Recruiting: 2014 Dwyer S Shawn Boone ready to announce college decision 

By Anthony Chiang

The highest ranked non-committed prospect remaining on the PBGametime Class of 2014 Big Board is ready to make his college decision.

Dwyer safety Shawn Boone used Facebook and Twitter to announce that he will make his college decision public on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Palm Beach Ale House (2161 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., West Palm Beach). Boone will pick between NC State, Penn State and Arkansas.

Coaches from NC State visited the 5-foot-10, 185-pound recruit’s home Thursday night and Boone came away impressed. The Wolfpack are seen as the favorite to land the Dwyer product.

“In Home Visit was great! #PACK14 #WOLFPACKNATION,” Boone tweeted.

According to 24-7 Sports, Boone committed to the Wolfpack after the visit. But Boone told the Palm Beach Post on Friday morning that he is not ready to announce his decision until Thursday.

On Friday, Boone is expected to welcome Maryland coaches into his home. But the Terrapins are not expected to be serious contenders to land the three-star safety.

Boone has already taken official visits to Penn State, NC State, Maryland and Arkansas.
