This is an interesting bit of news on several levels: Boston College got a significant commitment when Donald Hand, Jr. announced for the Eagles.
Some of you will remember his father, Donald Sr., who played for Virginia around the turn of the century and was a three-time captain.
The elder Hand was about 6-0 but his son is a good bit bigger at 6-6. He’s generally seen as a 3 to 4 star recruit and his commitment is a very big deal for Boston College.
New coach Earl Grant seems like a very sharp and capable guy. At Charleston, he had one losing season and then was very competitive (last season Charleston was 9-10 but as you know we think everyone deserves a pass for last season).
That’s an impressive run considering you can’t really recruit the best players to Charleston. Getting Hand to BC is a great start. If BC can at least show some heart this season and Grant can pick up a few more decent recruits, then the Eagles might, finally, get a pulse back.
