This shouldn’t come as a major surprise to most college football fans, but Troy Flutie, nephew of Boston College legend Doug Flutie, has committed to play football for the Eagles. The news was first reported on Twitter by EagleAction, the Rivals.com affiliate for Boston College.
It is presumed that he will join the team as a walk-on:

no big RT @carloscanto: Last year at Natick, Troy Flutie completed 68% of his passes for 3,153 yds and 35 TDs to only 8 INTs.
