Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Isaac Yiadom

Position: Defensive Back

Number: #20

Year: Sophomore

Height: 6-foot-1

Weight: 184 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 Statistics: According to his statistics on, Yiadom played 127 snaps on special teams, and had one pass break up against Wake Forest.

2015 Projections: John Johnson will have one corner position locked down, but the other corner could be a spot for Yiadom if he earns it in summer ball. There is always the possibility that Justin Simmons is moved to corner (something that has been talked about), but if he isn't and stays at his natural position at safety, then it will be between Kamrin Moore, Cam Seward and Atem Ntantang.

Over/Under: One interception

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:
