Western makes late recruiting splash with Boston College transfer

Looking to make an immediate impact, a Toronto, Ontario offensive lineman has made the decision to come back to his native country to continue his football career.

Eddie Meredith has opted to transfer to the Western Mustangs from NCAA Division 1 team, Boston College Eagles.

“The reason I decided to transfer at all was that I didn’t like my chances of making an impact in the near future at Boston College,” explained Eddie of his decision.  “Western offers me a chance to be ‘impactful’ on a team poised for success.”

“Their coaches and players are top-notch and I’m very excited to be coached by and compete with them. Aside from football, Western is a great fit; their business, humanities and law programs are all great and I’m going to have a tough time choosing between them.”

The 6’6, 295 offensive lineman played high school football for the St Andrew’s College Saints of the Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA).  In 2010 CFC had Eddie rated as one of the top 5 high school ‘big men’.

Mustangs head coach Greg Marshall is excited about Eddie’s decision to transfer.  “He is a bright individual who brings a lot to the table academically and athletically. Eddie will be able to come in and compete right away on our offensive line in 2013. His experience from Boston College will certainly help his transition to the CIS game.”

Offensive line coach Chris Bertoia now has another player to groom.  ““Eddie has a big frame, long arms, physical punch, and is very athletic.  He has a bright future, and we have expectations that he will have an outstanding career at Western.”
