As a reminder, BC faces many challenges getting JUCOs admitted. However, grad transfers are not a problem. So Addazio has been aggressive about bringing them in. Even though few have been stars, most contribute and are low risk. If the player is ineffective or gets hurt, it only cost BC one scholarship for one year.
Lazard's transition to BC will be interesting to watch. He was a part-time starter at WVU, so he has elite level experience. Yet West Virginia's Oline operates very differently from BC. At West Virginia the Oline is nearly always playing zone. There is not much movement. Plenty of pass blocking and lots of spacing. At BC, Lazard will do more traditional, power stuff. If he adjusts, it should be a great learning experience.
I am sure this post will spark a few rebuttals regarding Addazio's misuse of the roster. In my opinion, leveraging 5th years is the smartest things Addazio has done. I hope Lazard plays well and looks like another coup.
