Boston College offers BC High TE McShea

By ESPNBoston.com

ESPN's Roger Brown reports today on the East Football Recruiting Blog that Boston College High tight end/defensive end Jameson Mcshea received a scholarship offer from Boston College over the weekend.

BC offensive line coach and Massachusetts recruiting coordinator Sean Devine extended an offer to McShea, a Cotuit native, on Saturday. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound McShea was the Catholic Conference's Lineman of the Year, and an ESPN Boston All-State selection, as the Eagles captured their second Eastern Mass. Super Bowl championship in four seasons.

McShea initially committed to Temple last summer, but de-committed last month.

Brown writes:



“I'd been talking to BC quite a bit,” McShea said. “They told me everything depended on Sam Grant. I got the offer about an hour after he decommitted.”

McShea, who decommitted from Temple in December, said he was down to Harvard and BC.

“It was between UMass and Harvard,” he said. “Once I decided it was Harvard over UMass I was just waiting on BC. I've already been accepted at Harvard, but I'm really not leaning one way or another.”

McShea is very familiar with BC. He has been to several BC games, went to a BC junior day and attended the BC camp twice.

McShea said he expects to make his decision within the next week.

“I'll talk it over with my parents and do a little more homework,” he said. “BC asked me to give them a decision a few days before signing day because they may have spots to fill.”
