College Football or Pro Baseball?

While most kids have a very tough decision to make on signing day in February, some have even bigger decisions to make. That's the case with this talented defensive end, who claims offers from all 3 Florida schools. Read on to find out what he thinks of football vs. baseball as well as his thoughts on the University of Miami.

At 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, Bartow, Fla. standout defensive end Alex Boston is coming upon what should be a very difficult decision.

In addition to having to select a college in early February, Boston will also have to determine whether or not to persue a professional baseball career.

For now, though, Boston is focusing on his senior football season.

"We're doing good at 1-1," Boston said. "I have two catches for 18 yards at tight end. On defense, I have 12 tackles, four sacks, and one fumble caused. We're young but we keep getting better."

Boston, who carries a 3.2 GPA and will take the test in October, said he's enjoying the recruitng process so far.

"I've gotten lots of offers and phone calls," he said. "Everyone from Notre Dame to Alabama to the 3 Florida schools to Iowa, North Carolina, South Carolina, Boston College, a bunch of them. My phone pretty much rings off the hook every night. I really don't have any particular favorites because I haven't narrowed my list down yet. I'm still considering a lot of different schools."

Boston talked about the Hurricanes.

"I like Miami a lot but just as much as the others on my list," he said. "They have a great program and I'm also talking to their baseball coaches about an opportunity with that."

Boston, who claims all of the schools calling have sent him scholarship offers, has not yet scheduled any official visits. He also talked about his future in baseball.

"Baseball's great and everything and even if I get drafted, I really want to go play college football somewhere. If I skip that opportunity, I don't ever want to have second thoughts. All three Florida schools don't mind they said. After my freshman year, I could play baseball in the spring. Hopefully it can work like that."

Boston said he also has someone else that is trying to get him to pick college over baseball.

"My mom really wants me to go to college somewhere," he said. "That's real important to me so that's what I'm leaning towards right now."
