Boston College Running Back Quin Stott Transfers to Merrimack

The Merrimack football team picked up a commitment from Quin Stott, a running back who was a preferred walk-on at Boston College this past season. Stott, a Newburyport native, originally visited Rutgers, UMass, UNH and UConn, among others. He had a scholarship offer from Georgetown last season before committing to the Eagles.

About one month ago, Stott announced that he was leaving BC and had entered the NCAA’s transfer portal.

According to longtime football writer Hector Longo in the Newburyport News, former BC head coach Steve Addazio also offered Stott a spot at Colorado State, where he was recently hired after BC fired him last month.

“I wished things worked out, but I have no regrets. BC is a great school. It was my goal to play at the highest level of D1 football I could,” Stott said. “I learned so much more about the game of football than I ever thought I could. I also learned what’s important and what I wanted to get out of my college football experience.”

Stott ran for over 1,000 yards and 18 touchdowns his last season at Governor’s Academy.

“Coach Curran sees me as a tailback and wants to utilize my skills in different ways — possibly running between the tackles, outside and in the receiving game — in the slot and on special teams,” said Stott. “I’ll do whatever the team needs me to do. I’m grateful for the opportunity.”
