Ohio Picks Up Commitment From JUCO Tight End Brennan Boland

The Bobcats added a big bulky tight end to the their 2014 recruiting class earlier this week.

Frank Solich isn't known for being the prolific recruiter that Mid-American Conference youngin' P.J. Fleck is, but he is known for finding overlooked players that he can plug into his system and make work. See redshirt senior quarterback Tyler Tettleton, who was overlooked by everyone, and five years later is leaving as the greatest quarterback in Ohio Football history.

Sunday, according to 247sports.com,  Solich may have found another gem in the making on the recruiting trail by snagging a verbal commitment from JUCO tight end Brennan Boland out of Highland Community College in Highland, Kan.. He'll be a junior next season for a 'Cats team that has suffered several losses at the position over the past few seasons and is losing three tight end's to graduation this year.

Boland seems to have the makeup to be a surprise star, similar to current Ohio freshman Tareel Basham. At 6-foot-5, 250 pounds he has the size to be a force in the run game as a blocker. He also appears to be gifted enough athletically to be a factor in the passing game. Currently, Boland will be the only upperclassmen tight end on Ohio's roster in 2014 which means he should look to make an immediate impact for Solcih's tight end heavy scheme.

He doesn't appear to be ranked by any major recruiting services at the time, but according to Rivals.com he had some interest from a few big schools, including Arizona St. and Oklahoma.

Boland is the 15th verbal commitment in the Bobcats' 2014 class according to 247sports.com. He's the third tight end in the class too, joining 2-star commit Kyle Kuhar and 3-star commit Connor Brown, both of whom will be freshman in 2014.
