Boston College Football: Get To Know The Dudes - #72, OL Jim Cashman

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Today, "get to know" ... offensive lineman Jim Cashman.

Name: Jim Cashman

Position: Offensive lineman

Number: #72

Year: Sophomore

Height: 6-foot-7

Weight: 298 lbs.

Hometown: Haddonfield, NJ

High School: Haddonfield Memorial

2013 Stats: Served as the team's #2 right tackle as a redshirt freshman.

2014 Projections: Cashman is probably still a year away from seeing some significant PT, but that's more a product of a crowded depth chart -- and a few key grad transfers -- than skill. As much as Spaz failed to develop the offensive line over the past few years, Boston College's offensive line recruiting never really fell off. Cashman was one of the most highly touted recruits in the 2011 class and will likely be a 2+ year starter at right tackle; a position that will be even more important in 2015 when the left-handed dual-threat QB Darius Wade takes over.

How'd He Get Here: A three-star offensive tackle out of New Jersey, Boston College beat out more than two dozen schools for Cashman's services; a list that includes Duke, Iowa, Louisville, Maryland, Miami, Michigan State, North Carolina, N.C. State, Northwestern, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Wake Forest. Ranked as the 14th best New Jersey recruit and 60th OT overall, in the 2012 class by Rivals. Recruited by Mike Dawson.

Twitter Feed: You can follow Jim on Twitter @bigcash72.

Tweetable: Nope, it's a protected account.

Uniform History: Several offensive linemen have worn the #72 jersey over the years. The number was worn by OT Jeremy Trueblood from 2002-05 before getting drafted by and playing seven seasons for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. OL Butch Palaza was a three-year letterwinner for the Eagles, captaining the team during the 1999 season. Both Ryan Poles (2006-07) and his father, Robert (1979-82), both wore the #72 jersey for the maroon and gold.
