Update: Joe Boisture

Joe Boisture was the first to commit to Boston College in this recruiting class. A member of the Scout 300, Joe put an end to the recruiting process early when he committed to the Eagles in March. Now with summer upon us, he is getting ready for his upcoming season and has some news for BC fans.

Verbal commitments are not always the end of the recruiting process. Often, schools will continue to recruit a committed player with the hope he will change his mind. In most cases, the commitment puts an end to the process and the player can get back to normal life. Joe Boisture committed to BC in March and things have settled down for him.

"I still get junk mail from schools and every once in a while a coach will call. Kansas State sent an offer in the mail, but I've never really talked to them. Recruiting has definitely died down a lot. It takes a lot of weight off your shoulders, but coaches still call. Not as much as before, that's for sure."

Now that he is committed to the Eagles, a new phase begins. That's getting to know his future school, coaches and teammates.

"I went up a week before the spring game, watched the practice, hung out with some of the players, hung out with Coach Tranquill, talked with coach Spaz. I got to get more comfortable with the campus and got to see how they run practice. I also sat in with Coach Tranquill and the quarterbacks."

With summer coming up, the preparation for his senior season is underway. Joe is at a new school and will be playing for them this fall for the first time.

"I'm at a new school now. I work out three times a week at 6:30 in the morning before school. My main focus right now is getting ready for my senior season. It is a new school and a new team. I want to work hard and help my teammates to a successful season.

"I'm now in one of the toughest leagues in the state. The schools are a lot better and the guys are a lot bigger. Coach has scheduled all the top teams so we have a tough schedule. I'm really looking forward to it. We will play the best schools in the state. The guys will be bigger, faster and stronger, but the guys around me are bigger, faster and stronger too. So, we will be able to protect the passer, run the ball and play defense with everyone."

In addition to working out with his teammates, Joe will continue to be involved with Boston College and enjoy at least one combine.

"This summer I'm just working out with the guys, doing 7-on-7 drills and getting ready for camp. I'm going out to BC one or two more times. I'm also going to the Nike Camp at the University of Illinois. Other than that it is just getting ready for the senior season."

The big news for Boston College fans involves when Joe will hit campus and join his new team. "I'm graduating early. I'll graduate in January and then head off to BC to start there in the spring semester. For a QB it is really important because it gives you a chance to learn the offense early and start working with your teammates. "

Of course, Joe has heard the news that BC will be losing one quarterback for this upcoming season. Dom Davis has decided to transfer after the spring semester.

"I did hear about that. The opportunity is definitely there, but I will have to compete. They still have a red-shirt freshman, a junior college guy and a freshman coming in this year. So, I'm going to have to be prepared to compete with those guys. "
