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.
