Boston College landed another commitment on Wednesday, as '22 athlete CJ Clinkscales (Buford, GA) announced his decision on Twitter:
Clinkscales, a three star athlete, also had offers from Colorado, West Virginia and a variety of group of five schools. He, along with teammate and fellow BC offer VJ Payne recently unofficially visited Boston College, and according to the recruit it went incredibly well. He is an athlete that could play either side of the ball, either as running back or defensive back.
BC Bulletin spoke to Clinkscales shortly his decision, he said that the coaches recruited him "as a running back but they also talked about playing me at slot in some situations to get guys in space," Clinkscales replied. "Coach Hafley also asked me if I wanted to play a little nickel. I told him I’ll play wherever I’m needed. I love to ball anywhere on the field."
When asked why he chose Boston College, Clinkscales said, "Trust and a renewed winning culture. Coach Hafley and Coach Gunnell kept it real with me from day one and made themselves available for my family. I honestly feel that there’s a positive vibe that’s going to bring a lot of wins to the program. I was very impressed with how BC went toe to toe with some very good teams last season."
With Clinkscales verbally committing, the next name to watch for is his teammate. VJ Payne, who plays a hybrid/linebacker role would be a good fit for Tem Lukabu's defense. They are also close with Ryland Gandy, a defense back from the same high school. Could Boston College land two or even three commitments from the same Georgia high school? Stay tuned.
