Boston College last week had said Raji would be ineligible due to academic reasons.
``B.J. now has the opportunity to take a negative and turn it into a positive,'' Coach Jeff Jagodzinski said Friday, adding that the extra year would help Raji gain football experience and work toward his goal of graduation.
Last season Raji, 6-1, 325 pounds, had 23 tackles, including 8.5 for a loss. He had two sacks, forced one fumble and broke up three passes. He made the all-Atlantic Coast Conference second team.
The 21-year-old had started in 24 of the Eagles' last 25 games.
