Boston College senior safety Dominick LeGrande will leave the football team and has decided to transfer, according to Eagles head coach Frank Spaziani, who announced LeGrande's intentions on Friday morning.
LeGrande played in 11 games last season and recorded 21 tackles, forced a fumble and recovered a fumble. In three seasons with the Eagles, LeGrande had 69 tackles (45 solo) and one sack. His best season came in 2009 when he recorded 33 tackles (25 solo) and had two interceptions.
LeGrande, who was enrolled in the College of Arts & Science, was expected to be a starter at strong safety. With him now out of the picture, it's likely that Dominique Williams, a redshirt freshman, will step up in his place, as he is listed second on the Eagles preseason depth chart at strong safety. No word yet on where LeGrande will transfer to.
