Boston College Football: Get To Know The Dudes - #20, DB Isaac Yiadom

Today, "Get to know" ... defensive back Isaac Yiadom

Name: Isaac Yiadom

Position: Defensive Back

Number: #20

Year: Freshman

Height: 6-foot-1

Weight: 170 lbs.

Hometown: Worcester, MA

High School: Doherty Memorial

2013 Stats: In his senior season as Doherty, Yiadom played both sides of the ball. As a running back he finished the year with 34 carries and 356 yards and four touchdowns. He also had thirty-eight catches for 880 yards and seven touchdowns. On defense he compiled 112 tackles, two forced fumbles and three interceptions.

2014 Projections: It'll be interesting to see if Yiadom gets playing time out of the gate, especially with the addition of UConn transfer Ty-Meer Brown. However if Brown struggles with getting back on the field, Yiadom who enrolled early could see the field at the nickel. I certainly don't think he will be redhsirted this year with the secondary depth being thin as it is.

How'd He Get Here: Yiadom was a 3* recruit who chose Boston College over offers from Virginia Tech and the University of Connecticut. He was recruited by Don Brown and Kevin Lempa.

Uniform History: Don Allard wore the #20 for the Eagles before being the #4 pick in the 1959 draft, which was the highest an Eagle was drafted until Matt Ryan in 2008. He ended up playing for the Boston Patriots, and in the now defunct Atlantic Coast Football League for the Boston Sweepers. Running back Tajh Kimble wore the number over the past few seasons.  Oh and Gerard Phelan, who may be most famous for being the receiving end of arguably the most famous play in college football history:
