Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) outside linebacker Frantz Joseph took his first official visit over the weekend and said he had a great trip. He went to Boston College and gave the visit exceptionally high marks.
“It went fine,” he said. “I had a great time, an awesome time. I would rate it a nine…almost perfect. I mean nothing can be perfect.” He was hosted by freshman wide receiver, Jason Lilly.
Joseph said the thing that really stood out to him about B.C. was their academic standards.
“I mean they have the top graduation rate,” he explained. “Everybody is so positive, it is almost impossible not to graduate. They have like a 90% graduation rate.
“It is a win-win situation there. With the football and a B.C. degree, you can really make a statement.”
Even though he had a very pleasant experience, Frantz is not ready to make a decision at this point, but prefers to look at other options. What exactly are his other options?
Florida, Florida State, and Boston College: Those are really the top three,” he said. He said he really likes the Florida linebacker coach, and he grew up a fan of Florida State, but wants to see how it compares to Boston College on his visit.
“I am really considering Wake Forest, Clemson, and Colorado, too. UCF and Vanderbilt are also still in the mix.”
Joseph is in the process of setting up a visit to Florida State – he plans to have that finished by the end of next week – and plans to visit Colorado in December, although no firm date has been set. Wake Forest and Clemson will most likely be his last two trips, with Vanderbilt also a possibility.
So far this season the 6-foot-2, 210 pound athlete has recorded more than 70 tackles in just seven games. His 4.6 second 40-yard dash time has been one on the facets of his game that separates him from the competition.
Joseph will have no problems gaining admittance into the school of his choice, with a 3.6 GPA and an 840 on the SAT. He wants to major in either computer engineering or business administration and his final career decision will play a role in his college selection process.
