OSU transfer Gill granted immediate eligibility at BC

Boston College announced Tuesday that Ohio State transfer Jaelen Gill was granted immediate eligibility.

The wide receiver will play for first-year Eagles head coach Jeff Hafley, who was the co-defensive coordinator of the Buckeyes last season. Gill has two years of eligibility remaining.

A four-star recruit in the Class of 2018, Gill was unable to crack the rotation during his two years in Columbus.

He played in six games as a redshirt freshman in 2019, catching six passes for 51 yards and a touchdown.

Gill was ranked as the No. 30 overall prospect in his recruiting class by both ESPN and the 247Sports composite. He was rated the No. 2 all-purpose back and the No. 2 recruit in Ohio by 247Sports.

Hafley landed the job at Boston College in December, replacing Steve Addazio who was fired after going 44-44 in seven seasons with the Eagles.
