The impressive offer list grows for 6-3, 185 pound speedster Jheranie Boyd (Gastonia, N.C.).

"My most recent offer is from Florida," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "Oregon said they will offer soon. I think Miami will as well. I have about 11 offers now."

When asked if he has any current favorites, Boyd responded, "No, I am still taking unofficial visits. I haven't narrowed it down and more offers are coming."

While Jheranie still hasn't narrowed his choices down yet, one of his family members already has a clear favorite.

"My mom really likes Clemson," he said. "She knows I am going to look at other schools. She went on a trip to Clemson with me and she really likes everything down there."

Several visits will occur over the next few months.

"I am going to Alabama in a couple of weeks. I know I am going to camp at Miami this summer. I am also planning a trip to South Carolina and some others," said Boyd.

The prize recruit has already visited Clemson numerous times.

"I have been to Clemson about five times already. I went to a game last year. I went to Junior Day and three or four other times," said Boyd.

With offers continuing to come in the Ashbrook standout doesn't plan to narrow things down until next fall.

"I don't know when I will narrow things down. I will take some official visits," he said. I know Oregon will probably get one of the official visits. Pete Carroll called a week ago. If they offer they would get another official visit."

What will be most important to Boyd when he selects his college destination?

"I will look at the education first. I will see how the business programs are. I want to get my degree in three years," replied Boyd.

The 6-foot-3, 180-pounder totaled 47 receptions for 1,151 yards (24.5 YPC) and 11 touchdowns while earning first-team all-conference and all-area honors last season.
