Boateng back from MSU trip

Brooklyn (N.Y.) Lincoln wide receiver Nyan Boateng has been laying very low when it comes to recruiting, but he called to check in this week and let us know how things are going.
"I've been on two visits so far, I was at Nebraska on Oct. 1 and then I was at Michigan State this past weekend," said the 6-foot-2, 186-pounder. "I really loved Nebraska and what they have to offer there. The West Coast Offense is a great fit for me and the coaches are building something there. They have a great recruiting class already.
"Michigan State was good as well even though they lost the game to Ohio State. They play a spread offense that gets the ball to a lot of different wideouts and I am really impressed with Drew Stanton, he's awesome."
Boateng, ranked as the No. 99 player in the country and No. 12 at wideout, has three more official visits scheduled.
"I'm going to Southern Cal for Dec. 3, although I might end up having to cancel that trip," he said. "I'm going to Maryland on Dec. 10 and Miami on either Dec. 17 or Jan. 7. Those are my final five, I'm not looking at Penn State, Pitt or Iowa anymore."
Boateng is still recovering from a broken ankle suffered in practice before the season started. He plans on playing in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 15 in San Antonio, Tex.
"That's where I'm announcing my decision," he said. "Right now my leaders are Maryland and Nebraska."
