Oscar Smith (Chesapeake, VA) star Greg Boone set all 5 official visits recently and will begin his traveling this weekend, when he goes to Blacksburg.
“He’s going to visit Virginia Tech on the 10th, Maryland on the 17th, Pitt on January 7th, West Virginia on January 14th and UNC on January 21st,” Oscar Smith Head Coach Richard Morgan said. “He’ll make his decision sometime in the week after the UNC visit.”
Morgan believes that Boone is going into the visits with an open mind. Boone made unofficial visits to Maryland and UNC for games this Fall and has visited Virginia Tech before as well.
“He has no favorites right now,” Morgan said. “He’s going to go to the school where he feels like he fits in the best. He’s going to go where he feels most comfortable.”
A talented athlete, the 6-4, 250-pound Boone, who played quarterback and safety in high school, has the ability to play several different positions on either side of the ball on the next level. Where will he get his first shot?
“First and foremost, all of the schools are saying they are going to give him a shot at quarterback,” Morgan said. Boone could play QB, TE, FB, LB or DE. “If that doesn’t work out, it’s Greg’s decision from there. Where he changes to is his decision.”
Boone helped Oscar Smith to an excellent 2004 season. The team went undefeated during the regular season and its only defeat was in the 2nd round of the regional playoffs when they fell to Landstown 40-39.
For the year, Boone completed 82 of 170 passes for 1,310 yards, 21 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. He had 110 carries for 915 yards and 15 touchdowns and, in playing only half of the season on defense, accumulated 30 tackles, 2 interceptions and 2 defensive touchdowns. Boone missed a couple of games due to a hamstring injury.
Oscar Smith Junior…
A junior that is garnering heavy attention is 6-4, 260-pound DL/OL Brian Whitmore. Whitmore has one official offer so far, and it’s from Penn State.
“All of the schools that were interested in Greg are showing a lot of interest in Brian,” Morgan said.
