Chad Boyd is a 5'10" CB who had 5 INT's this season for the Shaw Eagles out of Westwego, LA. Boyd, who holds 6 offers, obviously has many choices as to where he can continue his playing career. It appears however that the distance of one of his offers may be a deterrent, Northern Illinois. The 6 offers he holds are, Louisiana Tech, Tulsa, Northern Illinois, Tulane, Nicholls State, and McNeese State. He has narrowed his favorites to LA Tech, Tulsa, and Tulane.
Like many Tech recruits, acedemics are not a concern for Boyd, he reports a 3.0 GPA and an 18 on his ACT.
When asked about the Independence Bowl, he said, "it was a great game, I was impressed with both teams, and was a fun game to watch."
Boyd has official visits scheduled for LA Tech on January 9th, Northern Illinois January 16, Tulsa on January 23 or 26, and will visit Tulane during the week in January as it is in New Orleans, close to his home.
