Alex Boston, a four-star rivals.com prospect, made his first official visit to Connecticut over the weekend. Last night, Rivals.com caught up with the Bartow (Fla.) native to discuss his visit up North and to talk about some other recruiting matters.
“My visit went very well, and I enjoyed myself very much,” the 6-foot-3 and 225 pound weak-side defensive end said. “Connecticut has very good academics, and the professors really care about their student athletes. At the game, I saw one of the professors at the game, and I got to chance to talk with him a bit”
Boston, a possible high draft pick this summer in the Major League Baseball, got a chance to tour the UCONN campus and check out their business department. He also got to eat plenty. Some of the food he ate there was steak, lasagna, lobster green beans and mash potatoes.
Where does UCONN stand with the Rivals100.com No. 8 rated weak-side defensive end in the country?
“They’re right up there with the rest of the schools on my list," Boston said. “I would rate my trip to Connecticut as a good eight on a scale of 10.”
Right now, Boston is in the process of setting up official visits in January with Maryland and Florida State. He is also considering trips to Miami, Alabama, Ohio State, Iowa, and Florida.
This week, he’ll have coaches from Connecticut, Florida and Florida visiting his home.
