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.
