Will he or won't he? Five-star quarterback Tajh Boyd was set for an official visit this weekend but now that has changed.

After a visit from Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel Wednesday, things appear to have changed for five-star quarterback Tajh Boyd.

In an interview with BuckeyeSports.com Wednesday night, Tim Boyd, father of Tajh Boyd said his son probably would not make his scheduled official visit to Clemson.

"No, I don't think he's going to do that because he's got to catch up on his online classes," Tim said of a potential trip to Clemson. "Him being away a week in Texas, he has a lot of stuff he has to turn in by Monday. Those classes will help him graduate early and leave early in March."

Thursday afternoon CUTigers talked with Mr. Boyd one more time to see if that was still the case.

And apparently, it is.

"He does need to catch-up on some school work for an online course he is taking," he said. "He has gotten way behind and is in jeopardy of not passing the course. If he doesn't pass the course he won't be able to graduate early. He has a lot of work to do this weekend.

"He has been gone for three weekends after he went to Ohio State for an official visit, then to Oregon for an official visit and then to San Antonio for the All American game."

The picture should be clearer later tonight as the Boyd family finds out more about what is outstanding with the online course.

"We will know more tonight. I need to talk to Tajh when he gets home and to his teacher. We will know more tonight," said Mr. Boyd.

The good news is the prize recruit is still planning to visit Clemson according to his father, but the exact timing of that trip is not yet known.

"Right now we are leaning towards still coming to Clemson, but is not looking good for this weekend. We may end up coming next weekend so he can catch-up on his work this weekend," he said.

Boyd is currently ranked as the No. 4 quarterback in the nation according to Scout.com.
