And Neubert Makes Five

The BC Eagles recently received a commitment from the #26-ranked prospect in the Keystone State, according to Scout.com. Click inside to meet the newest Eagle.

Two recruiting classes ago, Boston College dipped into the North Penn (Pa.) talent pool and plucked out Kevin Akins, now they have struck again. The Eagles have landed one of the top fifty prospects in the "Keystone State".

Actually Lansdale (Pa.) North Penn defensive end Josh Neubert (6-4, 245, 4.75) had made up his mind two weeks ago, but just made it official last Thursday.

Me and my family had decided on Boston College about two weeks ago," Neubert said. "We drove up on Wednesday, and I gave Coach [Keith] Willis and Coach [Jason] Swepson the news. Coach [Tom] O'Brien was out of town, but I did get to talk to him on the phone.

Neubert fell in love with Boston College a few months ago, but it was not until he started visiting other schools that he realized that Boston College was right for him.

"When I went to their junior day and scrimmage I really liked it, but my opinion got better as I visited other schools. I decided that's where I wanted to go."

So what exactly sold Neubert on Boston College?

"Everything was awesome there, I really can pinpoint one thing," Neubert said. "I liked the city, it's a quality program with great academics."

Neubert finished his junior season with 10 sacks, and he earned second team All-League honors.

The "Keystone State" standout chose the eagles over Northwestern (offer), Duke, Wake Forest, Notre Dame, and North Carolina.
