Cardinal O'Hara's Thaddius Smith, a quick-footed junior wide receiver and defensive back, has orally committed to play at Boston College.
The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder chose the Eagles over runner-up Temple, Villanova, and James Madison.
Smith, who is projected to be a wide receiver at the next level, made the announcement at a press conference Monday afternoon at O'Hara.
O'Hara has two other Division I-A recruits in quarterback Dashawn Darden and running back-safety J.T. Blyden, who transferred in from Camden Catholic.
