The most memorable Boston College Eagles quarterback to make they’re way to Chapel Hill in recent times is, without a doubt, Matt Ryan.

Leading the Eagles to as high as No. 2 in the nation, and making a major splash at the NFL level, Ryan set the bar for quarterbacks at the heights.

The one quarterback that makes Eagles fans cringe? Without a doubt, Boston College’s starting QB, Dominique Davis. But don’t worry Eagles fans, the Dominique Davis era won’t last much longer. Why? Well because Joe Boisture is coming to town.

So, who is Joe Boisture? Boisture is a four star prospect, rated as high as the 10th best QB prospect in the country, as well as the top junior, and will be part of the 2010 college recruiting class.

He is a 6′ 6", 205 lbs, pro style QB, with tools that recruits have compared to the likes of Drew Bledsoe. A prototypical three step drop QB, who will play with his face to the offense, but can also make things happen with his feet, showcased by what was reported as a 4.8 40.

The guys over at ESPN’s Midwest Recruiting Blog, offered up this report on Boisture:

"Joe Boisture (Saline, Mich./Saline) is a 6' 6" and 190-pounder who is more out of the classic dropback quarterback mold. Boisture has a strong and accurate arm. He sees the field well and makes good decisions.

Boisture threw for close to 1,600 yards and 14 touchdowns during his junior season when he led Goodrich to a 10-1 record. Boisture has transferred to Saline where he will play his senior season.

Boisture has scholarship offers on the table from Pitt, Wisconsin, Cincinnati, and Boston College. Michigan State is just one of the many other schools showing interest."

Now as a former Eagles alum, whenever the news of a top tier QB prospect committing to our program comes along, naturally I become excited. But I’m doing my best to try not to get my hopes up here.

As of yesterday (5/11) Joe Boisture was still verbally committed to Boston College; however, he has offers on the table from Kansas State, UCLA, Cincinnati, Central Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pitt.

Between his senior year and the 2010 signing day anything could happen, but Eagles fans, keep your fingers crossed on this one, because nothing will help a new coaching stuff look good like a top tier QB.
