'24 tight end Benjamin Blackburn flipped his commitment from Boston College to Stanford Thursday, as it's yet another loss for next year's recruiting class.
The 6-foot-6 three-star recruit out of Christopher Columbus (Florida) was one of two tight ends in the '24 class for BC. It's been an eventful past week for BC recruiting -- Cedric Lott Jr. recommitted after decommitting the day before though both Josiah Martin and Desman Stephens also decommitted from the program.
"I will be de-committing from @BCFootball but want to thank the BC Staff for their support through the process. With that being said, after receiving an offer from @StanfordFball I am excited to announce that I am 1000% COMMITTED and my recruitment is closed!," Blackburn posted Thursday.
247 Sports' AJ Black reported that Blackburn grew up a fan of the Cardinal and flipped once he got an offer from them.
"According to sources, Blackburn has viewed Stanford as one of his dream schools, and was a childhood fan of the Cardinal," wrote Black. "Also, one of his best friends is on the team. He has become a hot commodity over the past few weeks grabbing interest from Texas A&M and Utah, and even then he stuck with Boston College. But an offer from Stanford was the one he was waiting for, and decided to flip."
