Boston College quarterback Phil Jurkovec is going to return for the 2022 season per a report from Pete Thamel, and later confirmed by the school. The report comes less than 24 hours after Jurkovec said that he was going to discuss his options with his family and coaches.
“Thank you to all my teammates leaving to pursue their best interests,” Jurkovec said in a press release. “We wish you all success and will always support you from Boston College. In regards to my future, I will be returning to Chestnut Hill in 2022 to complete my economics degree, improve all facets of my game, and compete nationally, Let’s win!”
Jurkovec, had a disappointing '21 season after fracturing his thr in the second game of the season. He ended up missing eight games because of the injury, and returned with much fanfare against Virginia Tech, a game he was instrumental in helping to win. He had a massive game against Georgia Tech, finishing with five touchdowns and being named ACC quarterback of the week. He however finished the season on a poor note, struggling against Florida State and Wake Forest, throwing for only 19 yards in the finale.
During his time at Boston College, Jurkovec has been on the brink of becoming a star. The Notre Dame transfer finished the 2020 season with 2558 yards passing, to go along with 17 touchdowns and five interceptions in just ten games. He also accounted for three rushing touchdowns.
With the news of his return, Jurkovec could be one of the most promising quarterbacks in the 2023 NFL Draft. At 6'5 220lb, Jurkovec could see his draft stock rise with a strong season.
