The Clemson Tigers had the final in-home visit with five-star quarterback Tajh Boyd Friday night.

"It was a good visit," he told CUTigers shortly afterwards. "It was my last in-home visit. They made a good impression. I am going to evaluate everything over the weekend.

"Coach Swinney, coach Napier and coach Pearman came in tonight. They just talked about the opportunity I would have at Clemson. They will look out for me as a person, not just as a football player. They talked about how they will make me a better person and how I can help the team."

Tajh's family also enjoyed the visit.

"They really like the coaches. My little brother likes them as well. We are all going to sit down and decide this weekend," said Boyd.

The Virginia standout plans to let the nation know where he will be playing on Monday.

"Yes I am going to have a press conference on Monday to make my announcement," said Boyd. "I don't have a decision yet."

What did he learn new from the visit today from Clemson?

"They really just covered all of the bases. They went off of what I learned on my visit. I have basically graduated all ready, so I might be able to get down there a little earlier," replied Boyd.

Boyd, who remains the nation's highest rated uncommitted quarterback prospect according to, broke down what he likes best about each of his favorites:

Clemson: "I like the type of people the coaches are. They are an SEC type school in the ACC. It is a nice college town."

Ohio State: "They have the tradition. They are on the peak of a national championship every year. You can make a big name for yourself there."

Oregon: "Their offensive coordinator is an innovator. He does a real good job of teaching the spread offense. They have Nike on their side."

How will he work towards a decision over the weekend?

"We will talk about everything this weekend. We will try to make the decision as a family as much as possible, but it will be my decision in the end," he added. "They are all three good schools. The ultimate goal is to graduate, but you also want to compete for championships. I would like a chance to win a Heisman." Top Stories
