The recruiting season is beginning to pick up steam as Boston College received yet another recruit, their second in a week. Krondis Larry, a running back from Booker T. Washington High School in Miami Florida. Larry (his last name) announced his decision on Twitter.
Just committed to BOSTON COLLEGE OFFICIALLY A EAGLE.........— Krondis Larry (@THEHUMANJET) April 2, 2013
He is an intriguing recruit because he is brings a characteristics that have been lacking at BC. He runs a 4.3 40. According to his Scout.com profile he played a little slot receiver as well, so he might fill the role currently held by Tahj Kimble. He is a little undersized at 160 pounds, but give him some time in the weight room and he will be college size ready.
Larry like many 2014 recruits does not currently have a ranking on most of the recruiting wires. Boston College was his first offer, and just offered him in the last week, but he apparently had interest from Alabama, Oregon, West Virginia, Illinois, Miami and Florida State. Interestingly, his size varies depending on what wire you use, Rivals has him at 5'6, Scout 5'8 and ESPN at 5'5. Of course he is only a high school junior, so he could still add a few more inches in his senior year.
Krondis who's name is "The Human Jet" is the first recruit from Florida, which is Todd Fitch's area of recruiting. In his junior year he gained 800 yards rushing and 200 yards receiving and 16 total touchdowns as Booker T. Washington won a State Championship. He is the second running back in the class joining Marcus Outlow from Connecticut.
Highlights from his junior year can be seen here.
Welcome to Boston College Krondis!
