Boston College's loss turned out to be Jameson McShea's gain.
McShea, a 6-foot-4, 240-pound tight end from Cotuit, Mass. (Boston College High), received a scholarship offer from BC assistant coach Sean Devine on Saturday.
A spot opened up for McShea when tight end Sam Grant (North Royalton, Ohio/St. Edward) decommitted from Boston College earlier that day.
“I'd been talking to BC quite a bit,” McShea said. “They told me everything depended on Sam Grant. I got the offer about an hour after he decommitted.”
McShea, who decommitted from Temple in December, said he was down to Harvard and BC.
“It was between UMass and Harvard,” he said. “Once I decided it was Harvard over UMass I was just waiting on BC. I've already been accepted at Harvard, but I'm really not leaning one way or another.”
McShea is very familiar with BC. He has been to several BC games, went to a BC junior day and attended the BC camp twice.
McShea said he expects to make his decision within the next week.
“I'll talk it over with my parents and do a little more homework,” he said. “BC asked me to give them a decision a few days before signing day because they may have spots to fill.”
