Former BC quarterback heading to community college

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

ESPN's Joe Schad is reporting that former BC quarterback Dominique Davis is transferring to Fort Scott Community College in Fort Scott, Kansas this year before heading to a Division I program.

Finding a quarterback is just one of several uphill battles the Eagles have faced this offseason, and it appears Davis realized the impact his decision had on the program. While Davis might not have been the best quarterback in the ACC, he at least had starting experience. Now they don't have anyone on the roster who's thrown a pass in an ACC game.

Defensive end Jim Ramella said he's seen 25-year-old Dave Shinskie throw, and expects him to adjust fine.

"He's got a really strong arm," Ramella said. "I've seen him throw in seven-on-sevens, but any quarterback will tell you that's much different than throwing the ball when you've got a bunch of dudes coming at you, so we'll see how he does under fire.

"I couldn't tell you about his football smarts," Ramella said. "I'm sure they're a little rusty after not playing football for six years, but hopefully he can come along."
