Boyd's A Blue Devil

Jared Boyd (5'10, 170, CB) a three star prospect out of Georgia has called it for Duke.

"I've committed to Duke," said Stone Mountain (Ga.) standout Jared Boyd. "Really you can't go wrong with the education and the program is ready to be restored."

Boyd, rated a three star prospect and the nation's No. 44 cornerback according to, chose Duke over a number of high major offers including Stanford, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Memphis, Indiana, and Southern Miss. However it was the Duke coaching staff that ultimately made the difference.

"I knew a little about Duke at the start [of the recruiting process], but once I started learning more and getting to know the coaches I knew that Duke was the right place. I feel like I can trust them and they have my best interests first."

Boyd, a cornerback, also plays a little wide receiver for his high school and he returns kicks and punts, too. Last season he had 60 tackles, three interceptions with one returned for a TD, and he also returned three punts back to the house.

At Duke he'll immediately factor into the battle to get on the field on the defensive side of the ball.
