The wait is finally over.
Mizzou just did something indeed.
CJ Boone, the 6’3” 180-pound wide receiver, who had offers from Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, and Minnesota chose Mizzou Saturday.
Boone gave his verbal commitment on Instagram and Twitter today in the form of a video.
In an interview, Boone explained why he chose Mizzou and his hopes for the future.
“Because it’s close to home and my family will get to watch me play. My decision from the jump was going to be PAC-12 or SEC,” Boone said.
According to 247sports.com Boone has a grade of .871 which is good enough for the 12th best in Missouri.
In regards to the recruiting from Missouri Boone was impressed.
“Their recruiting stood out to me mostly because of Coach [Derek] Dooley and coach AJ, because I felt really at home with all of them there”, Boone said.
Boone is in his senior year at Parkway North High School where he is the team’s No. 1- option at receiver and is a mismatch for most defensive coordinators.
Boone is a team player and ready to help out in any capacity.
“My hopes for freshman year are to obviously play and try to make an impact on the team, but I don’t mind having to redshirt and taking a year to absorb everything that is needed, if I have too,” Boone said.
Boone has talked about himself running a 40-yard dash in the 4.3 and 4.4-range. He says he’s been clocked multiple times at 4.3.
While being recruited Boone also attended an Under Armour All America Camp in Chicago.
He had quite the showcase against some of the country’s top talent.
Boone will be a great addition alongside incoming quarterback Connor Bazelak.
“I’m honestly ready to start clicking with Connor B (the QB that’s committed in the 2019 class) from Dayton, that’s my boy,” Boone said.
