Name: Jake Burt
Position: Tight End
Year: Redshirt Sophomore
Hometown: Lynnfield, Massachusetts
High School: St. Johns Prep
2016 Stats: Burt injured his knee last year, which prevented him from playing all season and in the Spring practices.
Projections: Burt is battling with Chris Garrison for the backup TE spot behind Tommy Sweeney. He will be used a lot in the heavy sets as a blocker. He’s near impossible to project though, since he’s been injured so much and only had one catch his freshman year.
Over/Under: 200 yards and a touchdown.
How’d He Get Here: A 3-star recruit, Burt had offers from Virginia, Brown, Harvard, Holy Cross, BC, and Old Dominion. BC and UVA were probably the best mix of academics and football, and BC had the advantage of being local.
You can see some of his highschool days below, where he displays good hands and balance as well as physicality as a blocker.
