QB Tajh Boyd Profile
U.S. Army All American co-MVP and Scout.com five-star quarterback Tajh Boyd is already well ahead of schedule on his rehab from his knee surgery.
Boyd had the surgery shortly after announcing his decision to sign with the Tigers over Ohio State and Oregon during the last weekend in January.
"Rehab is going good," Boyd told CUTigers.com Monday evening. "I am ahead of schedule. If someone sees me walking they wouldn't know I was hurt.
"I go to rehab three days a week. I do lots of things like squats with a weight ball. I ride a bike. At first I could hardly move the pedals. Now I am going around in circles. It will stiffen up sometime, but that is expected."
Boyd says he has been fairly pleased with how his knee has responded since his surgery.
"I am pretty pleased with how well I am coming back," he said. "Obviously I wish it hadn't happened so I could do what everyone else is doing to get ready. But I am getting there."
When he's not rehabbing the knee, Tajh has been spending a good bit of time talking with the Clemson staff.
"I talk to the coaches pretty much all the time. When they finish up with the playbook I will get down there and start learning the plays. I am going down sometime around the end of March. I will finish some of the rehab down there," said Boyd.
The five-star quarterback also says he plans to do everything he can to get playing time this fall.
"The position battle is wide open. I don't want to be left out. I am going to do everything I can to get ready," said Boyd.
Tajh's younger brother, T.J., will make some high school in the upstate happy later this year when he transfers from Virginia. Which schools is T.J. looking at right now?
"He is looking at Hanna, Seneca and a lot of other schools. We may come down in the next week or so and talk to the coaches and visit some schools," replied Boyd.
Tajh has also been continuing to talk with several other members of Clemson's 2009 signee class, not to mention, five star running back Bryce Brown.
"I talk to Bryce [McNeal] and Rod [McDowell] almost every day. We are building this team camaraderie thing. I talk to everybody," said Boyd.
The prize recruit is also working two of the nation's best running back prospects.
"They are still in it with Bryce [Brown]," he said. "I know they are still in it, but his situation is unusual. I know they are also trying to get Marcus [Lattimore] for next year. I talk to Marcus all the time. He wanted T.J. to come down to Byrnes.
"I also talk a lot with [Jonathan] Meeks. He is going to start the same day that I do at Clemson. He is already finished up. We will probably be roommates."
