Eagles making March additions to their 2017 class


Steve Addazio and his staff are in the early stages of constructing their 2017 recruiting class, and this month, they have landed two prospects who both address areas of need.

Running back Travis Levy of Sandy Spring, Maryland, committed to the Eagles on March 7. A consensus 3-star prospect, Levy made his decision just days after receiving a BC offer.

Levy, who was also being courted by Vanderbilt, Albany, Army, Eastern Michigan, Robert Morris, UMass and Western Michigan, is a key addition to Boston College’s 2017 group. After the 2016 season, the team graduates running backs Myles Willis and Tyler Rouse along with fullback Bobby Wolford.

On the same day that Levy committed, 2017 tight end Devan Lawson pledged to the Eagles. A 6-5, 235-pound prospect, Lawson hails from Spring Valley, New York.

BC desperately needed tight ends during the 2016 cycle, and it addressed that issue by signing Korab Idrizi of New Jersey and Ray Marten of New York last month. With Michael Giacone graduating after this season, Lawson will add depth the following year.
