WR Jheranie Boyd Profile
A busy day at the state finals track meet kept four-star wide receiver Jheranie Boyd from attending the Scout.com/Under-Armour combine on Saturday.
"I had seven events," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I was tired. I did good in the preliminaries, but when I got to the finals I was worn out."
Clemson fans will be interested to know the Tigers' latest verbal commitment, five-star safety Devonote Holloman, gave Boyd a call the day after making his big decision.
"Yeah I talked to Devonte today. He told me why he chose Clemson. He talked to me about why he made his decision early," said Boyd. "It was good."
When asked about his current favorites, Boyd responded, "I have a top 10. I don't want to say who they are right now though."
The Clemson coaching staff will get to see the All American in person this summer.
"I am going to a one day camp at Clemson. Devonte and Larry Raper are going to go down for the one day on the same day. I am probably going to South Carolina, North Carolina and the Florida State showcase as well," said Boyd.
The halls of Ashbrook High (N.C.) have been filled with coaches from some of the nation's top programs the past few weeks.
"Ohio State, Michigan, Clemson, N.C. State, South Carolina and Southern California have come by the school. Oregon is coming by tomorrow. Alabama, Auburn, Wake Forest, Tennessee, Florida, Florida State and some other have visited," said Boyd.
When does the elite receiver plan to make his commitment?
"I am going to talk to my counselor about graduating early. I talked with Devonte about that today. If I graduate early I will probably make it before the season. If I don't I will probably wait until signing day. I should be able to enroll early because I am taking my last three core classes first semester," replied Boyd.
"I want to get familiar with the offense. I know if I waited until after my senior year it would take me longer to start because I would have to learn the system," said Boyd.
What will be the most important factors when Boyd decides on his college destination?
"I will look at the relationship with the coaches. I want a coach that fits my personality. I will look at what type of Communications program they have as I would like to major in Communications. I will look at the atmosphere they have on game day," 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 as a junior at Ashbrook High School in Gastonia, N.C.
