Arizona will host a junior college defensive back this weekend. Read on to see who it is and much…
Boyd Sees Interest Grow
Only one of those schools have actually offered Boyd at this point, as Utah was the first school to extend an offer to the physical defensive back. "I am very interested in Utah. I think it's a great school, and since they were my first offer, I'm most likely going to take a visit there, no matter what schools offer me." Cornerbacks coach Sharieff Shah is Boyd's main recruiter for Utah, and he's grown a very close relationship with him so far. "Aww man, I love Coach Shah. He's a really nice guy and he always tells me the truth. I also like the fact that he is young and played (cornerback), so I know I'll be getting trained to be a great defensive back." Boyd currently plays corner for his team, but Utah may have him play multiple positions. "Coach Shah actually thinks I can be nickel back, so I'm guessing they just want to try me out at numerous spots." Having a defensive back that can line up in both the slot and outside can be a huge asset to a defense, and it looks like that is exactly what Boyd would provide. Utah would also be a good fit for Boyd, as one of the main qualities he's looking for in a school is the shot to play in the NFL. "I'm looking for good coaching efforts at my position, how I will fit in the program & national exposure. I want to be noticed and have a shot at the league."
Boyd states that he does currently have a leader among the schools that are recruiting him, but that leader isn't necessarily his favorite school. "My favorite school is not recruiting me as of right now, which is Alabama. I'm from Birmingham, Alabama so I would love to play in the SEC, but Utah is definitely my leader right now. I really like the staff." With the spring evaluation period still in full swing, Boyd doesn't have any plans to make a decision soon, but would still like to make that decision around the start of the season. "I'd like to make my decision before the season or during the first couple of weeks."
