Boyd Raves About Razorbacks

Arkansas is firmly entrenched in the battle for Lee's Summit (MO) West defensive end Jamone Boyd (6-4, 250), who recently visited the campus for a second time, is headed back for the Elite camp on July 21 and is coached by a former Razorback.

Arkansas will get yet another chance to impress Lee's Summit (MO) West defensive end Jamone Boyd (6-4, 250) next month.

Boyd, who has been to Arkansas for a Junior Day and another recent unofficial visit this year, will be back for the Razorbacks' Elite Camp on July 21.

"I love it down there and can't wait to get back," Boyd said. "It's a great campus with great facilities and I love being around my position coach and I'm looking forward to working with him in camp."

That would be Arkansas assistant Steve Caldwell, who no doubt can't wait to work with Boyd as well.

"I think that most people talk about how they love how aggressive I am with my pass rush and how strong I am, but I want to keep working on my technique and get better with my feet," Boyd said. "I know he can help me out with that and make me a better player going into this season."

One of Boyd's assistant coaches is former Razorback football player Limbo Parks, who continues to work Arkansas football camps in the summer.

"Coach Parks is obviously a big Razorback fan and he still loves them and talks about them all the time," Boyd said. "But he doesn't say ‘you definitely need to go to Arkansas or be a Razorback.' What he does is just answers any questions about them I might have. And I know that is where he would love for me to end up."

Boyd has visited Arkansas both times with good friend and Kansas City (MO) Rockhurst offensive lineman Zach Hannon (6-5. 300).

"Yes, we are good friends and it would be great for us to both play at the same place," Boyd said. "We both love Arkansas, but we have to make the best choice for each of us."

In addition to his Arkansas offer, Boyd also has ones from Missouri, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Kansas State, Illinois and Purdue.

"I'm thinking that I will make my decision either before my high school season starts or maybe after the first game," Boyd said. "Then I can just concentrate on the season."
