That would be a shocker, given DT's recruitment is higher profile than some other juco's or transfers. But ya never know.

A freshman guard just left Zaga, so space available. Thornton has not visited here to date.

Yea, Greg Foster Jr. Just seen that. He was listed a guy that could play PG for them as well. I wonder was he pushed out because they want to make room for Thornton and another big.

Ship has sailed, it seems safe to assume.

BC is as irrelevant as you can get in major hoops. If it's an academic choice though it makes sense.

Maybe BC sold him on an opportunity to be a star there. They were guard heavy last year in terms of leading scorers and two of their top 3 guards are gone.

Per Jon Rothstein

Jim Christian's ability to put Jerome Robinson and Ky Bowman in position to be drafted in back-to-back seasons had a significant impact on Derryck Thornton's decision to pick Boston College, according to several sources

Zagoria

USC grad transfer Derryck Thornton has committed to Boston College, his father told ZAGSBLOG.
“Education and style of play,” Tank Thornton, Derryck’s father, said in a phone interview. “A Master’s from Boston College is a beautiful thing.

“And style of play. They play through their point guards and we’ve been looking for that since he left high school.”

Seems like the rare grad transfer who took his time to make sure he was picking a school that would benefit him both athletically and academically, can't fault him for that. Obviously I would have liked him in a Johnnies uniform but hopefully MA and staff get someone else soon.
