New, 4 comments

Get to know this freshman, offensive guard Jon Baker

Name: Jon Baker

Position: Offensive lineman

Number: #77

Year: Freshman

Height: 6-foot-3

Weight: 287 lbs.

Hometown: Millis

High School: Millis

2013 Stats: Not applicable

2014 Projections: Baker enrolled early at Boston College, but was injured during the spring practices. Given offensive linemen's propensity to be held off and redshirted their freshmen year, and with BC's depth at OL I would expect Baker to be redshirted.

How'd He Get Here: Jon Baker was the 26th overall ranked offensive guard in the 2014 class, and the #3 recruit in Massachusetts. He chose BC over Temple, UConn, Harvard, Holy Cross, UMass, Michigan State, Ohio, Old Dominion, Syracuse, and Yale.

Twitter Feed: Nope.

Uniform History: The first known varsity letter winner to wear the number was Mario Mazillo a tackle from 1952. Recently there has been a run of great linemen that have gone on to have NFL careers. The first was center Dan Koppen, who went on to play with the Patriots and is currently on the Denver Broncos roster. After Gosder Cherilus wore #77 before being drafted by the Detroit Lions and is currently on the Indianapolis Colts roster. Finally, Emmett Cleary recently wore the number before going undrafted, he is currently on the Oakland Raiders roster.
