BC adds linebacker/fullback to 2011 class

The Boston College-Notre Dame rivalry just got even more interesting with the Eagles' latest recruit.

BC got a commitment from linebacker/fullback Nick Lifka of Naperville, Ill. Lifka's two uncles -- Matt and Greg Dingens -- both played for Notre Dame.

According to the Naperville Sun, Lifka had offers from 15 BCS schools, including LSU, Vanderbilt, Duke, Minnesota, Indiana and Iowa State.

BC has one of the smaller classes so far, and it is highlighted by four-star tight end Brian Miller.
