Boobas received an offer from Army on May 19, making the academy school his first offer. After that, the 2017 recruit decide to head up to West Point on July 22nd to tour the campus and get to know the coaching staff.
Boobas was floored after meeting head coach Jeff Monken and his recruiting coach Brent Davis in person on his summer visit. The Army coaching staff’s persistence and commitment obviously made a major impact on Boobas, and with the state playoff looming, and a strong senior class hungry for a state title, the time to commit was right.
So what is Army getting in Boobas’ commitment? Watch him on film and it seems like he is all over the field. One moment he is making a play at the line of scrimmage, the next he is flipping a receiver over his head. He is a fundamental tackler, capable of knocking the tar out of a ball carrier. Above all else, he sees the field very well, which allows him to make outstanding breaks on the ball.
The Jefferson junior has college football in his blood. His dad was a two sport Letterman at Clemson in Football and Track & Field. Like his father, Boobas is a multi-sport athlete as well, lettering in wrestling, baseball, and of course football. The senior is also an excellent student holding a 3.75 GPA.
With his commitment, Boobas is the 26th commitment for Army and the 3rd player from the state of Georgia.
