Eagles get Ohio commitment

The Boston College Eagles continue to do a terrific job of recruiting the state of Ohio as their last commitment hails from one of the state's biggest programs.
"I committed to BC today after practice with my coach and my father," said 6-foot-5, 250-pound offensive guard Matt Tennant. "I just really felt better about my visit there and their move to the ACC has a lot to do with it. I felt the best at BC."
Tennant, who plays for Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller, chose the Eagles over offers from Purdue, Penn State, Indiana, Kentucky and others.
"It came down to BC, Penn State and Purdue," he said. "I liked all of them, but BC gives me the best of both athletics and academics."
Did the Eagles win over Penn State on Saturday impact him?
"It might have a little," he laughed. "I only caught the last five minutes of the game because I was playing a game myself, but I jokingly told some folks that whoever won that game I'd commit to. That's not what it came down to, but it was good to see them win since I'm an Eagle now."
Tennant is the third Ohio player to commit to BC this year, joining Marcellus Bowman and Jim Ramella.
