Oscar Smith (Chesapeake, VA) quarterback Greg Boone made an unofficial visit this past Saturday to the University of Maryland. His one day visit was to see the Temple at Maryland game. Earlier this summer, he attended camp at Maryland.
“It was a great game and it was a live atmosphere,” Boone said. “I liked the atmosphere. I just went up to watch the game. I talked to the Maryland coaches before the game. They just talked to me about their quarterback situation and stuff like that.”
Boone’s next unofficial visit will likely be to an in-state school.
“I’m going to go to Virginia Tech too,” Boone said. “Coach Stinespring came to my first game. I haven’t been to a game there yet. I’ll look at their schedule and see. I’ll probably go and check out Virginia Tech in the next couple of weeks.”
Maryland and Virginia Tech are just two of the schools to have called the 6-4, 250-pound prospect. Since he has visited Maryland and plans on visiting Tech as well, are they to be considered the favorites?
“They are probably close to being the favorites,” Boone said, talking about Tech and Maryland. “Another one would probably be Pitt. I’ll try and go to a game there too. I’m still open to the other schools who have offered me. I’m putting everything on hold until the end of the season.”
Once his season ends, Boone says he wants to schedule and “take all 5” official visits. This month, he has heard from all of the schools recruiting him and continues to consider them. Penn State, Tennessee, UNC and West Virginia are just some of those other schools in the mix. Virginia has touched base as well.
Is UVa still involved?
Boone did receive a call from UVa Defensive Backs Coach Bob Price this month.
“Coach Price just asked if I was still interested in them,” Boone said. “I said yes.”
UVa is recruiting Boone as an athlete, with linebacker as the likely position. He claims most other schools, including Pitt, Maryland and Tech, like him as a quarterback with defensive end being another possibility.
Though the Cavs remain in contact and Boone says he is interested, it appears that Virginia is not among the favorites here.
