Without hyperbole, Drew Kendall is the top recruit from the state of Massachusetts.

As an offensive lineman, he doesn't receive the same amount of exposure that an elite quarterback or linebacker would, but he is one of the most complete players in the entire 2021 recruiting class.

Kendall attended high school at Noble and Greenough School in Dedham and won't be traveling too far to play in college.

In 2021, he will suit up for the Boston College Eagles.

Drew Kendall's offer list wasn't as exceptional as you might expect for a four-star player, but he still received plenty of interest from schools like Duke, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Penn State, Stanford, Syracuse, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Kendall has a great relationship with Boston College offensive line coach Matt Applebaum, and that  certainly factored into Kendall's decision.

The Wolverines were heavily involved in recruiting process, but the Big Ten club will finish in second place for yet another recruit. Instead, Kendall will be playing in the ACC.

Along with the opportunity to play for head coach Jeff Hafley, BC is special for the Kendall family.

Drew's father, Pete Kendall, played for the Eagles and spent 13 years in the NFL. Now, Drew will get the chance to write his own NCAA legacy at the same school as his dad.

247Sports is high on Drew Kendall's ability.

His athleticism and physicality at a brutal position make him a scout's dream and Kendall is the ninth-best offensive guard in the class. He has experience at defensive end and linebacker as well, but he has a better chance to dominate the trenches and help facilitate BC's offense.

Drew Kendall will follow in his dad's footsteps at his dream school.

Boston College is not an elite program, but if they keep attracting four-star signees, they will continue to make noise in their conference.
