With Peter Leota’s size and blocking ability, it was just a matter of time.
Boston College has offered a football scholarship to the 6-foot-5, 285-pound junior, Asheville High coach Danny Wilkins said Saturday.
Leota was an All-Mountain Athletic Conference lineman for the MAC 3-A champion Cougars (10-3) in 2013.
He and Asheville open their season Friday at home against Hendersonville. Leota is listed on the Cougars’ roster as a tackle and nose guard.
Leota is the second current Western North Carolina junior to receive an ACC football scholarship offer – Wake Forest offered Reynolds’ Rico Dowdle back in June.
