Checking in with Boyle, Langston

Wrapping up on his weekend notes this morning, ESPN's Roger Brown checks in with two New England prospects on the Division 1 radar, Xavier (Conn.) junior quarterback Tim Boyle and Everett senior running back/linebacker Vondell Langston.

Boyle, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound junior, told Brown he expects to return from a shoulder injury in time to play in Xavier's game against Hillhouse on Oct. 28.

“I don't want this to happen again, so I want to make sure it's 100 percent before I come back,” Boyle told Brown.

Boyle has offers from Boston College and Syracuse. He said UConn, Temple and Rutgers are showing strong interest, and that he receives mail regularly from Duke, Florida, Miami, Stanford and Wisconsin. He has missed four games since being injured in Xavier's opener against Notre-Dame West Haven.

Langston, meanwhile, enjoyed a career day for the No. 1 Crimson Tide in their 42-21 win over Xaverian, running for a career-high 203 yards and two scores on 15 carries. He's drawn mild interest from UConn and Syracuse, but said UMass -- which is moving to the MAC in 2012 -- is the only school pursuing him at this point.
