Cardinal O'Hara junior football player Thadd Smith received an offer from Boston College on Saturday afternoon at the Eagles' junior day.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder also has offers from Rutgers and Temple. The fleet-footed Smith projects to be a slot receiver in college. In August, the Inquirer's Rick O'Brien rated Smith as the area's top player for the Class of 2014.
