On Monday, Boston College called and offered a scholarship to Alexandria (Va.)
Mount Vernon tight end/defensive end Justin Bell, just days before he heads to Chestnut Hill for an official visit.
All this might add up to another commitment for the Eagles this weekend.

“There’s an all right chance I’ll commit this weekend,” Bell said. “It’s a possibility.”
The 6-foot-3, 250-pound Bell prefers to play tight end in college, but he’s also being recruited as a defensive end.
Boston College, though, hasn’t specified.
“They want me to play anywhere,” Bell said. “I just want to get on the field.”
Bell has made one official visit thus far, going to Pittsburgh on Jan. 10.
The Panthers may pose the most competition to BC for Bell, who lists the Panthers, Eagles, Marshall and Maryland as his four favorites. All but the Terrapins have offered, and Bell doesn’t expect Maryland to come through.
A school trip will prevent Bell from making a visit on Jan. 31, meaning his trip to Boston College will likely be his final visit.
“This will probably be my last trip,” Bell said.
Bell is ranked by Rivals.com as a three-star prospect and as the No. 42 tight end nationally.
