The Spartans started the day off and he has been in contact with them regularly.
"I know that they've always been a great football program and I know they have outstanding coaches that develop great talent," he said. "I have a great relationship with coach Tressel. We have been talking for about a year now and it was really exciting that they offered me because I've wanted this offer for a while now.
"They're definitely one of my top schools right now."
Boateng says he wants to visit some schools including those who just offered, but does not have any dates yet.
"I want to commit before senior year, but anything can happen really, so I'm just going to take my time," he said.
