Name: Curt Bletzer

Position: Linebacker

Number: #43

Year: Redshirt Freshman

Height: 6-foot-1

Weight: 192 lbs.

Hometown: Medfield, MA

High School: Catholic Memorial

2016 Stats: Curt was redshirted in 2016.

2017 Projections: Boston College has some good depth already at linebacker going into 2017 with Ty Schwab, Connor Strachan, Sharrieff Grice, Max Richardson and older brother Kevin Bletzer ahead of Curt on the depth chart. Unless he blows the other talent away, or there are injuries this year, I wouldn’t expect to see much of Curt.

How'd He Get Here: Curt was a two star athlete in 2016 out of Catholic Memorial in Massachusetts. He chose Boston College over other offers from Maine, Holy Cross and Harvard.

Curt On His Commitment to Boston College: "I couldn't believe it when they offered - I was so excited to get it," said Bletzer. "Growing up (in Medfield), I would go to all of their football and hockey games with my family (the Bletzer family is from Brighton) and I always dreamed to being able to go there."
