Palm Beach Gardens (FL) Dwyer standout Shawn Boone has taken four of his five allowed official visits and he plans to take one more.
Ole Miss is the school Boone will trek to sometime in January and
the Rebels will have to impress him because the other schools he has
visited have set the bar high.
Back in September Boone took official visits to NC State, Arkansas
and Ohio State and each of those schools still has a shot.
His most recent official was to Penn State on November 23rd and the
Nittany Lions helped their cause as well.
"Amazing. There were a lot of fans. It was cold but I got used to it
after a while," he said.
The cold isn't going to cause Boone to mark the PSU trip down too
much. He said 'no place is warm' (presumably with late fall and
winter in mind) and won't consider that in making his decision.
Boone was there at Beaver Stadium for Penn State's 23-20 loss to
Nebraska and while the outcome wasn't ideal he said the environment
in the stadium was electric and appealing.
NC State struggled on the field this year and won't be playing in
the post season for different reasons than Penn State but Boone says
he could still see himself in red and white.
"I was there two or three months ago and it was a good trip. I know
the coaches very well. All of them. Richard McNutt and Coach
(Doeren). I think they're going to take the program far. I thought
the school and everything about it was great."
So Ole Miss gets the last shot to make their case though Boone will
have in-home visits with coaches from the other schools.
"I'm gonna let the school (he chooses) know in January but I'm not
going to announce until national signing day."
Boone is rated a three star prospect and the No. 122 safety in the
nation by Scout.com.
