Xavier's Tim Boyle gives verbal to BC
Thhe 6-foot-4, 218 pound Boyle also had offers from UConn, Florida, UMass, Pittsburgh and Syracuse.
"BC was one of the first schools to offer," Xavier coach Sean Marinan said. "It wasn't until the last couple of months that he got all types of national interest."
Marinan believes Boyle has unlimited potential.
"I think he can go all the way (to the NFL)," Marinan said. "He has a great arm. He's a tall kid, and he's starting to put on weight. I think he's done growing up, but I think he will start to thicken up. I think he could get to 230.
"He's working hard in the weight room. I think everything's there for him. Now it's going to be about the mental aspect and the adjustment to the speed of the game at the next level. But he has the potential to play on Sundays."
Boyle shared time under center with graduating senior Pat D'Amato last season and helped lead the Falcons to the Class LL state title for the second consecutive year. Boyle threw for 850 yards and 15 touchdowns in six games last year. He did miss some time with a shoulder injury.
