Juco OT Eluemunor rises from unknown

SCRANTON, Pa. -- Every morning, Jermaine Eluemunor would throw off his blue comforter and stare at the acceptance letter tacked to his wall.
That paper -- thick, off-white, splashed with the blue hues of Lackawanna College -- wasn't there to add decoration to the cramped room. It was there, in the spring of 2012, to serve as a reminder.
A reminder that, months before, he labeled himself as scared and unmotivated. A reminder that few of his high school essays hung beneath magnets on the fridge, since his GPA hovered around a 1.9. A reminder that nobody else wanted him. That college coaches never visited, that they didn't know how to pronounce his last name, that they didn't even know he existed.
But, most of all, that acceptance letter reminded him he still had the ability to change all of that. Which he, in fact, has done, racking up more than 20 offers in the span of a year. And not just any offers, but from the likes of Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Texas A&M and USC.
