BU Transfer Jake O'Brien Visits Boston College

Former Boston University basketball player, Jake O'Brien, continued his quest to find a home for his final year of eligibility today when he visited Steve Donahue and Boston College.The Eagles are one of several schools interested in the services of the 6'9 forward. Others include: Providence, Ohio State, Temple and Virginia.

O'Brien, who likely would have been the pre-season America East Player of the Year, decided to transfer after learning that the Terriers would not be eligible for the America East tournament this year because of their impending move to the Patriot League in 2013.

O'Brien is reportedly looking for a team that has a chance to make the NCAA Tournament, so BC may be a long shot given their youth (earlier reports indicated the Friars were the favorite), but he would make a terrific addition to a young Eagles squad that is desperate for front court depth behind Ryan Anderson and Dennis Clifford.

The Eagles finished this past season at 9-22 while using a regular rotation that included as many as seven true freshman, but showed growth in the second half of the season, including an upset win over a ranked Florida State team.
