Tagoe to go to the Tribe
Ivan Tagoe has been one of the most versatile and talented athletes in Montgomery County the past couple of years. Yet when it came time for college football programs to come calling, few paid much attention to Paint Branch's 6-foot, 205-pound defensive back, and that frustrated both him and his coach, Mike Nesmith.
Finally, after putting together an All-Met senior season and leading the Panthers to their first playoff victory in 34 years, Tagoe began getting some looks, and on Monday he decided to sign with William & Mary next month.
Nesmith said he still doesn't know why schools were late to recruit Tagoe. Over the past few weeks, Richmond and Rhode Island had also come strong after him with offers, while FBS programs Connecticut and Temple were keeping tabs, but no firm offers. Nesmith said, however, that it was just not worth it for Tagoe to wait and see if a higher-profile team would make an offer.
This past season, Tagoe made 63 tackles and two interceptions, while catching 54 passes for 809 yards and nine touchdowns.
