Top OL still on BCs board

Mike McGlinchey was identified early in the recruiting process as an important target for Boston College. For a while the Philadelphia (Pa.) William Penn offensive tackle was in a lot of contact with the Eagles.
More recently, however, that contact has tapered off. That's not a sign that the Eagles' interest is declining. However, with the coaching changes the folks at BC are adapting to the new situation.
"I haven't been in contact with them a lot since the coaching changes," McGlinchey said. "I haven't spoken to them much since then.
"They're still obviously an option but I don't know what's going on with them. It's kind of hard to determine what my situation is going to be with them."
Ryan Day was recruiting McGlinchey for the Eagles.
"We had a real strong relationship," he said. "He was recruiting me since my freshman year, that summer. I've known him for a very long time.
"I had gotten really comfortable with him. He had a great opportunity at Temple and he took it."
Did Day's departure hurt the Eagles' chances?
"Not really. I don't think BC has hurt their chances at all," he said.
McGlinchey would love for the Eagles turn turn the heat up again but he knows that's out of his hands.
"I guess so but obviously it's their choice," he laughed.
So far McGlinchey has visited Virginia, Maryland, Rutgers and Boston College. Did any of them stand out?
"Not really," he said. "I don't think I've taken enough visits yet to be able to solidify any favorites or say anyone is standing out. Once I get more I'll be able to make a better decision."
McGlinchey said he plans to visit Duke on Saturday for their game against UNC.
