“It was awesome,” Boley said of the visit. “I got to spend the whole day with Coach Halzle. The only time I didn’t was when we were taking photos. He sat with me the whole basketball game, and that was really fun. It was an awesome day. We got to talk ball toward the end for a long time. Every time I have been down here, it has been really fun. Just getting to talk ball with them more and more each time and seeing new things is fun. It was a really good day.”
“A lot of stuff about the offense,” Boley said of what he learned during the trip. “We dove really deep into the offense today, which is something I really liked. Being able to dive deeper into the offense and see what it is all about. Some people from the outside call it backyard football, but it is really not. It is a lot more in-depth than people think. I really liked sitting down and talking with Coach Halzle.”
As he continues to return to Knoxville, the culture Josh Heupel and the Tennessee staff have built in their two years on Rocky Top continues to stand out to the elite signal-caller.
“The culture they have built with this new coaching staff taking over,” Boley said on this. “The fanbase was down a little bit before he came in, but everyone is thriving now. Being able to get back to the old Tennesse, they are one of the top teams in the nation, and they are playing really good football. I like the direction Coach Heupel has them headed in.”
“That was the first thing I did when I got in there,” Boley said of spending time with Heupel. “It was a really good conversation. He talked a lot about how I am just high on their board and also just sitting in there and getting to know Coach Heupel and what they are all about was really fun.”
Boley, who is viewed as an elite quarterback by teams across the country, says Tennessee has been clear about what they like about his game.
“Being able to fit the process, my movements, and play outside of the pocket,” Boley said on this. “Every time I sit down with Coach Halzle, I think he likes my thought process and what I am going through. I think they like me all around, and I will definitely be back here in the Spring and then in the summer for a camp.”
