A week ago, Boynton Beach (FL) 2017 cornerback Endrickson Boucher was committed to Florida Atlantic University. But his commitment to the Owls rapidly changed when head football coach Charlie Partridge was fired. Pitt, in need of quality cornerbacks, seized the opportunity and met with the physical corner on Wednesday.
“I met with Coach (Tim) Salem and head coach (Pat) Narduzzi today,” said Boucher. They walked up right outside my classroom. They called me out of class and we had a great conversation. They actually had me hit some push-ups in the hallway! Vanderbilt came to see me today as well.”
“Coach Narduzzi saw my film and really liked it. Before he left today, he told me I remind them of one of their corners due my physical play. He offered me a scholarship before he left today.”
Boucher has received scholarship offers from Pitt, Arkansas, Temple, Florida Atlantic, Western Kentucky and Middle Tennessee State.
“Coach Salem and Narduzzi told me they were looking for some secondary players. They were short on secondary players and I fit what they are looking for.”
When asked about his strengths, Boucher quickly stated, “I’m very physical, I have good feet and I’m very fast. I run a 4.4 flat forty-yard dash that’s been laser-timed. I bring a lot of hype to the secondary and I love to compete.”
“I’m very interested in the Panthers program. Pitt had a great season going 8-4 but I know they could use help in the secondary. I think their defensive scheme fits me well.”
Boucher currently has a January 20th official visit scheduled with Western Kentucky. He believes he will have a January official visit scheduled with Pitt within the week. Arkansas, Vanderbilt and Temple continue to pursue his services.
