Stewart commits to BC

ESPN's Bill Hodge is reporting that Xavier (Middletown, Conn.) linebacker Graham Stewart has made a Class of 2011 commitment to Boston College.

The 6-foot-2, 218-pound Stewart, a three-star prospect and the top-ranked prospect in Connecticut by ESPNU, chose the Eagles over offers from Syracuse, UConn, Temple and Iowa. Florida had also shown interest.

Last season, he recorded 100 tackles, three sacks, one interception, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble.

The Eagles now have 11 pledges.
