Another day, another Flutie for Boston College football. This time it is Natick High School quarterback Troy Flutie, son of Darren and nephew of Doug, has committed to Boston College.
Snagging Troy Flutie, presumably as a "walk-on", is a good one for the #BCEagles.— Heights247 (@BCEagles247) June 12, 2013
Flutie lit up his competition during his 2012 campaign leading Natick to the Division 2A Super Bowl title game. He completed 68 percent of his passes for 3,153 yards and 35 touchdowns to just eight interceptions, and on the ground he carried 167 times for 1,075 yards and 14 more scores.
Now this is where things get confusing. Some recruiting sites are saying that he is going to be a walk on. Others are saying that he will be a scholarship. If I were a betting man I would guess he received a scholarship, it would make little sense for a recruit to accept a walk on role this early in the process. Guessing he wanted BC due to the legacy of the Flutie name, got his offer, and committed on the spot.
Also it appears that Flutie has been recruited as a wide receiver. He has played both sides of the ball for Natick, as a quarterback and defensive back but it appears that BC is going to bring him in as a wide receiver like his brother Billy Flutie. Now if he runs a fake field goal for a touchdown in his four years at BC, I think we will all be happy.
Troy Flutie has not received any other offers right now, but again it appears he received his scholarship after camp last week at Boston College. I do not believe he is being brought in just because of his name. I live in the area he plays in, and he has done some pretty remarkable things as seen in the video below when he scored 21 points in the 4th quarter
