"I'm pretty much got the schools down that I'm considering," Boyd told KSR by phone. "All of them are equal and it's now a matter of me sitting down with my family and breaking it all down."
While Kentucky fans hope the local product wants to stay home and represent, each of the other three programs bring something to the table that entices his interest.
"Arkansas I know will give me the ball as Coach Petrino is bringing in the offense he used at Louisville there and you know he's going to throw the ball. Oregon is one of the best teams in the PAC-10 right up there with USC and you'll have a chance to play for a National Championship. It's also the home of Nike and they've got great facilities. Missouri is now a Top-5 program that throws the ball a lot and is bringing in quarterbacks to continue to do so. "
As for the hometown Wildcats there is still a pull and it's a strong one.
"Kentucky is in my backyard and Coach Brooks has been there and with me for a long time. I'll have a chance to play early and also be in front of my family and friends."
While he's not ready to name a favorite, Boyd spoke as if he's got some idea of what his future might hold. Boyd who said he'll know before the week is out about his future, also said at this time he'll wait and make his announcement on signing day at his school. While Kentucky fans wait to hear him say he'll be a Wildcat, they'll be clinging to any news that may come out of the Boyd camp.
