DE Kevin Kavalec still strong with BC

By Brad Bournival

Boston College won’t lose out on Kevin Kavelec (Cleveland/St. Ignatius) after the firing of coach Frank Spaziani over the weekend.

The three-star defensive end, who led St. Ignatius to a Division I state championship last season and regional final appearance this season, is as firm as ever in his commitment to the Eagles.

“Yep, I’m still solid,” Kavalec said Monday evening. “I would like to see who the new coach is going to be, but I’m still a solid commit. I’m hoping some of the assistant coaches are still around. I never got a chance to know Coach Spaziani all that well.”

The only thing that has changed for Kavelec is the date of his official visit. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound senior was planning on making the visit this weekend but will hold off on that visit until a new coach arrives.

Kavelec has an in-home visit lined up with offensive line coach and running game coordinator Jim Bollman on Wednesday. He won’t press Bollman for information, either. Instead he’ll let the string play out.

“I just want to sit down, have some dinner and talk,” Kavelec said.
