"The reason that I chose Western Kentucky is because when I went down to the university I was basically looking for a place that had a good atmosphere, a good campus life and a university that had goods sports, and I felt that," Boyd said.
"I felt like Western Kentucky was the perfect fit," he continued. "I know the coaches very especially their assistant Ray Harper. I go tot know coach McDonald also. They are just good people off the court and we just jelled."
Boyd said the Hilltoppers began pursuing him due to a relationship between Ray Harper, an assistant at WKU, and his AAU coach.
"My AAU coach and Ray Harper, an assistant coach at Western Kentucky, go way back," Boyd said. My AAU coach mentioned my name to coach to coach Harper my junior year and the next week I saw Western Kentucky in the gym."
Boyd, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound wing, took a visit to Bowling Green (Ky.) this past weekend. He's currently rated as a four-star prospect and is ranked No. 18 at the small forward position.
Boyd, who hasn't played the past two seasons due to eligibility issues, said he should be good to go academically.
