Boston College: Eagles pick up a big time commitment from 2023 DB Shawn Battle

Jeff Hafley and the Eagles coaching staff picked up a big time commitment last night from Shawn Battle, a cornerback out of Neumann Goretti High School in Philadelphia.

Battle announced his top five in March. The Eagles had made his final list of schools and he apparently committed. Last night.

Battle had 16 total offers and picked Boston College over schools like Penn State, Nebraska Arizona State, Maryland Cincinnati and Virginia.

At 5-11 175, Battle has the length to play outside but also has the quickness and the footwork necessary to play in the slot as well. Battle is a fluid athlete who runs well and has the closing speed necessary to cover in all three levels.

Battle can also be a factor in the return game as well which made him even more appealing to schools.

Battle is the 9th member of the Class of 2023 to commit to the Eagles. He is the highest rated commit in the class according to 24/7’s rankings.
