Ready to travel

Palm Beach Central High linebacker Jon Bostic has all the intangibles that a high school prospect could ask for. At 6-2, 220 pounds, he showed in his junior season that has the size and speed to play for any Division I school in the country, closing the year out with over 100 tackles.

And don’t forget that football is in the Bostic’s blood, as his father played cornerback in both college and the NFL.

         

Of course, the nation’s No. 5 weak side linebacker is getting all of the attention that the size, pedigree and numbers could bring.

         

“Eight coaches came by for practice last Tuesday,” Bostic said. “Clemson even offered me right after practice was over.”

         

While the Tigers of Clemson are the most recent to come calling, the Tigers on the bayou have been hot on the Wellington native since the recruitment process began.

         

“I have been talking with the LSU coaches a lot,” Bostic said. “I talk with coach [D.J.] Mac [McCarthy] the most. He and coach [Bradley Dale] Peveto swung by to watch me practice last Friday and again on Monday. It was pretty cool seeing them out their both times, and they said they were really impressed.”

         

As for the in-state Gators, Bostic said that contact has not cooled.

         

“I am talking with Florida a lot,” Bostic said. “They came by earlier last week, ironically on the same day Florida State came. With the Gators, I have just been talking a lot with coach [Billy] Gonzales and coach [Charlie] Strong, and some with coach [Urban] Meyer.”

         

As for Bostic’s summer plans, the four-star is looking to take a number of visits.

         

“I am definitely making it to LSU again because me and my dad liked it a lot the first time we came,” Bostic said. “My dad wants me to make sure I check out everything before I decide, so I am going to probably visit South Carolina, Miami, Florida State and maybe even Georgia.”

         

As for now, Bostic said that he has no clear favorite.

         

“I can’t really say who I like right now because the only places that I have been are LSU, Florida and UCF,” he said. “I know that I liked everything that I saw at LSU, but I don’t know for sure until I see what everyone else has to offer me. Once I start seeing all these schools I can weed them down.”
