Boyd Willing to Listen

The Clemson Tigers were the team to beat for four-star wide receiver Jheranie Boyd going all the way back to last summer, but a disappointing season and a head coach changed dropped the Tigers from consideration. Can the Tigers turn one of the nation's top receivers with a late push?

The nation's No. 7 receiver believes Clemson made a good move by naming Dabo Swinney the new head coach.

"It sounds good to me, especially with me being a receiver. It is nice having the former position coach for your position as the new head coach," Boyd told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I got a heads up on some of this stuff. I heard Napier was going to be the offensive coordinator and quarterback coach."

The Clemson coaching staff has not been in touch this week, but they are expected to come by next week.

"I actually haven't talked with them this week. Coach Riggs said they would be by next week," said Boyd.

Will the four-star receiver give the Tigers another look?

"I don't know yet. I have no idea. I want to talk with them first. I will listen to them, but I am still committed to North Carolina right now," replied Boyd.

So how firm is his commitment to the Tar Heels?

"I am firm," replied Boyd.

The Tigers will make a push to see if they can get an official visit from the Ashbrook (N.C.) standout. What will it take for Clemson to get another look?

"I just have to ask them some questions. Carolina gives me the opportunity to play early. I know Clemson does also. I just need to talk with coach Napier and get some more information," replied Boyd.

The star athlete is now using his skills to help Ashbrook on the court.

"It is actually going pretty good. I have only played in two games so far," said Boyd.

Two more football games are ahead for the Under-Armour All American and Shrine Bowl standout.

"I am looking forward to the Shrine Bowl. I want to spend time with some of the other players," said Boyd.
