Boston College offers Doherty's Yiadom
By Brendan Hall
Doherty junior wide receiver/defensive back Isaac Yiadom received a scholarship offer today from Boston College following a visit to spring practice, both he and his coach Sean Mulcahy confirmed to ESPNBoston.com tonight.
This is the first Division 1 offer for Yiadom to come from the FBS subdivision. Holy Cross and Bryant also offered the 6-foot-1, 170-pound Yiadom earlier this year, while UMass and Virginia Tech have also shown varying degrees of interest thus far.
Yiadom had an impressive 2012 campaign for the Highlanders, who reached the Central Mass. Division 2 playoffs. In 12 games, he registered 1,267 all-purpose yards and 13 touchdowns, to go along with 78 tackles and six interceptions on defense.
Yiadom becomes the fifth in-state player to receive an offer from the Eagles in the 2014 class, joining St. John's Prep running back Jonathan Thomas, Millis/Hopedale lineman Jon Baker, St. Sebastian's linebacker Connor Strachan, and Everett defensive back Lubern Figaro.
