Chris Lindstrom commits to Boston College Eagles


Boston College Eagles’ head coach Steve Addazio was known as one of the best offensive line coaches in the country under Urban Meyer at Florida.

Addazio wants to build his team from the inside out and knows his offensive line was a huge reason running back Andre Williams won the Doak Walker Award and was a Heisman contender and why the Eagles went 7-6 and returned to a Bowl Game this season.

On Sunday, Addazio added to his offensive line, getting a commitment from offensive lineman Chris Lindstrom.

Brendan C. Hall of ESPN Boston has the scoop.

The Eagles offered Lindstrom last December, just a few weeks after he received his first Division 1 FBS offer from transitional program Old Dominion. He is the first in-state commit for BC head coach Steve Addazio’s 2015 recruiting class. Kansas State, UConn, UMass and a slew of FCS programs had also inquired about Lindstrom with varying degrees of interest.

Lindstrom’s father, Chris Sr., is the head coach of Shepherd Hill, and a Hall of Famer at Boston University. He spent three seasons in the NFL from 1983-87 with the San Francisco 49ers, Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The 6’5, 240-pound Lindstrom from Dudley, Massachusetts is not yet ranked by 24/7 Sports.
