Shepherd Hill junior offensive lineman Chris Lindstrom has verbally committed to Boston College, he announced today at his team's season break-up banquet.

And integral interior pulling guard in the Rams' vaunted "double wing" scheme, 6-foot-5, 240-pound Lindstrom was voted the Southern Worcester County League Player of the Year after helping the Rams earn the No. 1 overall seed in Division 4 Central. As a team, the Rams ran for over 3,000 yards and 36 touchdowns. Lindstrom was also named to ESPN Boston's annual All-State Team in December, and was a contender for its Lineman of the Year award as well.

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.

More details to follow.
