Following Lee's Summit West's 70-76 4OT loss to Staley in the Missouri Class 5A state semi-final on Friday night, 2012 G/C prospect Evan Boehm has turned his attention toward his recruitment. He has informed ShowMeMizzou.com that he has decommitted from Missouri.
"But Missouri is still in my top four," said Boehm, who cited confusion about the situation as his reason for decommitting.
I asked Boehm what it was that had prompted him to decommit?
"Just everything that's happened in the past month at the University of Missouri, like going to the SEC," explained Boehm. "That weighs on me. Also, all of the kids who are leaving from Texas. And, there's a couple of kids from around here who are thinking about leaving.
That's a huge weight on a kid, especially when you're going to play football with the people for the next four or five years. I'm just really confused right now, and I'm just in the middle of my thought process."
"I'm going to sit back," continued Boehm. "And, I'm going to take five official visits. I'm still going to be at Mizzou on December 9-10, for my official visit. I'm just going to relax, and see what happens, and see where God takes me."
Boehm referred to Simon Goines. He said that Goines is still committed to Missouri, but that he's looking around. Boehm said that he's been talking to other recruits.
"I know that everybody at the University of Missouri is upset with me right now," said Boehm. "Honestly, when it comes down to it, I have to do what's best for me and my family. I know that Missouri's close and everything………………………………… I'm just really not sure what I want to do right now."
Boehm is planning to visit Auburn this weekend. Then, he'll visit Missouri the weekend of December 9th. He named Iowa and Oklahoma as other schools he may be considering. He emphasized his confused state.
"I'm confused about what I want to do," said Boehm. "I just want to follow my gut, and right now, my gut's telling me to open back up, and take the visits that I need to take."
