Four-star Florida defensive end
Alex Boston returned from an
official visit to Maryland this past weekend.
"It was great. Couldn't have gone any better," said
Boston, a member of the Rivals.com
Southeast Top 100 team and the
No. 8 weakside defensive end in the nation. "I loved the people up there, I
really like coach (Ralph) Friedgen, and I could see myself playing there if
things work out that way."
Terrapins running back Mario Merrills played host to
Boston (6-3, 225, 4.6).
"We had a lot of fun joking around and talking about
stuff, both football and our personal lives," he said. "I could really relate to
a bunch of their players."
Boston's only other previous trip was to UConn in
December. He has a Jan. 17 date with Florida State. He said he plans to set up
his last two visits this week.
"I'm getting ready to take a bunch of calls tonight," he
said. "Mom said there was supposed to be a ton of coaches calling me back, so I
may have my last two visits set up soon."
Alabama, Florida, Georgia Tech, Ohio State and Notre
Dame are among the teams lobbying for those spots.
"I have no idea who will end up getting them," he said.
"It kind of depends on how I feel after I talk to everyone. It's pretty much up
in the air."
Boston had approximately 65 tackles and 12 sacks as a
senior at Bartow.
