Steve Addazio continues to stockpile big bodies on the offensive line. The latest, Chris Lindstrom, committed to Boston College in March and is already on campus as an early enrollee.
Lindstrom played high school football at Shepherd Hill Regional in Dudley, Massachusetts. Measuring at 6-foot-4 and 236 pounds, he's a bit undersized for a Boston College lineman and will need to put on some weight if he wants to play immediately. However, he's very quick (5.16 40-yard dash), which will work well in Boston College's rushing attack. Lindstrom was named ESPN Boston's Top Offensive Lineman in Massachusetts for 2014.
Lindstrom picked Boston College over a claimed offer from Old Dominion. The offensive guard joins Jimmy Martin, Nolan Borgersen and Elijah Robinson as grey shirts for this season. Like Jon Baker last year, Lindstrom will be brought in to add much-needed depth to an offensive line that is going to basically graduate everyone. If he can put on some weight and learn the schemes, I would imagine that he is going to find the two deep relatively quickly this fall.
Here are Lindstrom's highlights from Hudl.
Here are Lindstrom's rankings:
