Pine-Richland QB Phil Jurkovec Commits to Boston College

Pine-Richland QB Phil Jurkovec Commits to Boston College

Four-star former Pine-Richland quarterback Phil Jurkovec was not in the transfer portal for long.

Jurkovec, who announced his decision to transfer from Notre Dame on Wednesday, committed to Boston College while on an official visit to BC on Saturday. Boston College was the only visit Jurkovec took while in the transfer portal.

A 6-foot-4, 227-pound quarterback, Jurkovec was a consensus four-star recruit and the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback in his high school class, according to 247 Sports composite. He’ll have to sit out the 2020 season due to NCAA transfer rules and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining, unless he can secure a waiver.

In his first two seasons at Notre Dame, Jurkovec played sparingly, attempting a total of 15 passes. He completed 12 for 222 yards and two touchdowns for a 219.1 passer rating. He was blocked from starting at Notre Dame in 2020 by the return of incumbent Ian Book.

At Boston College, Jurkovec was recruited by head coach Jeff Hafley, who replaced Steve Addazio this offseason. Hafley coached at Pitt from 2006-10 and has remained close with former Pitt head coach Dave Wannstedt. Hafley’s offensive coordinator is Pittsburgh native and former Pitt offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti, Jr.

Pitt and Boston College are not scheduled to play while Jurkovec will be at BC.

Is it a coincidence he went from arguable the most famous catholic school football program: Notre Dame. To arguable the send most Famous catholic school football program: Boston college. Yet i hasn’t seen 1 article anywhere asking about, is his faith is playing a role in his decision?

How can a young man make a decisiin so quickly?

Maybe he was given playing time assurances but one visit and its over?

Just odd

No. They won’t play them for a few years now. That had nothing to do with his decision.
