WR Kadron Boone (6-1 190) of Ocala, FL has offers from Clemson and USC. He also has offers from Florida, South Florida, Central Florida, Miami, Notre Dame, Cincinnati, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Purdue, Rutgers, Mississippi State, and Duke.
Boone was only able to make Florida for junior day. "They surprised me a little," he said. "They only talked about football for a couple of minutes and really focused on academics. They talked about how important it is to get a good education and they want to graduate everyone. That impressed me."
Boone said he also wanted to go to USC and LSU but money is tight right now. "The way the economy is, Florida was the only place that I could visit," said Boone.
He is friends with Dion Lecorn and Antonio Allen and says they are the ones to convince him to visit USC. "I talk to Dion more because he's a wide receiver," he said. "He told me it's hard to put in words and I should just visit. He loves the coaches and says Columbia is a great place to be. He says I just need o visit and I'll understand how great it is."

As a junior, Boone had 57 receptions for over 1280 yards and 16 total touchdowns, including kick off and punt returns. He says he wants to research the schools he has offers from before narrowing his list. "I'm looking for schools that graduate their players. Academics are important to me," said Boone. He has no favorites.
