Boston College cornerback Alex Washington has entered the transfer portal after four games with the Eagles, as the graduate transfer came to BC following four years at Harvard. By transferring after four games, he saves himself a year of eligibility that he can use for next season.
Washington was an exciting get for BC this season following a successful three seasons at Harvard (all of Ivy League play in 2020 was canceled). He played 45 snaps in the first game against NIU, but his playing time fell off drastically from there -- he only received 18 snaps from there, including just one against Holy Cross and two against Florida State. In his four-game career with BC, he finished with a pair of tackles and a 52.1 PFF grade.
In his three-season career with Harvard, the ex-Crimson back appeared in 27 games, totaling 57 tackles (including 34 in 2022) and six interceptions while last season he appeared in All-Ivy League and All-FCS teams, as well as a spot in the NFF Hampshire Honor Society. In the portal, Washington will likely try for a Group of 5 or FCS school in order to guarantee the defensive back playing time.
