Darmstatter Is An Eagle

One of the big targets in the 2010 recruiting class was New Jersey Tight End Jarrett Darmstatter. The three star end had a very long list of offers from top schools around the country. A week ago he made his decision and informed the Boston College coaches he was ready to become an Eagle.

The last time we checked in with Jarrett Darmstatter, he had just returned from an official visit at Boston College. At the time, he was preparing for an official to Purdue and maybe some of the other schools on his list. Last Sunday, he made the decision to end the process and commit to the Eagles.

"I committed to Boston College. I called Sunday night and let the coaches know I was ready to be an Eagle. They were very happy. They are going on the road and they may stop by and see me, but I don't know. I do know they were very happy."

With so many schools, offering a variety of experiences, Boston College stood out because of the mix of football and academics.

"I went out to Purdue a few weekends ago. It was for the Illinois game. I had a great time. I was going to go to other schools, but I had made up my mind. The thing that sold me was the academics. I was really comfortable with the coaches and the players. The whole atmosphere was just perfect for me. I'm going to be a tight end for them. I really liked how they use the tight ends in their offense.

"I'm not sure what I want to do for a major. What I liked about BC is I can take my core courses and then decide. College offers a lot of opportunities as far as majors. I want to see what I like before settling on a major."

The rumor mill had been churning for a week. Fans were curious as to why there was a delay in the announcement.

"I had not told the other coaches yet. I don't think it is fair to have the other coaches find out on the Internet. "

Jarrett joins the 2010 class and is projected to be a tight end for BC. Because of how Coach Tranguill uses tight ends in the offense, the opportunity to play some H-back is also a possibility for Jarrett. Scout has Jarrett ranked as the 16th best tight end prospect in the nation.
