Official visit helps BC's chances
Nana Kyeremeh was one of three prospects scheduled to take an official visit to Boston College over the weekend. It was Kyeremeh's first time on the east coast, much less at Boston College, and the trip could prove to be decisive in his decision.
That's because Kyeremeh has only taken one other official visit so far. That trip was to West Virginia at the beginning of November.
It certainly sounds good for BC at this point.
"BC was really nice," Kyeremeh told EagleAction.com on Sunday evening. "The city was great. I got to check out the campus and I thought it was really nice. It's kind of small and the buildings are close so you can walk everywhere.
"It was nice meeting the coaches. They're pretty cool. They made everything seem straightforward. They didn't try to blow me up or anything.
"I expected it to be a nice school because one of my friends who had already visited said it was nice. I didn't really know what to expect because I had never been to the east coast."
The BC coaches talked to Kyeremeh about his timeline for making his decision and explained what life would be like if he chooses to become an Eagle.
"We talked defensive schemes and how everything works. They're recruiting me as a cornerback," he explained.
"I got along well with all the coaches. Their defensive backs coach seems pretty cool. I like how he goes about it. He's straightforward. He's not going to lie to you. He's big on trust so I know he'll be a guy I'll be able to count on."
How would the 5-foot-11, 170-pound defensive back from Worthington (Oh.) compare West Virginia to Boston College?
"The area around West Virginia is a lot smaller," he said. "With West Virginia there's not much outside life. Boston is a big city with other sports teams you can check out. You can go see the Patriots or Red Sox.
"West Virginia's campus is exceptionally nice but outside there's not much to do."
Kyeremeh admitted that he prefers the atmosphere and social life at BC and that could be a big factor in his choice.
"It's pretty much down to Boston College and West Virginia," he added.
Minnesota, Wake Forest and Georgia Tech have shown some interest but since they have not offered Kyeremeh said he isn't taking them seriously yet.
Initially Kyeremeh planned on making his decision on Signing Day but now he's thinking he would like to make his choice by the end of December.
While Thomas Worthington went just 4-6 this year Kyeremeh put up big numbers. He registered nearly 90 tackles with six interceptions, two of which he returned for touchdowns. He hauled in 20 receptions for 278 yards and a score, and he also blocked six punts, recovering and returning one for another score.
While BC is recruiting Kyeremeh exclusively as a cornerback West Virginia is saying either corner or safety.
