Thomas’ Kyeremeh commits to West Virginia


Thomas Worthington High School defensive back and wide receiver Nana Kyeremeh verbally committed Jan. 16 to play football at West Virginia.

Kyeremeh, rated a three-star cornerback by Rivals.com, chose the Mountaineers from about a dozen Division I colleges. The 5-foot-10, 168-pounder had six interceptions, six blocked kicks and was the team's leading receiver with 20 catches for 278 yards as the Cardinals finished 4-6 in 2011.

He was named first-team all-OCC-Central Division and all-district in Division I as a defensive back.

Kyeremeh, who plans to major in engineering, made his official visit to West Virginia on Nov. 4. The Mountaineers went 10-3 this season, won the Big East Conference championship and defeated Clemson 70-33 in the Orange Bowl.

"I've been wanting to (commit) for a while now. … I think I'm really happy about it and I'm looking forward to the challenge it presents me for the next four years," Kyeremeh told West Virginia Illustrated.
