Virginia Player Has One More Visit

A Virginia dual threat visited West Virginia over the weekend, and found "a different atmosphere" than he did at the other schools he has visited so far. Will it be enough to sway him toward the Mountaineers?

Greg Boone, a standout two-way prospect from Oscar F. Smith High School in Chesapeake, Va., had a good visit to WVU.

"The facilities were excellent," said Boone, who was making his first trip to the West Virginia campus. "I like it because it's the main focus in the state - it's just a different atmosphere."

Boone also relates well with his recruiting coach, Bill Stewart, who pursuaded the big star to come to WVU for a look after an inhome visit earlier this month.

"Coach Stewart is always similing, and always positive," Boone said. "I like that - it fits well with me."

Boone has now completed three of his four planned official visits, and will cap them off with a trip to North Carolina next Friday. He plans to finish that visit before making his college choice.

"I'll talk with my family and my coaches and try to figure out what's best for me," Boone said. I want to go somethere that I fit in well and get along with the coaches, and where the offensive system fits me, and where I can get the major I'm looking for.

Boone plans to go into the coaching field, so a physical education or athletic coaching major, both of which are offered by West Virginia, would fit those plans. He indicated that he wants to make his decision before signing day. He has not yet ranked his final four schools, which include Maryland and Virginia Tech along with the Mountaineers and Tar Heels.
