The college football season has (unofficially) begun! National Signing Day takes place on Wednesday, when high school recruits can officially sign their National Letter of Intent. Locally, we will begin to learn the fates of the Boston College Eagles, the UConn Huskies and the UMass Minutemen -- the only three Division I football programs in New England.
Boston College has 15 listed committed recruits as of Tuesday, according to Rivals.com. Among those 15 commitments, the Eagles have two four-star recruits, eight three-star recruits and five two-star recruits. BC's recruits have an average star of 2.80 (via Rivals) and the Eagles do not have a single Rivals100 recruit.
UConn's outlook isn't quite as good, as the Huskies do not have a single five- or four-star recruit among their 23 commitments as of Tuesday (via Rivals). The Huskies have 10 three-star recruits and 13 two-star recruits for 2012. While the Huskies already have three players who have signed their letter of intent, their athletes have an average of 2.43 stars.
UMass currently has eight players who have verbally committed for the class of 2012. Of those eight commitments, only one is a three-star recruits while three are two-star recruits and the remaining four are not rated, per Scout.com.
Plenty more updates to come as National Signing Day progresses. Check back for updates.
