Eagles Lead for Duggan
Sean Duggan, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound, three-star linebacker from St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, will be taking his first official visit this weekend (Oct. 29) as he trips to Boston College. "Boston College is a very good program," Duggan said. "They have awesome academics and it's a Jesuit school like my high school." Duggan has visited Boston College before and says he likes the city and area a lot. "Boston is a great town," he said. "I've got a couple guys who went to my school (senior defensive end Alex Albright and sophomore linebacker Luke Kuechly) who go there and it's good to hear what they think. They really love it at BC." The first school to offer Duggan was Duke, who sent him a scholarship letter in March. "Duke is a great academic school too," he said. "The coaches there are cool and they've got a good thing going. They have some big goals and it's going to take time, but things are getting better there." He visited the Blue Devils during the summer. "I love the campus and all the old stone buildings," he said. Duggan, ranked as the No. 32 outside linebacker in the country by Scout.com, now favors Boston College slightly over Duke, Virginia, Michigan and Georgia Tech. All of his favorites have offered him except the Yellow Jackets. "They've offered me an official visit," he said about Georgia Tech. "They're recruiting me, but haven't talked about a scholarship yet." He says he also has offers from Cincinnati, Louisville, Illinois, Wisconsin, Oregon, Arizona, Ohio, Ball State, Michigan State, Minnesota and a few others. The only game that Duggan has had a chance to attend already this season was Michigan versus Michigan State in Ann Arbor on Oct. 9. "The Big House is crazy," he said. "You hear a lot about what it's like and how huge it is, but you don't realize until you're there in person." Duggan says he's very optimistic about the Wolverines' future. "They're gonna be good in the next few years," he said. "Very good…they're real fast." Growing up Duggan followed Notre Dame but says the Irish aren't recruiting him. "My dad and grandpa went there (no sports)," he said. He says he will make his decision about a college in January. "I'd like to take a couple visits in December and use Christmas break to gather my thoughts and compare everything," he said. "Then I'll be ready to commit in January." St. Xavier has a 5-4 record with Duggan amassing over 50 tackles, two fumbles recovered and two interceptions. "I move pretty well and I have a high motor," he said about his strengths. "I never give up on a play. I can read the play well and am good at pass coverage too." He says he can squat 380-pounds. "I want to work on my man-to-man coverage and some of the little things like technique and key reads...stuff like that," he said. Duggan plans to major in either english or marketing and reports a 3.8 core GPA and an 1180 two-part SAT.
