Weddington QB Anthony Boone had a fine performance at Sunday's Scout.com combine at West Charlotte High, probably playing well enough that recruiters began digging through their contacts for his phone number when they heard the news.
Boone, though, is off the market, happy with his commitment to Duke. The Blue Devils were mentioned by a number of players Sunday, and behind coach David Cutcliffe, seem to be generating more interest among the better Carolinas prospects than in the past.
Scout.com recruiting expert Chad Simmons watched Boone throw and came away impressed.
"I thought Boone looked good," he said. "A little undersized, but a live arm, great release. For him, at 6-foot-1, he’s got to release the ball high, and he does. I think he did really well."
At the combine, Boone also weighed in at a solid 225.8 pounds. And he may not be through growing.
It appears the Blue Devils made a nice catch.--Stan Olson
