OL commit bonds with future teammates

Win Homer took his official visit to Boston College over the weekend and according to the Virginia prospect himself it couldn't have gone much better. The trip gave him a chance to bond with his future teammates and talk to the coaches that will have a hand in shaping in future.

Homer hadn't officially visited any other schools as he committed to the Eagles before the season and hasn't looked back since. He's rock solid with BC so it's also his last official visit, and that's fine with him.

"The weekend was great. To be honest, everyone told me before the trip the highlight would be the food and it was," Homer laughed.

"They fed us often and we probably ate more than is healthy. We were at all kinds of restaurants. Like nice restaurants. The kind of restaurants you wouldn't normally go to. (Saturday) night I got a porterhouse steak and a two-pound stuffed lobster, plus appetizers."

Homer said the food wasn't the only part of those meals that he enjoyed. Those meals were his best opportunity to interact with the other recruits that were taking their official visits.

"I probably got to spend more time with the players than the recruits," Homer explained. "My host was Ian White and in the apartment where he lives there's also John Wetzel, Harris Williams and Josh Bordner, a quarterback.

"It went better than I could have hoped it would. I got to meet a lot of people and they were all nice and unique. It's fun to be able to get to know people. Before I would have recognized their face from T.V. but I wouldn't have known them personally."

The 6-foot-5, 245-pound tackle from Christchurch School (Va.) said the coaches spoke to him throughout the weekend but only one segment of the trip was set aside to talk about football.

"One portion of the trip was for position meetings and Jim Cashman was the only other offensive linemen there. We got to sit down with Coach Devine and saw some film. He went over two plays with us, the inside zone and power. He talked about how they block it based on varying defensive schemes."

Homer said he might try to make the spring game next year, which several other recruits are planning to attend. His lacrosse schedule could complicate that so this may have been his last trip to the school before he enrolls next year.
