Boyle looking at all options

Tim Boyle has been involved with Boston College for a long time and after seeing a recent spring practice the Middletown (Conn.) Xavier pro-style quarterback said he still has lots of interest in the Eagles.
"BC is very high on my list," Boyle said. "The coaches have done an excellent job talking to me and my family telling me where I stand and being honest with me.
"I have a lot of respect for coach (Frank) Spaziani and coach (Mike) Siravo who have been recruiting me and the whole coaching staff down there. I went to a spring practice a couple weeks ago and I was impressed with the whole offense. Coach (Doug) Martin has a good offensive system down there. Everything is looking good with BC right now but I just want to see where I fit with all the other schools."
Boyle said he has been mainly talking with Boston College, Syracuse, UConn and UMass and some SEC schools are also getting involved. The three-star likes the Eagles a lot but before making any decisions Boyle wants to investigate all his options.
"They all want me up for practice and spring games and they want me to come up to build relationships with the coaches," Boyle said. "I do want to contact the SEC schools that have been recruiting me - Florida, Tennessee and Auburn - I want to see where I stand with them and see if I can go to camps there or not.
"Lately all I've been doing is going to the weight room and trying to get bigger. I gained an inch and 10 pounds since the end of the season. I'm gaining some weight and getting ready for next season."
One reason some schools might not be offering Boyle is because he was injured throughout his junior season. But he's in the weight room a lot and doing everything possible to have an injury-free senior year.
Boston College is in good shape with the local quarterback but before Boyle makes a commitment to any school he wants to make sure he's considered all his options
"I really don't want to get injured," Boyle said.
"That would be really bad. I'm preventing injury right now by getting my shoulder, my legs and my upper body ready for the season. I need to be smart and not do anything that would put my body in jeopardy. I really look forward to a season without injury."
