QB Tajh Boyd Profile

"I had a great visit," Boyd told CUTigers Sunday afternoon. "My parents really enjoyed my visit as well. My mom, dad and younger brother all came with me and we had a great time."

What was the highlight of his trip overall?

"The highlight was hanging out with coach Swinney," Boyd said. "I spent a lot of time with the coaches. I played basketball and pool with coach Swinney. He beat me in pool and in horse though. He's pretty good."

Five-star QB Tajh Boyd could be seen at Saturday's Wake Forest-Clemson game sitting with star Clemson RB C.J. Spiller.
And how would Boyd rate his visit on a scale of one to 10?

"I'd give it an 8.5," he said.

Boyd, who was also seen at the Clemson-Wake Forest basketball game Saturday afternoon in Littlejohn Coliseum, was hosted this weekend by Clemson rising sophomore linebacker Brandon Maye.

Boyd continued to talk about his visit:

"At first I didn't know much about Clemson. I am glad I made the trip. Now when I make my decision I won't regret anything. It was a good visit for real," he said.

"It definitely help Clemson's chances."

And what about his other top schools, Ohio State and Oregon?

"Honestly, they are all about even," Boyd said. "I like Ohio State and Oregon as well as Clemson. Any school that I go to I'm going to have to be ready to go in and compete."

A five-star prospect, he captured co-MVP honors by completing 7-of-9 passes for a remarkable 187 yards and three touchdowns to help lead the East on to a 30-17 win.

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

As far as timing for announcement, Boyd says he's getting close to a decision.

Very close.

"It is possible it will be this week. Yeah, it will be this week," he said. "I will have a press conference to announce."

Boyd is being recruited to Clemson by offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Billy Napier.
