Chris Coleman: Except perhaps offensive line, I think star rankings for linebackers matter less than any other positions. Being a good linebacker requires that you have a high football IQ, and you have to be extremely tough. Both of those things can be very difficult to judge at the high school level because college recruits are so much better athletically than their peers.

For BC, the key is to be really good evaluators of talent and toughness, and to provide a culture that develops toughness in their players once they reach the college level. If they do both of those things, the likely result is good linebacker play. Let’s look at BC’s current starters using the 247Composite ratings and their listed P5 offers…

Connor Stratcham, Needham, MA: Upper level 3-star prospect, #381 overall prospect in the country. Offers from UVA and Wake Forest.

Ty Schwab, Merritt Island, FL: Lower level 3-star prospect, #1247 overall prospect in the country. Offer from Maryland.
