Just one month ago, Dickinson (TX) 2021 offensive lineman Canon Boone was simply hopeful of receiving a college scholarship offer. He now has four, which has him anxiously waiting to see which options will present themselves next.

Virginia Tech and Nevada most recently made Boone an offer, joining Texas-San Antonio and Dartmouth, as his recruitment continues to gain momentum.

“I talked to him a little while ago and I don’t remember a lot,” Boone said. “But he called my coach and told him about the offer. My coach informed me I had the offer.”

In the meantime, Boone said he’s planning on checking out some options closer to home. On Sunday, he’ll visit Houston for a junior day, and next month he plans to do the same at UTSA. Boone said he’s looking into getting to
