North Ft. Myers, Fla. cornerback Tre Boston made his decision earlier today. The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder was set to decide between North Carolina and Cincinnati. Where is he headed?
"I committed around noon to North Carolina," he said. "It was pretty much the fact I weighed the pros and cons. I sat down with my mom and coach and thought that North Carolina was the best fit for me."
Boston confirmed the Tar Heels coaches were happy with the news.

"Of course they were happy, I plan to call Coach Davis later tonight."
The decision comes just a couple weeks after a visit to Chapel Hill.
"The trip was just good overall," he said. "I liked the coaching staff and where the program is headed under Coach Davis. They are graduating all three players and they could have gone pro, but they graduated and are going after their senior year. They liked where they were at and I think they are going in the right direction to help put me in the league.
"I really like the coaches. They are down-to-earth and you can talk to them anytime. I felt like they are great men and that was part of my decision."
Boston has elected to try his hand at receiver first when he arrives on campus this summer.
"They told me that I can play either position and I'm going to start on the offensive side of the ball to fight for playing time. Later on I may make the switch."
