Atem Ntantang accepts offer from BC

7/26/2012

Boston College has picked up a commitment from senior prospect Atem Ntantang (Purcellville, Va./Woodgrove), according to multiple sources.

Woodgrove's program is just two years old. The Washington Post reports that Ntantang scored Woodgrove's first touchdowns and is set to be the school's first FBS player.

“Personally, it means a lot, because I’ve been able to be a part of a lot of firsts here, and this is another huge step for our program,” Ntantang said. “To be the first football player to sign D-1, it’s just incredible. I’m sure there are going to be more to come, but someone has to be first.”

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound running back/defensive back also received interest from Virginia, Columbia, Georgetown and Yale.

Ntantang, who rushed for 900 yards and 10 touchdowns last fall, is commitment No. 16 for Boston College during this recruiting cycle.
