ISU in play for BC commit Jack Cottrell

Eden Prairie (Minn.) outside linebacker Jack Cottrell did not like to see it happen, but he believes it was a move Boston College had to make.

The three-star prospect and Boston College commit heard the news that Frank Spaziani was let go as the Eagles’ coach Sunday.

“I think it’s a tough thing to have happen but it was necessary after the past two seasons,” he said.

Cottrell’s commitment to Boston College is still solid, but he said if another team offers he could look around. Iowa State could be close to offering.

“I’m still firm,” he said, “but Iowa State would be my next choice.”

Cottrell said in-state Minnesota could also offer.
