Name: Austin Chapman
Position: Tight End
Weight: 235 lbs.
Hometown: Atlanta, GA
High School: Westminster
2013 Stats (HS): Served as team captain of his high school team along with Boston College teammates Sam Schmal and Cameron Seward. Played tight end, tackle and defensive end at Westminster. Also captain of the varsity basketball team and ran track.
2014 Projections: Not much is known about Chapman, a preferred walk-on from Atlanta, as he basically flew under the radar of the major recruiting services. He joins two familiar faces on the Eagles roster, as Al Washington grabbed Westminster teammates Sam Schmal and Cameron Seward in the 2014 class. Austin seems like the type of player that flies under the radar for a few years and the next thing you know, the coaching staff is awarding hard work and dedication with a full scholarship. For this season though, I'd be surprised if you see Chapman see the field as a true freshman.
How'd He Get Here: Austin joins BC as a walk-on from The Westminster School in Atlanta.
Twitter Feed: You can follow Austin on Twitter @ayoungchap88.
Uniform History: Boston College has a long history of accomplished guards that have worn the #63 jersey. Baltimore, MD's Dick Cremins was a two-way player at guard and linebacker and a stalwart lineman on the successful BC teams in 1962, 1963 and 1964 (the program won 20 of 28 games during his three-year career). Damien Woody also wore the jersey from 1996-98 before going onto a 12-year professional career with the New England Patriots, Detroit Lions and New York Jets.
