ABOUT THE PLAYER: Boone is a legit #1 type target at the next level. He suffered a knee injury as a sophomore and came back strong as a junior leading his team to the state title game before losing to Pahokee. He was magnificent in that game and with another year removed from that injury, he is poised for a huge senior season. Boone has plus size, soft hands, and elite ball skills. He has plenty of speed to get down the field and should be even faster this year. He may be the most complete WR in the state this year and will come in ready to contribute early. He should be an outstanding fit for Texas Tech's spread offense.
FOR TEXAS TECH: Terrific job in Florida landing two of the top WR's in the state in Kadron Boone and Shawn Corker. These two are both high character kids with strong work ethics in the classroom and on the field. After putting up monster passing numbers for years, one can't discount the factor that Michael Crabtree was to this program. It is clear that top WR's want to be a part of this offense. Expect the Red Raiders to see an uptick in recruiting over the next several years.
Texas Tech did land four WR's in the 2009 class, with three from the Lonestar state (Derrick Mays, Eric Ward, Aaron Fisher) and one from Louisiana (Ernest Celestine). With all the multiple WR sets that they run, this is a good situation for Boone (and Corker).
