Tristan Marois wants to continue his career with the Boston College Eagles.
Back in Montreal at the end of his season, the Clearwater Academy Knights defensive end is juggling his options. He has received five offers for Division 1 programs, but only one so far that grants him a full scholarship. With the graduates returning for another season, purses are tight in the NCAA, even more so for a Canadian.
“Boston College is my dream school,” said Marois. Boston College offered me a spot on the team, but with no scholarship attached to the offer. In the FBS, schools do not have the right to divide scholarships. I can afford to compete for a position hoping that the situation will change in the winter session or for the 2022 season, which is not the case for everyone. We are talking about a sum of approximately US $ 20,000. “
“The Eagles are my first choice if the numbers make sense,” continues the Charles-Lemoyne Dynamiques product. I am awaiting my admissions response, and I have high hopes of being accepted, but also awaiting a response for academic financial aid. I will receive my answer at the end of December. The defensive coordinator noticed me because of my size and my speed. He likes my athleticism, but he wants me to gain weight. I’ll take care of that this winter. “
On Wednesday, Marois received a full scholarship offer from the Seahawks at Wagner College, a New York-based institution. “I consider that option a lot,” said the 6’6 ”, 210-pound defensive end. Robert Morris also shows me a lot of interest. They offer me a half scholarship with the possibility of a full scholarship as soon as there is one available. Mississippi State and University of Incarnate Word (San Antonio) also offered me a place. “
“A perfect place”
After a season with the Williston Northampton School Wildcats in Massachusetts, Marois transferred to Clearwater Academy. “It’s a perfect place to be recruited. Florida football culture is on another level. I wasn’t sure there would be a season in Massachusetts when I made my decision. I was protecting myself by going to Florida.
“NCAA teams don’t recruit in Massachusetts. I have had a really good season. It was difficult to run against us with a guy like Edwin Wilson Tara Kolenge (the Montrealer is already in the sights of several important programs in anticipation of 2022). “
