Boston adds to flurry of UNC commits

Tre Boston, a former Cincinnati commitment from North Fort Myers (Fla.) High, added to North Carolina’s flurry of recruiting commitments from Florida on Friday.

Boston, who’s 6-foot-1 and 175 pounds, was the Class 3A player of the year in Florida and could play wide receiver or defensive back.

“He’s got incredible ball skills,” said North Fort Myers coach Barry Goettemiller, “and everybody that’s recruited him has recognized that he could play on either side of the football.”

Boston re-evaluated his commitment to Cincinnati after coach Brian Kelly left the Bearcats to coach Notre Dame.

“He wouldn’t even have considered North Carolina if there hadn’t been a coaching change,” Goettemiller said, “but that’s all part of the game in college football. He’s very happy, and I’m happy for him."

Boston joined running back Gio Bernard of Fort Lauderdale and defensive end Tim Jackson of St. Petersburg as late-week commitments from Florida for North Carolina with signing day approaching Wednesday.

State fans have talked a lot of smack about recruiting, and now their class is "second best" to their rival's.

So be warned, there'll be plenty more corny "Tire Bowl" jokes where that came from.

Maybe someday they'll have a winning season and we will be able to make fun of their bowl games.

What bowl did you rednecks lose this year? What about last year?





Oh, ok.

State fans crack me up! If you actually won anything, then you could talk smack when you beat the Heels. But you have won nothing and continue to be at the bottom half of the league. Beating the Heels and yet sucking ass the rest of the season is like losing in the first round of the NIT even though you beat the eventual National Champs. Now you can see how stupid you look.

F*&K nc state. Everyone knows you learn how to garden at state, and you learn how to make money at the real University of North Carolina....@ Chapel Hill!

As a UNC grad, (class of 85), I feel sorry for these UNC recruits. I can't imagine how sad it must be to practice hard all week then watch the stadium empty early in the 3rd quarter because a basketball player is walking somewhere nearby. I also hope they are not victims of Butch's waiver wire. Like many other Chapel Hill grads, I am embarrassed by the thuggery Davis has introduced to the program. I thought I was watching a bunch of children during the idiocy at the end of the State game. A great university, and both schools are great universities, deserves to have its athletic programs (I'm also talking to you Roy) reflect the character of the school.

I was at every UNC game this year and other than our second Division II school game, the stadium was full the entire game. I can't comment on State because they were never on.

Man Tar Hole fans sure are testy when it comes to football! Is it because you haven't beaten your rival in 3 years?! The comment above about making money...haha get a grip. Of course if it wasn't for those gardeners you wouldn't have a darn thing to eat. But I guess that is a less honorable job than being a fratastic businessman or a tree hugging, Obama loving granola!



Oh yeah, I know wayyyyy more redneck trailer trash white people that pull for UNC than any other team...

Congrats on a winning record against a team that didn't offer scholarships until the 1950's!!! Wow you guys sure are proud of throwing out numbers!

Here's some for you:

41-10
28-27
Butch is sooooooo great!

And when exactly has UNC won anything?? It sounds to me like two middle of the road programs that get to hang their hats on beating the other...since it is a rivalry game after all!

Having a highly ranked recruiting class means more in basketball than it does in football. I think it's funny that Butch is doing the same thing to UNC that he did at Miami...bringing in the thugs. FOr such a PRESTIGIOUS university, don't you want better?

Chris
You are wrong in your statements and apparently have not been to a football game. Graduation rates and classroom performance are some of the best in the nation. State fans are the worst in the world and you should address that before you criticize the Tar Heels.
Calling our athletes "Thugs" is a no class act and Butch Davis has done nothing but enhance our athletic standing. You are not a Tarheel but sound more like a Dukie.

kickazzz2000 said...

The ignorance is astounding. Some people will believe anything if they want it to be true.

Show me EVIDENCE that Butch brought thugs to UM? What sort of condition was UM in when Butch was hired, and when he left? Dude cleaned that cesspool up. Miami was considering DROPPING football in the mid 90's due to all the problems they had and the NCAA sanctions.

Think before you type.


And Chris...nice try wuffie.

AHHHHHHH Soaking up all the hate. Lets me know they are worried.......

It's not how you start but how you finish! HOW BOUT DEM HEELS?!?!?!?!?!?

Chris said...

The things I wrote were in regard to having athletics at UNC reflect the character of UNC as an institution. Anyone who thinks UNC's players did not act like thugs is in denial. I gave very specific details as to what I went. As for Anonymous and Paul, unless you are in your 50s, I have been to a lot more UNC games than you have. Come back when you grow up.
