Brockton's Monteiro commits to Boston College

Brockton High junior lineman Aaron Monteiro has verbally committed to Boston College, he announced this afternoon on his Twitter account.

Adam Kurkjian of the Boston Herald was the first to report the news of Monteiro's commitment.

The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Monteiro is an intriguing prospect, showing flashes of brilliance last fall in his first season of varsity, playing mostly an interior role for the Boxers, who uncharacteristically missed out on a Division 1 South playoff appearance. Monteiro chose the Eagles over offers from Iowa, UMass and UConn.

Monteiro is the third in-state prospect to pledge to BC this month, joining Shepherd Hill offensive guard Chris Lindstrom and Everett cornerback Lukas Denis. Monteiro is also the third Brockton High product to commit to BC since 2009, joining defensive backs Dominique Williams and Albert Louis-Jean, the latter of whom recently declared for the NFL Draft.
