Homer Heads to BC

Homer Heads to BC

Christchurch (Va.) offensive lineman Win Homer informed Scout.com that he verbally committed to Boston College.

Christchurch (Va.) offensive lineman Win Homer will head to Boston College, the first school to offer him a scholarship.

"He committed yesterday," his father Ed Homer said. "They showed they really wanted him and they were the first to offer him."

Homer made his decision just weeks before he planned to re-visit the campus this June.

"He was going to wait until he visited June 18, but he walked in last night and said, I am ready."

His final list also included Virginia Tech and Virginia; however the 6-foot-4, 240-pound offensive tackle was hooked on the city environment, quite a contrast to his upbringing in Christchurch, says pop. Not to mention, most of his family resides in Boston, which was the biggest draw.

"He has been a number of times to visit his family up there and he loved it. See, he didn't get out of the peninsula much at Christchurch since it's a boarding school and being in Boston is a different environment compared to the country."

Homer will redshirt his freshman year, his dad said. "He is looking forward to redshirting and spending time with the strength coach and really developing his size and power, but this is a huge weight off his shoulder, he told us.."
