Crimmins excited for BC
Dan Crimmins put up humongous statistics in his senior season but the Demarest, N.J., wide receiver and Boston College commit said he could have done even better.
The 6-foot-5, 220-pound prospect was somewhat happy with the way he played but even after catching 55 passes for 1,249 yards and 18 touchdowns Crimmins said he could have made more plays.
"I definitely expected to have a good season," Crimmins said. "I'm actually disappointed in myself because I think there were some plays I should have made. I definitely think I had a good season, it was good, but I wasn't satisfied."
Crimmins took his official visit to Boston College this past weekend and he was told the Eagles are looking to use him as a hybrid tight end, an athletic player who can be a mismatch to linebackers.
"They're saying more like an athletic tight end, like a hybrid tight end," Crimmins said. "I have to add muscle and I have to put on weight and I have to learn how to block but I'm excited about playing there.
"I'm excited. I feel like I'm a receiver first so basically I'm taking all my receiver aspects and moving them to tight end. I feel like going against linebackers is a mismatch so it's to my advantage. Once I fill into my body I should be good."
Even though Crimmins could become a hot commodity to certain programs after playing so well in his senior season, the New Jersey standout said he's sticking with Boston College and there's no doubt about it.
There was really never any question about his commitment and the weekend trip only solidified his pledge. He said Boston College's season is of no concern especially because the team was so young.
"It was awesome," Crimmins said of his visit. "The coaches are awesome, the players are really cool and it's definitely the place I want to be.
"I'm 100 percent. I wasn't worried about de-committing or anything like that. I knew I was going to Boston College but it was still good to make sure and it was even more than I expected. It was really good.
"They are young. Some of the games were really tough but they lost to Notre Dame by two points. Everything is going to be fine. It was one down year but before that they had a lot of winning seasons. I'm not worried. The team is young and everyone is buying into it so it should be all good."
