Running back visits BC

It is still quite early in his recruitment but Darius Manora is excited about Boston College and it's definitely one of his favorite schools especially after he visited this past weekend for the Wake Forest game.

Manora got a good look around campus, talked to the coaches and now the Eagles have moved to the front for his services.

"I went down and watched the game against Wake Forest and I got a tour of the campus," Manora said. "Everything was pretty cool. This was my first trip to BC.

"They've been pretty much heavily recruiting me since the end of the summer. It's a great school and they're one of my top choices but we'll see how this season plays out and who else is on the list."

Manora is a 5-foot-11, 200-pound running back in the 2013 class from Alexandria (Va.) St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School who said Boston College, Duke, Rutgers, Stanford, Richmond, Holy Cross, William & Mary and George Mason are showing the most interest.

The Eagles have definitely made a good impression on him so far but he's not getting too excited just yet because Manora wants to take his time throughout his recruitment to see which other teams get in the mix.

"It's early right now," Manora said. "It's only my junior year and we'll see how they progress over the next couple years. So far, I like the campus, I like the coaches and it's a pretty good fit.

"It's still early but the coaches are really good. They keep me interested, they're staying on top of me and keeping me informed so that's what I like to hear."

In his sophomore season, Manora finished with 1,030 rushing yards and seven touchdowns. He averaged almost nine yards per carry.

Through four games this season he has 511 rushing yards and four scores. Manora can also play defensive back.
