101 Days of BC Football: Aaron Kramer, #70


We’re going to be on the offensive line for a while here on the 101 Days, and today we have another local. Hailing from the South Shore of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is Aaron Kramer, a redshirt sophomore.

Kramer was recruited by Boston College as part of the incoming 2010 class, but sat out that season. Prior to his arrival at BC, Kramer played football for his hometown Duxbury High School. As a member of the Dragons, he made the 2009 Super 26 All-State Team and helped Duxbury win the 2A Super Bowl in 2008. He signed his letter of intent to play at BC on February 3, 2010, and if the figures given are to be believed, he has put on approximately 20-25 pounds since then.

He correctly assumed that BC would redshirt him in 2010, but the two-star tackle made his debut in 2011. Last year, he worked his way onto the two-deep as John Wetzel’s backup at left tackle, but the offensive line jumbled quite a bit during spring football in 2012. When the final spring depth chart was issued, Wetzel moved to right tackle and Kramer shifted to left guard, backing up fellow sophomore Bobby Vardaro. In the first scrimmage BC played this year, Kramer started at left guard in the absence of Vardaro.

We haven’t seen much of Kramer, and there is the possibility that between now and September, he could shift elsewhere on the offensive line. Being on the two-deep, he will probably make some appearances in 2012; the question is how many.
