Oscar Smith’s star athlete may be narrowing his list very soon. Greg Boone , a 6-4, 250 pound quarterback who could play as many as four positions on the next level, may cut his list down within the next week or so. He has received 14 scholarship offers, including Maryland, Penn State, UNC, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and more.
Boone didn’t list any favorite schools but did say Virginia Tech and Virginia should each make the cut.
“I’ll probably narrow my list in about a week,” Boone said. “I think [Virginia Tech and Virginia] will both make it. I don’t have any favorites right now.”
Another team likely to make Boone’s cut is the University of Maryland, where he attended a summer camp last week. He has not decided if he will attend any more summer camps this year.
“I went to the Maryland camp [last week],” Boone said. “I had already met the Maryland coaches before, so I knew them. It was a good experience. They worked me out at quarterback. I had a chance to see where I was with my footwork. I’m going to be working hard this summer on my drop back footwork. They said my strengths were my accuracy and my arm strength.”
In terms of the two in-state Division I-A programs, Boone likes the coaches at both programs. He seems to know more about Virginia Tech at this point.
“I like the coaches,” Boone said of Virginia Tech. “I like that they stress grades before athletics. They also have a friend of mine up there…Robert Parker. That will probably have some factor on my decision.
“As of right now I haven’t really been able to see what Virginia has to offer. I have talked to the coaches and they seem nice.”
UVa likes Boone as an athlete, with quarterback and linebacker being the discussed positions. Boone says Tech “is mainly recruiting me as a quarterback. They haven’t mentioned anything else to me right now.”
In our previous article, Boone mentioned he wanted to make all of his official visits before he makes his decision. He says nothing has changed and still wants to “take my time.”
Boone had a significant improvement in his academics this past semester. He made the honor roll last semester, which puts him on the right track towards qualifying.
