WR Jheranie Boyd Profile

Over the past week Gastonia Ashbrook standout Jheranie Boyd narrowed his list down to five schools, including Clemson, Florida, Auburn, North Carolina and N.C. State.

What does he like about each one?

Clemson: "I like coach Swinney and coach Napier. They seem like laid back coaches. They seem like players coaches. I really like the campus at Clemson. The players are down to earth. I would get a good education at Clemson. They run the pro style offense and I want to play in the pro style offense."

Florida: "I like the campus a lot. I like coach Meyer a lot. He was the first coach to come down and meet me on a visit. Most of the coaches I go to meet them in the office. I like their receivers coach. I won't have to worry about the academics at Florida either."

Auburn: "They run the exact same offense as us. They run the spread. They have a good QB. I know they will have someone that can get me the ball. I also like coach Franklin."

North Carolina: "I like Butch Davis. I know he is one of the best college coaches. He sent a lot of guys to the pros. They also run a pro style as well. They had two good recruiting classes in 2007 and 2008. They will be ready to compete for the ACC in the next couple of years."

North Carolina State: "They have Mike Glennon now at quarterback. He is a pocket passer with a good arm. I got to see him at practice. He gives the receivers a good chance to go out and get the ball. I like to go get long passes. They also run the pro style offense."

When asked if there are any teams in front at this point, Boyd responded, "I still like Clemson and Florida."

Expect to see the top receiver in Death Valley and around the ACC and SEC this fall.

"I need to look at the schedules to make some plans," he said. "I would like to go see State play at Clemson. I would like to go to the LSU game against Auburn. I would like to see Carolina and Virginia Tech and Florida against Miami."

Boyd also revealed the date he plans to make his big announcement.

"It will be on October 10," he said. "We play our big rival South Point that night. They have some good recruits. This will be the big year. I will probably announce right before the game. I will probably put some hats on the table and do it right out there before the game starts."

Boyd also said he expects big things for Ashbrook (N.C.) this fall.

"We are looking real good. We went undefeated in the scrimmages. We have some young offensive linemen that are developing. Our offense is explosive. We will use two quarterbacks this year. We should have a real good season. We are expected to win the state championship."

"The season starts this Friday. We play against West Charlotte on Friday."

Several people are involved with Jheranie's recruiting.

"My mom is wide open. She doesn't really care where I go. My mentor Joseph Johnson is helping me through the process, but he is not really pushing me towards any school. I am also getting some good advice from my head coach," he added.
