Tajh Boyd Set for Signing Day

The gem of the 2009 recruiting class, five-star quarterback Tajh Boyd, goes on the record with CUTigers.com to discuss everything from his rehab to his pursuit of the top player in the nation.

Last Friday five-star quarterback and current Clemson verbal commitment Tajh Boyd had surgery to repair his knee.

"It went good," said Boyd. "Today was actually my first day of rehab. My surgery went good and right now as far as rehab I am ahead of schedule.

"I can do a lot of things people can't do the first day or rehab. I will have rehab every day this week.

"Then it will be three times a week next week. Today was the assessment day. Tomorrow I will do some weight bearing exercises and strength stuff."

Amazingly enough, Boyd is already walking around easily without crutches only a few days after the surgery.

"Yes I am walking around already. I have to use the crutch a little when I go up and down the stairs, but that is about it," said Boyd.

Wednesday morning may be one of the last times Tajh visits Phoebus High when he signs his LOI with the Tigers.

"We are having signing day at the school. I believe the plan is to sign around eight o'clock. The local media will be there. Since I am finished with school I don't have to go up there any more. This may be the last time doing stuff up there," said Boyd.

The enrollment plans are already set for the five-star quarterback.

"I am going to enroll at Clemson on May 11. I will continue my rehab up there. I want to get up there and learn the plays as soon as I can," said Boyd.

Next month the Virginia standout plans to head down to Clemson to start learning the offense.

"I am looking forward to getting to Clemson," he said. "I am going to go down sometime in March. I want to learn as much as I can mentally to be ready to compete. I will hang out for a week or something and learn what I can."

Like many of his other future Tigers, Boyd has been working his good friend and U.S. Army All-American game Co-MVP Bryce Brown to Clemson in recent weeks, and even more so now that he is committed.

"I actually talked to Bryce yesterday. He likes Clemson," he said. "I will keep talking to him to see if we can get him at Clemson. I think we have a great shot."
