Boone, who chose Duke over offers from Illinois and interest from Clemson, Virginia Tech, and South Carolina, admitted that while he had been thinking about playing for the Blue Devils, there was one issue he had to make sure of.
"Coach Cutcliffe told me that he's not leaving Duke for another job. He said he's here to build a program and he was sure he was going to be at Duke. I believe that."
As a junior Boone has racked up over 1,400 yards passing with 16 touchdowns, while also adding another four scores rushing. He is considered one of the top dual threat quarterbacks in the region according to Scout.com
