Weight: 305 lbs.
Hometown: Dudley, MA
High School: Shepherd Hill High School
2016 Stats: Lindstrom started all 13 games at right guard last year
2015 Stats: Lindstrom played as a true freshman in 12 games, 9 of which were starts.
2017 Projections: After starting 22 games at right guard over the last two years, Lindstrom moves to right tackle. Steve Addazio spoke highly of Lindstrom’s transition to the right side when he talked with the Globe during spring ball.
“Chris is functioning at an extremely high level of tackle,” Addazio said. “Our right tackle play right now is very much elevated. He’s very athletic, and we put our best players in the best position to help us.”
There might be no other player that Addazio has spoke highly about during his time here than Lindstrom. When Lindstrom was a freshman, Addazio declared that he would be a great player. Addazio has also called him a future pro before too.
While Addazio was well ahead of the curve for his praise of Lindstrom it appears the rest of America is catching up. Phil Steele has Lindstrom on his 3rd team All-ACC team and other publications are speaking high about the Massachusetts native.
How'd He Get Here: While Lindstrom was a top performer in Massachusetts at the Central Mass powerhouse program Shepherd Hill. However, his only other reported offer was from Old Dominion. The guard was ranked as a three-star player by both 247 Sports and Rivals. Al Washington was the lead recruiter for Lindstrom and was a big reason why he chose BC.
