Oscar Smith (Chesapeake, VA) has had one of its better season’s in school history this year, going 10-0 in the regular season and earning a #1 seed in the Eastern Region Division 6 playoffs. A big part of its success has been the play of senior Greg Boone, who plays quarterback and strong safety for the Tigers.
“I’m a lot more focused this year than I was last year,” Boone said. “I’ve focused on getting the team ready for each game. I worked hard on my mechanics this summer and I trust in my team.”
Boone has not thought much about recruiting during his senior season. Once his season comes to an end, then he’ll begin concentrating more on where he will be for the next 4/5 years.
“I’m going to try and narrow down my list after the season is over,” Boone said. “Then I’m going to get my visits in order. I plan to take all 5 official visits.”
The schools in contention include Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and West Virginia. Boone indicated that Maryland, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and West Virginia are the teams “that really talk to me every week.”
While Boone will not make official visits until after the playoffs are over, he does plan on making an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech for the game against UVa on November 27th. He has already been to a game at the University of Maryland and attended UNC’s home victory over Miami. He called the UNC experience “good. I liked the coaches. It was a live atmosphere and a big game.”
Does the fact that these schools are the only ones to get unofficial visits signify anything in terms of favorites?
“No,” Boone said. “The schedule just worked out that way. I don’t really have any favorites right now.”
Of Virginia Tech, Boone likes the following…
“They are close,” Boone said. “I like the coaching staff. I like the players and it’s a good program.”
Oscar Smith plays Granby on Friday night at 7:30 in the first round of the playoffs. Granby features quarterback and UNC commitment Bobby Rome and top junior wide receiver Chris Bell. Oscar Smith defeated Granby earlier this year 27-6.
