Boone chose Maryland over North Carolina, Kentucky, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech among other schools.
“[Maryland is] home, Boone told The Left Bench in April at the Nike Football Opening Camp. “Me and my family always talked about going to Maryland to stay home so everybody can watch me.”
Boone will now be the tenth commit in Maryland’s 2018 class and the eighth commit in the DMV area.
“It’s big, we have all played together,” Boone said, “and it would be great if we all got a national championship on the highest level.”
Boone is the first Class of 2018 commitment in the secondary for the Terps. Now, the 5-foot-11 safety can now focus on his senior season.
Boone is coming off of a good junior season. According to maxpreps.com he played both defense and offense and recorded 38 catches for 699 yards and six touchdowns. On the defensive side, he recorded 28 tackles with five interceptions.
With this commitment, Maryland now moves up two slots from 27th to 25th in the nation for football recruiting, according to 247sports.com.
