Shitta Sillah and Andre Hines Enter the Transfer Portal out of Boston College
On Monday, two Boston College football players announced their intentions to enter the transfer portal: defensive lineman Shitta Sillah and running back Andre Hines. Sillah was a three-star recruit coming out of high school in 2019 and a promising pass rusher, but never really blossomed as an Eagle. After getting some playing time his sophomore and junior seasons, he started to make an impact in the pass rush. Sillah looked like he was going to be an impact veteran on the defensive line before an injury took him out for the entire season in 2022. He never quite returned to form in 2023 and the Boston College pass rush was a weaker unit than they were projected to be.
