Prospects continue to emerge for the class of 2014. One such prospect that may garner BCS-level consideration is Woodbridge (Va.) Woodbridge athlete Marcus Boone.
Athlete Marcus Boone camped at Virginia Tech recently and is high on the Hokies early. He is a Class of 2014 prospect from Woodbridge (Va.)
Recently, Boone visited both UVA and Virginia Tech for the first time. On Sunday he participated in the Virginia Tech prospect camp.
How did he enjoy his time in Blacksburg?
“This was my first visit to Virginia Tech and honestly it blew me away,” he said. “I didn’t know it was that beautiful up there. I had fun at the camp.”
While it is still very early in the process and he did not receive an offer,
Boone did get to talk with the Hokies coaches following his performance.
“I got to speak with Coach Bud Foster (recruits Wood after the camp. He was very straight forward and seemed like a father figure. I also spoke to Coach Frank Beamer. Growing up, Virginia Tech was one of my top schools along with Ohio State and Florida. It was an honor meeting both of those guys.”
The versatile prospect played running back and linebacker for his team this past season, but mentioned he can also play safety and some slot wide receiver.
With almost two full years before he must decide where he wants to go to school, there is plenty of time left in the recruiting process. With that said, does Boone have any more visits planned in the upcoming months?
“Right now I’m waiting to hear from some schools. If my cousin Da’Shawn Hand comes back to the next camp in July, I’d love to come as well. I really want to get back to some Virginia Tech games this fall.
“As far as other camps go, we are going to a 7-on-7 at Maryland and then I just plan on working to get ready for the season the rest of the summer.”
Boone could project at a number of positions in the Hokies’ defensive scheme.
