The Boston College Eagles have been hitting the Midwest hard this year. They just landed their third recruit from the area.
"DeJuan decided on a school tonight," said the mother of Cincinnati (Ohio) North College Hill defensive back DeJuan Tribble. "The Boston College coaches were here today and he really liked what he heard from them. He decided to commit."
Tribble, a 5-foot-11, 180-pounder with offers from Pitt, Maryland, Wisconsin and more than 10 others, decided on the Eagles over the Panthers.
"DeJuan was going to visit Pittsburgh this weekend, but he had already been there," she said. "He liked the coaches from both schools, but I think he really fell in love with BC when he visited."
Tribble's team went 4-6 this season, but he had a standout year with more than 50 tackles. Tribble is rated by Rivals.com as a three-star prospect. He’s ranked as the No. 33 cornerback nationally and as the No. 22 player in Ohio.
Tribble joins Pennsylvania quarterback Matt Ryan and Ohio defensive end Nick Larkin as Midwestern commitments for the Eagles.
