Kadron Boone will be one of the many elite wide receiver prospects from the Sunshine State in the Class of 2010. Boone, 6-2 and 185, is from Ocala (Fla.) Trinity Catholic High School. They are 9-1 going into the first round of the playoffs this weekend against Jacksonville (Fla.) Episcopal. In 10 games Boone has 32 receptions for 937 yards and 11 touchdown receptions.
"I am doing good," Boone said. We are in the playoffs and back in action this weekend.
"I am a bigger receiver that can get off jams and use my size and strength. I do whatever the coach calls. I can go deep, short or I will cross the middle. I do need to work on my footwork, quickness and route running."

According to Boone he has scholarship offers from Florida and Bethune Cookman. This is simply the beginning for Boone.
"I don't really have a favorite team. I just love watching schools with a good passing game. Florida has an exciting offense. So does Texas Tech. I like Georgia and LSU's offense. There is some stuff that Auburn does I like. Ohio State, Clemson and some others I like to watch. Right now I think Texas Tech, Florida, LSU, Auburn, Ohio State, West Virginia, and Virginia Tech are some schools that I am interested in."
Boone is already thinking about the next level and what it will take to land him.
"First, they have to have good academics because education comes first.
"No. 2 would be the coaching staff. I want to find a place where I feel comfortable. I want to fit in, learn the system and get some playing time."
Boone has been to three Florida home games this season (against Miami, LSU and South Carolina). He's planning to go to Tallahassee for the Florida/Florida State game next weekend.
This is fun. I am really enjoying football and making sure my grades are right."
