Standout DE Remains Open

This talented defensive end prospect provides an update on the recruiting process in this interview.

At 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds, Bartow, Fla. standout defensive end Alex Boston finished the season with 62 tackles and 12 quarterback sacks.

A full academic qualifier, Boston is now playing soccer as he prepares for his senior year in baseball.

"I'm doing soccer because I like it and it's helping with my footwork and quickness," he said. "And I'm just getting ready for my baseball season."

Boston said he continues to get recruited for baseball.

"I got hand written letters from both Florida State and Miami over Thanksgiving," he said. "I also went out to Arizona for a tournament and had some coaches talking to me."

Boston said despite getting attention from pro teams, he's definitely going to play college football instead.

"My mama doesn't care about the pros right now," he said. "She couldn't care less. She wants me to get an education first."

Boston is getting ready to take his first official visit this Friday.

"I'm going to UConn," he said. "They came by here tonight and I'm going up there for my visit. I'm also looking at the three Florida schools, Ohio State, Iowa, Notre Dame, Boston College, Georgia, and Alabama."

Boston talked more about the Hurricanes.

"I like Miami a lot," he said. "I like the tradition and the success they're having. I haven't decided whether I'm going to take a visit there or not."

There's only one potential problem with taking a visit to UM at this point.

"I haven't heard from the Miami coaches in awhile," he said. "They haven't called since near the end of my season (almost 4 weeks)."
