MotSaG Chat With Chris Agyemang

Standing 6-3 and 208 pounds, it is easy to see why Chris Agyemang can play multiple positions on the football field.  For his high school football team, he played LB, DE, and TE.  He is athletic enough to run with receivers in the slot and bat passes down, and then outrun linebackers and catch the ball when the ball changes possession.  While originally a 2015 recruit,  he is doing a repeat year and is transferring to the 2016 class.  He is also changing schools for academic reasons.  His grades are not bad, he told me, he just wanted a better challenge in the classroom.  He will be attending Proctor Academy in the fall, in New Hampshire.  Lots of schools have been showing interest including, Bryant, UPenn, (hey right up the street from my school), and Yale.  Camps that he will be attending this summer include the blue chip football academy, UPenn, UMass, and Bryant, and a few more which he is still trying to figure out.

Chris knows exactly what he is looking for in a school as well.  He told me that academics are more important than football.  “I look for the academics first than football second. I know football isn’t going to last forever so getting a degree is crucial for me. Next thing i look for is being able to help a team get better in any way I can!”  I always love when recruits care more about academics than football.  It is good to care about football as well, but you’re a STUDENT-athlete.  Student.

There is one offer that Chris really wants and that is an Ohio State offer.  He had good things to say about Ohio State, saying, “ I love the tradition Ohio State has to offer! They are a big time school and have produced BIG time players! Great fan base as well! Gameday atmosphere must be crazy!”   Chris knows that he has a lot of work to do in order to earn that Buckeye offer.  Although he does not have much interest from Ohio State right now, it has not discouraged him.  “I got to grind hard everyday for 365. An offer from OSU would be very special to me. But like I said I’m going to do what I can control and that is working hard on and off the field. Patience is a virtue.”  He has the right mindset to earn that offer.  He loves Ohio State and even offered this to Buckeye fans, “Buckeye nation Waddup!! Chris Agyemang, class of 2016 if you don’t hear from me this year wait till next year! Grind time! Check out my tape!” 

Hopefully, the extra year in school will do wonders for Chris.  While he is getting lower tier interest from some ivy league schools, he is determined for that Ohio State offers and the determined ones are the hardest working.  It will be interesting to see how Chris’ recruitment develops, especially with that extra year to get bigger and stronger. profile
