CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Former Harvard standout Nick Easton has signed an undrafted free agent contract with the National Football League's Baltimore Ravens.

In addition to his third team AP FCS All-America recognition, Easton, a center, was named to the FCS North All-America first team and New England Football Writers' Associate All-New England team. He participated in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl and was named to the All-Ivy League first team for the second-consecutive season.

A native of Lenoir, North Carolina, Easton started all 10 games last season and helped Harvard rank among the nation's best in several statistical categories, including 14th in rushing offense (230.5 yards per game) and 18th in completion percentage (.643).

"As a result of a tremendous work ethic and sheer will, Nick Easton probably improved more than any other kid I've been around during his career at Harvard," said Tim Murphy, The Thomas Stephenson Family Head Coach for Harvard Football ."In the process, he became a legitimate NFL caliber offensive lineman."

Kyle Juszczyk, a former Crimson standout, is also a member of the Baltimore Ravens and is the team's starting fullback.

The Crimson posted its 17th perfect season in 2014, going 10-0 overall and 7-0 in conference play to capture its 16th Ivy League title, including its eighth under Murphy. The Crimson also defeated Yale for a program-record eighth-straight time.
