'24 TE Benjamin Blackburn flips commitment from BC to Stanford

'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."
