Correspondent Roger Brown has more on Lawrence Academy offensive lineman Max Ricci's verbal commitment to Boston College in his recruiting blog today. Among the highlights:
Eagles coach Frank Spaziani asked Ricci to make his decision no later than Saturday. Ricci said he called BC offensive line coach Sean Devine on Friday afternoon and told Devine he'd like to take his five official visits during his senior season before he made a commitment. When Devine said he needed a 100 percent commitment from Ricci right away, Ricci thought about things for three more hours before he called Devine again and told him he wanted to play for BC.
"I decided there was no need to make them wait another day," Ricci said. "I really liked how enthusiastic the coaches were about me and how good the team could be while I'm there.
"I also felt like I'd be comfortable playing for this coaching staff for four years. I don't think any of them are going anywhere. They all told me they're very happy where they are."
