Boggs' physical nature was evident in high school, when he was a football/baseball star. He committed to play baseball only at Georgia, then had regrets and transferred to Chattanooga (which doesn't have a baseball team) to play football in the fall of his sophomore year. After playing in three games as a quarterback (he rushed three times for nine yards), he returned to Georgia as a sophomore to focus again on baseball. Boggs hasn't been consistent as a baseball player, struggling to throw consistent strikes, but took off as a closer late in 2005 for the Bulldogs. Boggs has topped out at 94 mph and sits in the 90-93 range. He's still raw due to his inexperience in baseball, leaving his secondary stuff short, and he is still learning how to compete. His stuff and size, though, should make him the first player drafted off a disappointing Georgia team.
