Worcester (Mass.) St. John's defensive tackle James McGillicuddy took a trip about 1/2 hour from his home for an official visit to Boston College this weekend. How did it go?
"It was a great visit, I had a great time," said the 6-foot-4, 289-pounder. "I was hosted by Kevin Crane and I had some good food, went to a basketball game and hung out with the team."
McGillicuddy, ranked as the No. 10 defensive tackle in the country, has now taken official visits to Duke and Boston College. His final official visit could come in January when he trips to Stanford.
"I was supposed to go this weekend, but we have the Super Bowl," he said. "So I think I'm going on Jan. 7. That should be it, I want to get it over with so I'll decide right after my Stanford trip between BC, Duke and Stanford."
McGillicuddy saw the Eagles miss a chance to go to a BCS bowl game with their loss to Syracuse.
"That was the only disappointing part about the whole thing," he said. "I was really excited about seeing BC go to a BCS game."
Is there a leader for his services?
"No, not really," he said. "I liked Duke, I like BC and I want to see Stanford before I decide anything."
