Jason Maitre, a defensive back who attended Everett High School (MA), is heading into what looks to be his final year of eligibility with the Eagles. During his time in Chestnut Hill, he has seen his role evolve, starting as a defensive back under Steve Addazio and switching over to safety for the 2021 season. A fiery player, and hard hitter, Maitre has been a valuable player for the defense during his time with the Eagles.
Last year was an adjustment for the 5-10 senior. Boston College had good depth at the cornerback position, but an opening at safety, so Maitre moved over and filled that slot. The veteran's season came to an end however when he had surgery in November.
Hometown: Orlando, FL
High School: Everett HS

Depth Chart Overview
His injury status remains unknown heading into next season. But a healthy Maitre gives Boston College loads of versatility in the defensive backfield. Where he plays could all be dependent on the Eagles needs. With the Eagles losing both Brandon Sebastian and Shawn Asbury II both no longer with the program, BC could have a need at corner, but if Hafley sees Maitre as a better fit for free safety he could be lined up with Jaiden Woodbey.
Mitch's Stat Prediction: Assuming he plays free safety this year, 35 tackles, 20 solos, 3 TFLs, 2 INTs, 4 passes broken up
