With sophomore fullback James McCluskey sidelined with a broken leg, Boston College coach Jeff Jagodzinski had to reshuffle his depth chart again today, inserting sophomore Codi Boek as the new starter and switching redshirt freshman Dan Williams from linebacker.

Also, Jagodzinski said Steve Aponavicius would tentatively remain the primary field goal kicker ahead of Ryan Quigley, who will continue to handle the kickoff chores in Saturday night's game at Florida State.

"I moved Danny Williams to fullback from linebacker and we have Codi,'' said Jagodzinski before practice this afternoon. "Kicker, we're going to see who kicks the best and who kicks the best is going to play on Saturday.''

Boek, who transferred to BC last winter from American River Junior College, began the season as a quarterback and moved to backup fullback in training camp.

"It's unfortunate that James had to get injured,'' said Boek. "But I'm ready. And James has been talking to me a lot about doing the job.''

Wide receiver Clarence Megwa, who suffered a severely broken leg two weeks ago against Clemson, had surgery Tuesday. There were no complications.
