Four-star Florida DE gets new offer

Four-star Bartow (Fla.) prospect

Boston has a new offer from one of his favorite schools.
"Notre Dame called this past week and said they were offering me a scholarship,"
said the 6-foot-3, 220-pound defensive end/tight end. "I was really happy about
that. That's definitely one of the places I'd like to take one of my visits."
Boston, a member of the
Rivals.com Florida Top 100
team and one of the
top-rated
weakside defensive ends in the nation, said he has also received calls
from Miami, Florida, Florida State, Alabama, Ohio State, Air Force, Iowa and
UConn within the last two weeks.
"I don't really have my top five down yet," he said. "I'm going to take my test
again in October, and after we find out how I did, I'm going to sit down with my
mom and try to figure out where the best places are for me."
Boston sports a 3.3 GPA, so he said he's confident he'll score high enough to
qualify. "Without a doubt," he said.
In the meantime, he's trying to juggle unofficial visits for games and his
continued pursuit of baseball, for which he's also one of the state's top
prospects.
"I went to the Miami-Florida game on Saturday," he said. "I was really impressed
by both teams. They showed me a lot, that they're both striving to be No. 1.
Even though Miami pulled away and won the game pretty big, I liked the way
Florida handled themselves and how the coaches kept pushing them to work hard."
He doesn't have any other game trips on the calendar at this point.
"No games coming up because I've got a big baseball showcase in Las Vegas," he
said. "I've got to try and get my swing back before that."
On the football side of things, Boston is coming off a six-tackle, three-sack
performance last week in Bartow's second game of the year. "We got rained out in
our first game, if you can believe that," he said with a laugh. "Rained out a
football game... you wouldn't believe how hard it rained to do that."
