 Cardinal O'Hara's Thaddius Smith, a quick-footed junior wide receiver and defensive back, orally committed to play at Boston College in a Monday afternoon press conference.

"I like everything about the school - the academics, the city, the campus, the coaches," the 5-foot-11, 175-pounder said. "Coach [Steve] Addazio recruited me the hardest of anybody."

Smith, a three-star recruit according to Rivals.com, chose the Eagles over runner-up Temple. He also received interest from James Madison, Massachusetts, Rutgers, Toledo, and Villanova.

The 17-year-old from Aldan is projected to be a slot receiver in college. "I think it suits me the best," he said. "With my speed and athleticism, I'm confident about making plays in the open field."

Smith said he visited Boston College in late January.
