Aside from his rating, Dirstine is important for a few other reasons. He is a top local player. As I have written about recently, geography is critical in recruiting. While BC is building up a pipeline in various far flung outposts, they cannot ignore New England. Landing the Top Mass players shouldn't be a surprise. It should be the expectation.
Dirstine also builds the relationship with Lawrence Academy. Because they can recruit and use older players, Lawrence Academy is a growing regional power. Strengthening our connection there is a good thing.
Finally, we need to have a great OL again. Who knows if Dirstine will live up to the hype, but at least he has promise at a critical position. BC will never be great again without a great OL. Investing time and energy in elite OL prospects is a critical step in making BC great again.
