St. John's OL Ragan commits to Boston College


St. John's of Shrewsbury junior offensive lineman Sean Ragan gave a verbal commitment to Boston College yesterday, he told ESPNBoston.com.

The 6-foot-5, 285-pound Ragan had one other Division 1 FBS offer at the time of his commitment, from the University of Miami (Fla.). He is currently rated a three-star prospect by ESPNU.

Ragan was named to ESPNBoston's annual All-State Team last fall as an offensive lineman. Over the last two seasons he has made 24 starts at offensive guard, including an appearance in the 2013 MIAA Division 2 State Championship, and has yet to miss a snap. Over that same span of time, the Pioneers have been one of the highest-scoring offenses in Massachusetts, leading the state in yards per game (452) in 2013.

When he arrives in Chestnut Hill in the fall of 2016, he'll be reunited with former St. John's teammate Davon Jones, a former ESPNBoston All-State selection at safety who signed with BC on Feb. 4. Ragan is the second in-state pledge for BC's 2016 recruiting class this week; Marshfield tight end Danny Dalton committed on Monday.

Ragan's father, John, played tight end for BC from 1987-90.

Below are some highlights of Ragan from this season:
