Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville is one of the more well known high school football programs in the Midwest, and with that, they annually churn out BCS level talent. While Boston College does not regularly go into Glenville for talent, defensive lineman Alex Pace has recently caught their attention, and in turn, Pace is also taking a long look at the Eagles.
"Recruiting is real good," said Pace, who is 6-foot-2 and 284-pounds. "A lot more BCS schools are starting to recruit me. Pitt was the last to offer, but I know I have a lot more on the way."
Aside from Pittsburgh, Pace also has offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Syracuse, West Virginia, Air Force and most of the MAC programs. Recent interest has also come in from Boston College, Maryland, Ohio State, South Florida and Hawaii. With BC being relatively new to the party, he was asked about their level of interest.
"They have wanted to offer me, but they just want to talk to my doctor to check up," said Pace. "I messed up my leg at the end of last season, but it's ok now. They've seen me play and everything, so they're just checking."
While BC has yet to offer, Pace has definitely thought about the possibility of playing for the Eagles.
"Yeah, I have thought about it," said Pace, who is looking for a school with a strong civil engineering program. "I like the way they play and I like how they let their defensive line get after the ball."
So far this fall, Pace has taken a visit to Ohio State, but has no further visits planned at this time.
On the field, Pace is happy with how his senior season is progressing.
"It's going great and I'm just getting ready for my big game,'" said Pace, referring to this weekend's game against Cleveland St. Ignatius. "I'm playing defensive tackle, and I think I'm playing smarter than I did last year. I know what's going on and how to get to the ball better."
