Arkansas Weicomes In Texas Prep CB Kobe Boyce

Arkansas will get an visit on Tuesday from Lake Dallas cornerback Kobe Boyce (6-1, 175), who is getting recruited by both the former and current Arkansas coaches.

Lake Dallas, Texas, cornerback Kobe Boyce feels very fortunate to have the opportunities he has in terms of playing college football.

Boyce (6-1, 175) is doing his best to see each college and will take a visit Tuesday to Arkansas,  one of three visits he is taking this week alone.

“I have always liked Arkansas and have followed their games while I was growing up,” Boyce said. “I am excited about visiting Fayetteville and seeing what all they have to offer.”

Boyce has already visited Texas and SMU, is slated to be at Arkansas Tuesday, TCU on Wednesday and Baylor for its Friday Night Lights at the end of the week.

He has offers from Arkansas, Duke, Iowa State, New Mexico, Colorado State and Texas-San Antonio while getting interest from Baylor, Oklahoma, SMU, Texas, Texas Tech and Arizona. 

“I am very honored and blessed to have a lot of options and I am just doing my best to check everybody out and see what might be the best fit for me,” Boyce said. “I will probably start narrowing down my list this summer and maybe even make a decision this summer.

“But it might also go into my senior season. I’ll have a better idea after I make the visits.”

Both the Razorbacks former and current secondary coaches are recruiting Boyce with Clay Jennings now at Texas and former Iowa State head coach Paul Rhodes now at Arkansas.

“Coach Jennings wasn’t recruiting me at Arkansas, but is now that he is at Texas,” Boyce said. “He is a good guy and a good coach.

“I have visited with Coach Rhodes a couple of times and he is really knowledgeable about the game having been a head coach and all that."

Boyce had 40 tackles, eight pass break ups and two interceptions this past season as Lake Dallas went 12-2.

“I think I have good hips and speed and play the ball really well,” Boyce said. “But I know that I can get better in every facet of my game so I am putting in the work each day.”
