Name: Christian Boivin
217 lbs.
High school: 
Traverse City (MI) West
Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: 
Last year: 
I ranked Boivin #113 and said he would be a backup running back (LINK). He transitioned to linebacker and played in eleven games on special teams, making 1 tackle.
TTB Rating:

Here’s what I had to say about Boivin in last year’s preview:

“When Boivin came into college, I thought for sure he would be headed for the safety position. He runs a bit like a linebacker but doesn’t really have linebacker size.”

Well, he played running back in year one, but last year he moved to linebacker despite being listed at 6’0″ and 204 lbs., which is very light for a linebacker. He was named Scout Team Defensive Player of the Week for the week leading up to UConn, and he was a regular special teams contributor all year long.

This year Boivin is listed at 217 lbs., which is a bit more reasonable for a linebacker. His chances of actually playing linebacker are still quite slim, but it’s fair to expect him to maintain a sizable role on special teams.

Prediction: Backup linebacker and special teamer
