Wash High’s Andre Porter De-Commits from Boston College
Class of 2021 Washington defensive tackle Andre’ Porter has de-committed from Boston College, he announced on Twitter on Friday.
Porter, a 6-foot-3, 300-pound lineman, played his senior season with the Little Prexies after moving from Washington, D.C.
Porter is rated as a consensus three-star recruit and is the No. 13 player in Pennsylvania, according to 247 Sports’ composite ranking.
Before committing to Boston College, Porter held offers from Illinois, Louisville, Maryland, UMass, Minnesota, Pitt, Rutgers, Temple, Toledo and Wake Forest.
Though he projects as a defensive tackle at the next level, Porter filled a number of roles for the Little Prexies, including occasionally as a running back, where he carried the ball 11 times for 81 yards and a touchdown this season.
Make him an offer, Duzz. We can sure use a short yardage RB.
Make Room for the 13th player in the state. Regardless of what you already have, if this kid wants to join Pitt, get him on board
While this young man has a solid offer list, it’s not 1973 where Pitt can bring in 85 scholarship freshmen. Pitt has recruited a terrific front four in this class already and also went Wisconsin-mode, recruiting 5 o-linemen plus TE Andersen, who may end up on the OL. Further, I believe this class is now at 22 and only 10 seniors went through senior day- and some of them could come back if they change their mind. In sum, normally I would agree with signing the 13th ranked player in the state if there’s mutual interest. However, unless the coaching… Read more »
Pitt has 22 scholarships opening up, just due to graduation and Paris Ford going to the NFL. Seniors that choose to stay for an additional year will not count against the 85. I expect they’ll take the full 25 players, though some maybe transfers and not freshmen.
Alan, Thanks for clarifying this rule. I re-read an article about Liberty withdrawing Miguel Jackson’s offer and now understand that the 2 d-lineman returning didn’t put Liberty over the 85-man scholarship limit. Liberty had the option of honoring Jackson’s commitment, but chose otherwise.
