Sierra Vista (Ariz.) Buena running back Jamal Womble set up a last minute visit to Boston College last week and he's definitely glad he did. After taking several unofficial visits to schools all over the South and East Coast, Womble said his first official visits was his best so far.
"Oh yeah, no question, this was the best visit I've taken," Womble said. "I'm sure part of it had to do with this being my first official visit and the school being able to spend more time and money on me but I just really liked Boston College a lot.
"There wasn't a single negative about it, everything was great. I didn't have a game this weekend so I got there around 6:00 Friday and my host Ryan Lindsay and also Brian Toal took me around Boston.
"I didn't know what to expect but I liked Boston a lot, it's a cool city. I'm from back East so I'm very comfortable with the people there and the weather. Boston is a big city and I'm kind of a big city guy so I really enjoyed it there.
"Saturday morning, I met with some of the coaches and toured the campus and facilities. Then I headed over to the game and the team looked really good. They have a great game day atmosphere there. The crowd was loud and totally in to it the whole game.
"I like the offense a lot and the coaches were telling me on my visit that they graduate their top two running backs so I would have a chance to come in and compete for playing time right away. That's what I'm looking for so that was good to hear.
"Overall, I would rate the trip a nine. I can't give anyone a 10 yet because I need to take all my visits to figure out exactly what a 10 is. This was a great visit though, like I said, no negatives at all. I still plan to take the rest of my trips though and I'm not close to making a decision.
"Once I take all my visits, I'll be able to compare everyone to each other and make a well thought out decision. Boston College set the bar high and I'm looking forward to checking out Nebraska this coming weekend."
