Spartans In Contact

Just a month removed from posting one of the best forty times at any combine in the country. Ohio defensive back Nana Kyeremeh has seen college programs from across the country get in contact. Michigan State has joined the ever growing group looking to learn more about the Central Ohio native.

Speed, it is something you can improve upon but not teach. Natural speed is something football coaches from across the country dream of finding and for Worthington (Ohio) Thomas Worthington High School defensive back Nana Kyeremeh, he has plenty to burn.

Having posted a 4.3 forty during the MSR Ohio Combine, Nana saw Boston College, Toledo and Akron jump on board with scholarship offers. Also making contact was Michigan State who stopped by to see Nana's high school coach.

"My coach told me that Coach Tressel from Michigan State stopped by and picked up a copy of my highlights. When I spoke with Coach Tressel, he told me about Michigan State and that they have their spring game coming up this weekend."

While Nana would love to make a visit to East Lansing, he also has other commitments to keep.

"I will not be able to attend the spring game because I have a track meet on Saturday. However, I will look to visit sometime this summer as I may attend their camp. I have already planned on going to a camp at Michigan, so I might look at going over there when I am up there."

At just under 5-foot-11, and weighting 165-pounds, Kyeremeh may be on the light side; however, you cannot discount his speed. Nevertheless, Nana knows there is still work needed to his game.

"I need to get quicker out of my breaks and with my cuts. I have speed, but I must be able to recognize what the receiver is doing so I can jump more routes. I have been playing safety in high school and for me to play corner I will need to work on these things."

Can Nana pick up an offer from the Spartans in the future? Time will tell, however, Spartan Digest will continue to check back with the talented defensive back.
