Glens Falls' Joseph Girard III before the start of a game last season against Scotia at Glens Falls High School.

One day after working out with Jimmer Fredette, and three days since winning MVP at Dyckman Park in New York City, Glens Falls guard Joseph Girard III is on the move again.

Girard visited Boston College Thursday night, his second official visit. He took an official visit at Syracuse in late June.

Boston College is one of Girard’s “top six” schools he’ll consider signing with. Due to his busy summer schedule and football starting on Monday, it is unclear if visits to Duke, Penn State, Notre Dame or Michigan will occur.

Per NCAA rules, Girard is allowed five official visits, meaning the four-star prospect has three remaining, if he chooses to exercise them.

For most the summer, Girard has been trying to set up a visit to Penn State to throw for the Nittany Lions football staff. Penn State has not offered Girard in football yet, but that could change.

As the reigning New York state co-player of the year in Class B football, Girard also projects as a Division I quarterback. He holds football scholarship offers from Tulane and UMass.

After his Wednesday session with Fredette, Girard said he hopes to verbally commit prior to November’s early signing period. But even if the verbal does not happen, Girard is set on signing in mid-November.
