Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Smith athlete Greg Boone now has more than a dozen offers, but is making plans to cut his list very shortly.
“I don’t have too much of a preference with where I play on the field, but most schools are looking at me to play quarterback first,” admitted Boone. “I don’t have any favorites right now, but I plan to name eight or nine schools I’m looking at sometime this week.”
A 6-foot-3, 258-pound prospect with the potential to play any number of positions, Boone was named first team all-Southeastern District and second-team all-Eastern Region as a junior. Depending on which school you’re talking about with Greg, he could play quarterback, fullback, tight end, defensive end, linebacker, or safety at the college level.
Boone has written offers from Maryland, North Carolina, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Virginia, and Virginia Tech just to name a few.
“I’d have to say that Maryland and Virginia Tech are the two schools recruiting me the hardest right now,” explained Boone. “I like both coaching staffs and programs, they’ll both likely make the cut. Both schools are recruiting me as a quarterback first, but Tech has also talked about playing a number of other positions.”
Greg does plan to take his time with the recruiting process and an early decision is not expected.
“I’m about 90-percent sure I’ll take all five of my official visits before making a decision sometime after the season,” Boone said. “I’m looking at the strength of each program on the field this fall as well as my relationship with the coaching staff and whether or not they offer my major field of study.”
Last season Boone threw for over 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns. He added another 350 yards on the ground with eight scores. What plans does he have for the upcoming season?
“I don’t have any real personal goals, I just want to lead my team to a state title,” said Boone.
