There are no WORLD RECORDS for windy performances. Not even in High School. And at 4+ it’s just data.

That said, the kid is the goods and a great POTENTIAL Olympic prospect. Saying it’s stating the obvious that he’ll be an Olympian one day is to not know what it takes to be an Olympian.

Georgia’s a good program...but the choice…makes me think they’ll turn him into a decathlete - which in my opinion would be a waste.
If he runs this time next year, I see him going Pro especially with the Olympics being next year.

Every sport is in the sec’s crosshairs.
Women’s softball. Bama getting girls as far as Northern California to play for them.
To be fair.... CA is the best state for softball so it is the "South FL" of football.

I mean, you can convert the time based on the wind.

It would be a 10.07 with a legal tailwind, 10.15 with zero wind (which would tie the 2nd fastest HS 100m ever ran).
I realize the conversion aspect, I’m just saying it’s NOT a WR … Kiryu Yoshihide JPN ran 10.01 (0.9) when he was 17 and still in high school.

If he runs this time next year, I see him going Pro especially with the Olympics being next year.
Sadly, his choice of school makes me doubt he’ll stay with the 100m. I hope he does. In my opinion he has the ability to be a top American sprinter but Europeans (his coach is Greek) tend to turn good sprinters with less melanin into decathletes/heptathletes. Dafne Schippers was a rarity.

Does he compete in other events? And with his stride, I would love to see him in the long sprints like the 2 and 4.

You do know he’s one of the fastest in the nation in the 200m and 400m? It wouldn’t bother me one bit if you never ran the deuce or the quarter. The kid is fast and needs to sprint exclusively.

He's also the best HS long jumper in the country, so he might end up focusing on that

Again, windy times, and times without wind indicators, are considered invalid; they don’t count (International track pays no attention to NWI or windy times). However, for purely statistical purposes, here’s where he stands in World U-20 … (also, Boling is 3 months older than Anthony Schwartz)

9.97 - 100m 1st in the world (“legal” he’s 5th in the world)

20.55 - 200m 2nd in the world

46.51 - 400m 13th in the world

He's fast and talented, that's for sure. Kid is going to make a lot of money in T&F.

the 2nd place kid is a beast. Big time safety (210, iirc) who is a UT commit.

Thanks for the tip off. At 210, and he looks close to that, he is flying.
