Kobe Boyce Enjoyed his Visit to Arkansas

Corinth (Texas) Lake Dallas three-star cornerback Kobe Boyce visited Arkansas on Tuesday.

While many high school kids are enjoying spring break by relaxing on a beach or chilling at home, Kobe Boyce is using the week to help him with his future.

The Corinth (Texas) Lake Dallas three-star cornerback visited TCU on Monday, will visit Baylor on Friday and could also visit SMU at some point. On Tuesday, though, Boyce was in Fayetteville to check out Arkansas.

"The visit was great," Boyce said. "It was nothing like I expected. I had a great time. I got to see mostly everything they have to offer and I enjoyed it and loved it."

It went so well that Boyce - who had 40 tackles, eight pass breakup and two interceptions during Lake Dallas' 12-2 season in 2015 - said he hopes to make it back to Arkansas for the Razorbacks' spring game on April 23.

Tuesday's visit allowed Boyce (6-1, 175) to meet Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema. He actually spoke to him twice: when he first got to Fayetteville and right as he was leaving.

"It was good talking to him," Boyce said. "I got to know him better because I've never really talked to him."

Boyce also talked to defensive coordinator Robb Smith and spend some one-on-one time with defensive backs coach Paul Rhoads.

The time with Rhoads - who was the head coach at Iowa State before joining the Razorbacks' staff - left Boyce really impressed.

"It would be great (to play for Rhoads)," Boyce said. "He has that fire in him and he's a really good guy. It looks like he loves what he does and he does it with a passion. I like what he's doing."

Before his TCU visit, Boyce attended Nike's The Opening Regional in Dallas and ran the 40-yard dash in a laser-timed 4.49 second. He also had a 37.5-inch vertical.

Arkansas is one of several schools vying for Boyce's services. He also has offers from Colorado State, Duke, Houston, Iowa State, Middle Tennessee State, New Mexico and Texas-San Antonio, while Arizona, Baylor, Oklahoma, SMU, Texas and Texas Tech are expressing interest.

Nothing is set in stone, but Boyce said he hopes to make his college decision during the summer, before his senior season. If he doesn't, it will probably wait until after the season.
