#AskLoogs: Wade can jump in at BC

1/17/2014

Want to ask ESPN RecruitingNation senior analyst Tom Luginbill a question about your team? Tweet it to @TomLuginbill using the hashtag #AskLoogs.

Talented enough? Yes. Experienced enough? No. The competition for the starting quarterback job at BC is going to be wide open and Steve Addazio without question wants more athleticism under center. This gives everyone in contention a chance, including the three-star Darius Wade (Middletown, Del./Middletown), who has already on campus as an early enrollee. Wade is a more dynamic player than BC has had in the past. If Wade were bigger, he would likely have received more attention in recruiting. Tyler Murphy, a Florida transfer, will bring some live-game experience to the Eagles, which gives him a leg up in the competition, and I would anticipate he’d be the player to beat. It can be an awfully steep learning curve for true freshmen to play right away, especially quarterbacks. Wade might have more of a steep curve, as there will be a serious adjustment in level of competition.
