CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – Boston College football head coach Jeff Hafley announced the addition of offensive lineman Drew Kendall to the 2021 recruiting class for the Eagles.

Kendall is the top recruit in the recruiting class and the second ESPN 300 recruit for the Eagles in this class. He is the top-ranked recruit in Massachusetts and a Top-100 recruit nationally.

“There is a reason Drew is ranked the top player in the state of Massachusetts,” said Hafley. “He is smart, tough, talented and his potential is through the roof. Drew will be a force in the ACC and college football.”

The 2021 recruiting class for the Eagles is currently ranked 32nd by 247 Sports, which ties for the best ranking in school history. ESPN already rated BC’s class as its best-ever before Kendall’s signing.

The recruiting class covers 10 states, the District of Columbia, and has an international flavor with one signee from Serbia.
