Boston, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound cornerback from North Fort Myers (Fla.), verbally committed to Cincinnati in early July. However, when head coach Brian Kelly left for Notre Dame, Boston began looking into other schools.
UNC began recruiting Boston during the spring, but ceased its efforts when he made a verbal commitment to Cincinnati.
"When I reopened my recruitment, [UNC] was the first school to call me and tell me they still wanted me," Boston said. "And then I kind of stuck with them, because they've been there since the beginning with Cincinnati.
"[UNC] told me they wanted me, definitely… They definitely wanted me to come visit this time, because I didn't visit the first part of my recruiting process and I promised I would go."
Heading into this past weekend, Boston says he was basically only considering Cincinnati and UNC. However, he says Michigan had begun to show interest.
Before ending his Cincinnati official visit, Boston re-committed to the Bearcats.
"Pretty much, I wanted to make sure the coaching staff was still good people and still felt that they wanted me there," Boston said. "The trip, it made me think that I was well wanted in Cincinnati and that just reaffirmed everything."
Since the Cincinnati visit, Boston has spoken to Everett Withers, UNC's defensive coordinator.
"He still wants me to go up there, get a chance to look at their campus, and see what they have to offer me," Boston said. "He wants me to at least have the option to compare something to Cincinnati."
Boston says Withers told him UNC is looking to sign two cornerbacks with this class.
