FBS offers come for St. John's Prep TE Jake Burt

March, 31, 2014
St. John's Prep head coach Brian St. Pierre told members of the Boston area media this afternoon that prized junior tight end Jake Burt recently received his first two Division 1 FBS offers -- Virginia last Saturday, and Boston College back on March 15.

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Burt had a breakout season last year for the Eagles in a "flex" role, posing matchup problems from the slot, split out wide, or in-line. Holy Cross was the first Division 1 school to offer Burt, last fall, with Brown and Harvard following up with offers of their own.

BC also has offers out to Xaverian defensive end Joe Gaziano, Lawrence Academy tight end/linebacker Chris Garrison, and Amherst athlete Taj-Amir Torres. Since the Eagles offered Burt on March 15, they picked up three in-state commitments in Shepherd Hill offensive guard Chris Lindstrom, Everett cornerback Lukas Denis, and Brockton guard/tackle Aaron Monteiro.
