BC High star Danny Abraham is certainly familiar with Boston College.

That's pretty much a given, and even before the Eagles offered the junior running back last week, he was very receptive to the idea of playing his college ball in Chestnut Hill.

"I first went (to Boston College) when I was a freshman, and I loved it there," Abraham said. "I loved the environment. Obviously, the colors are the same. Well, not this year, with (our) black jerseys, but I just love it there."

Abraham burst onto the scene as an almost overnight sensation, rushing for a school-record 385 yards in BC High's season-opening demolition of Andover. Not only did Abraham pile up yards, but he did so efficiently, averaging over 22.5 yards on his 17 carries, and breaking off multiple runs of 50+ yards.

He even showed off his arm, rolling out and hitting senior Kyle Burke for a 41-yard gain on a running back pass.

It's no coincidence that Boston College offered him just a week later. 

Last night, Abraham and the Eagles pushed their record to 2-0 with a 36-0 route of Central Mass power Leominster. While Abraham was held off the board, thanks mostly to Leominster slanting its defensive front at him every play, he still had a nice night, rushing for 118 yards, including two long runs that set up one-yard touchdown runs by his teammates.

Today, Abraham is taking a visit to Chestnut Hill, alongside a few of those teammates, for the Wagner game. BC is his lone offer so far, and that seems to be just fine with him.

"(Boston College) feels like a second home right now," Abraham said. "I hope them the best for the rest of the season."
