Boston College continued their electrifying run in 2014 on Friday, adding Westminster School (GA) athlete Cameron Seward.
Seward gives the Eagles ten commitments in this class.
“It’s going to be Boston College,” the 6-foot-1, 200-pound prospect told Heights247 earlier this week. “Just the consistency that I’ve always had with them – even when they were going through changes on the coaching staff, they’ve always been the ones recruiting me the hardest.”
Although Al Washington was his lead recruiter (“there wasn’t a week that went by where I didn’t talk to him”) and Don Brown checked in periodically, Seward says his recruitment was truly a team effort.
“Boston College is really the only school where I’ve talked to the head coach more than once,” said Seward, speaking of new head coach Steve Addazio. “He’s the only (head coach) that I’ve talked to for more than a few minutes.”
That aggressive approach from the Eagles actually had Seward leaning their way for some time. That feeling kept popping into his head, and earlier this week he couldn’t wait any longer.
“I’ve always sort of known in the back of my head that this is definitely the place that wants me the most; the place where I can be most successful,” said the three-star, 82-rated recruit. “This week I realized I kept thinking ‘what am I waiting for’ and I didn’t have a good answer – the best answer was looking me right in the face the whole time.”
As far as what he will play at the next level, Seward is listed as an athlete, capable of playing multiple positions on both sides of the ball. The Eagles like him on defense and are ready to use his versatility.
“Coach Brown said they would try to use me in multiple different situations,” said Seward. “I would play a SAM or Rover, sort of a hybrid safety-outside linebacker type in their defense. I would get out in coverage when (the offense is) in a five-wide set and could be coming off the edge in a three-point stance in other packages.”
Seward is a lot more than just a football player, though. His academics are very important to him, and that was just another huge boost for the Eagles.
“I’m thinking about studying communications when I get to college and Boston College has a great communications program,” said Seward. “They are definitely one of the top schools in the nation and a degree there really could help me when I’m looking for a job.”
Seward gives Boston College ten commitments in the 2014 class, their fifth on the defensive side of the ball.
