Athlete Drew Barksdale (Solon, Ohio/Solon) has become Boston College's seventh Class of 2013 verbal from the state of Ohio, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound rising senior also picked up scholarship offers from Air Force, Akron and Ohio.

"I wanted a school with good football and one which would fit me academically,'' he said. "My grandparents live about 10-15 minutes away from BC and I have an aunt who lives about 45 minutes away. It's comforting to know I'll have family close by.''
