Ntantang isn't wavering, holds solid

Atem Ntantang wasn't happy to hear the news that head coach Frank Spaziani had been fired but that decision by the school's administration isn't going to sway him from his choice.

The Purcellville (Va.) Woodgrove athlete, recruited by Al Washington, committed to the Eagles in July the same weekend as John Johnson. He shared his reaction to the news with EagleAction.com on Monday.

"I was disappointed to be honest," Ntantang said. "Spaz is a really great guy. I got the opportunity to meet him on my official visit with my mother.

"What he stood for was what I was looking for. It's just how things go sometimes."

So is the 5-foot-11, 185-pound corner still solid?

"Absolutely," he responded. "I'm definitely with Boston College, along with many other recruits I'm sure."

Washington spoke with Ntantang shortly after the news broke.

"He straight up told me what happened," he recalled. "The number one thing he told me is my scholarship will be upheld and this shouldn't affect that at all. He was just encouraging me to stay committed. He's coming to my school on Wednesday so I'll see him then."

Ntantang registered 82 tackles (40 solo) and two interceptions this fall. He also forced six fumbles.

Woodgrove's season ended with a loss in the first round of the state playoffs.
