Aaron Boyd draws a crowd

With a dozen scholarship offers already in hand and plenty more to come, Lexington Henry Clay wide receiver Aaron Boyd has become the hottest prospect in the Bluegrass State this spring. The Scout.com three-star prospect was in Louisville on Saturday for the 7 on 7 passing tournament and drew a crowd for much of the day.

With a dozen scholarship offers already in hand and plenty more to come, Lexington Henry Clay wide receiver Aaron Boyd has become the hottest prospect in the Bluegrass State. The Scout.com three-star prospect's list of offers includes the likes of Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Tennessee and Virginia, while others such as Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida and LSU are expressing an interest.

"I actually tried to narrow my list down to ten, but I keep getting offers, so it's really hard," Boyd told InsideTheVille.com on Sunday. "I didn't think that I'd get this much attention, so it's going to make my decision even tougher."

On Saturday, the 6-foot-4, 195-pound All-City receiver made the short trip west to participate with his team in Louisville's annual 7 on 7 passing tournament and the Cardinal coaching staff made sure to check in on him throughout the day-long event.

"I felt that I did well," Boyd said of his performance. "There was a point when most of their coaches were watching me, plus guys like Mario Urrutia and Sergio Spencer. At first you feel the pressure of them watching, but you get used to it and just have to show what you can do."

In addition to participating in the tournament, Boyd also spent a few minutes chatting with members of the Cardinals staff.

"I talked to coach Nord and coach Johnson a couple times," said Boyd, who also visited for the Cardinals spring game. "I feel good about Louisville every time I go up there. I'm comfortable with all the coaches and like how they do things."

As a junior, Boyd, who is the younger brother of former Kentucky and current Arizona Cardinal backup quarterback Shane Boyd, hauled in 37 catches for 453 yards and two touchdowns. With he's considering attending a couple camps during the next few weeks, Boyd will spend much of his time improving his game on his own.

"There are a couple of camps that I'm thinking about, but I'm mostly going to stay home and do training by myself," Boyd said. "The speed of the game is always getting faster, so I'm working on my overall strength and speed."
