heading to Boston College.

6-foot-1, 195-pound junior Ben Glines didn't feel the need to prolong his recruitment. The wide receiver is headed for the ACC.

"I committed to Boston College," said Glines. "I felt like it was a great fit for me."

There were several factors that led the wide receiver to his decision.

"It's an Ivy League type of education and I get to play football in a big 5 conference in the ACC at the same time. The staff is great and I have a really good relationship with the coaches. Also, the campus was great as well as the city of Boston in general. The St. X pipeline to BC is really strong and I felt like being at BC gives me the best chance to be successful on and off the football field," he said.

When Glines committed, he said the coaches couldn't have been more welcoming.

"They were very excited. They've been urging me to come to BC since they offered me and they really want me to go up there and be an impact player and a leader on the team," he said.

The junior says that finally having the recruiting process over is a great feeling.

"It's definitely a relief now that having the pressure of recruiting off my shoulders and now I can put my focus on a state championship my senior year," said Glines.

Glines says that he's just excited to become an Eagle.

"I'm really looking forward to playing against some of the top competition in the country in the ACC and playing for an ACC Championship while earning a meaningful degree from BC at the same time," he said.

So, what can Eagles fans expect from the receiver?

"The fans can expect dynamic football and 110% effort all the time from myself as well as my team," he said.
