Eagles pick up versatile Connecticut forward

Boston College may have lost out on one of its top big man targets in the class of 2016, as in-state big man Kevin Marfo chose George Washington over Jim Christian’s program. But BC bounced back on Oct. 10, as Mike Sagay, a 6-6 product of St. Thomas Moore School in Oakdale, Connecticut, became the second member of the Eagles’ 2016 hoops class.

“I’d like to announce that I’ve decided to commit to Boston College,” Sagay tweeted the afternoon of Oct. 10.

Sagay is a 6-6, 180-pound combo forward with good athleticism. He’s played football through high school, so he’s got a little bit of physicality and toughness to go along with improving skills. According to Scott Phillips of NBC Sports, Sagay is noted for a decent-looking perimeter shot and an ability to handle the ball on the wing. He’ll join forces next season with North Carolina point guard Ty Graves to give the Eagles more talent, more options, and more scoring potential.

Sagay is a largely-unknown prospect who isn’t ranked by the major networks. But with a need for physical and athletic bodies on the roster, Sagay could fill a variety of roles for Boston College in the coming years.
