'23 DL Boubacar Traore Takes Official Visit to Boston College

A simple visit creates a much more complex picture of a recruit that was once committed to the Eagles.

Boston College had a massive weekend of official visitors, and camps, but one unexpected name stuck out. Former Eagles commit and now Notre Dame pledge Boubacar Traore, a '23 four star DL out of Catholic Memorial was on campus for an official visit. 

Traore on Twitter referred to the trip to campus as an "unofficial visit." But BC Bulletin was able to confirm that this was indeed an official visit. Why is this important? Many programs do not look kindly on their commits taking official visits to other programs. It shows the recruit really isn't completely sold on their program, and many times these programs yank the committable offer.

But for now, reports from the Notre Dame sites claim that this isn't really a big deal, and they still expect Traore to stick with the Irish. That being said, this recruit, one many had thought was locked in with ND, could be a story that is worth monitoring in the coming months. If the Eagles were able to flip him, Traore would immediately be their number one recruit in the class.
