Oscar Smith (Chesapeake, VA) quarterback/athlete Greg Boone is starting to weed out the schools that are showing a lot of interest from the schools that aren’t showing consistent interest. Boone says “West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh, Michigan and UNC” are the teams that have consistently been in contact with him since September 1st.
Among those schools, 3 stand out as recruiting even harder than the rest. Maryland, Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech are very likely the frontrunners in this recruiting race.
“Those 3 are high because they are more consistently talking to me,” Boone said. He has taken unofficial visits to Maryland and Virginia Tech, but has not visited Pittsburgh.
Specifically, the coaches from each of the schools stand out to the 6-4, 250-pound state of Virginia star.
“For Virginia Tech, I like the coaching staff a lot and I know a lot of the players,” Boone said. His cousin, Robert Parker, plays for the Hokies. “For Maryland, I like the atmosphere and how the coaches treat the players. For Pittsburgh, I basically just like the coaches a lot. I talk to them a lot. I don’t know much else about them.”
Regarding official visits, Boone says “I’m going to try and take all of them. I’ll probably set them towards the end of the season. Hopefully I’ll make my [commitment] by the end of this year.”
In the meantime, Boone will finish out his senior season and plans on making some unofficial visits for games. He still plans on going to Virginia Tech for a game.
“I don’t know now,” Boone said, asked when he may make an unofficial to Virginia Tech for a game. “I’ll have to figure that out the next time I talk to Coach Stinespring.”
Once decision time comes, Boone will choose the school “where I feel comfortable and I like the environment.”
Boone, who plays quarterback and safety for Oscar Smith, has helped his team to a 5-0 record in 2004. He has tallied 967 yards in 5 relatively easy victories.
