The 6-10 senior big man, who is still working his way back from a foot injury that sidelined him for much of his junior campaign, knows he hasn't played up to par of late.
``I was on a roll up until the injury," Boateng said. "I was in a groove and it's taking me a long time to get back into it. I feel like I'm rebounding well, but I'm not scoring as much as I'd like to."
``He's struggling," Delaware Sharpshooters coach Duane Coverdale said. "I don't know what it is, maybe his confidence is a little shaken up. In the end, he's still one of the best centers in the nation and he'll get through it." Boateng is en route home to spend a few weeks with his family in England and will talk to them about his college decision. He was leaning towards committing to Duke a few weeks ago and the Blue Devils still lead – but now he's also contemplating taking official visits to Georgia Tech and Boston College upon his return.
``I'm going to talk to people around me, my parents and family," he said. "That'll help me sort things out. I might end up taking visits. I need to think about that."
``I just want to go somewhere where I can develop," Boateng added. "Right now I'm not where I want to be. I'm confident it'll come, but I want to go to the place where I'll develop the most. That's what I need."
Boateng still needs to get stronger and more aggressive on the offensive end, but coaches from major programs, including Duke, see his potential.
``As much as I don't like to say that I'm new to the game, I guess I am," Boateng said.
