TE Thomas Boyce enjoys visit

TE Thomas Boyce discussed his official visit to Louisville this past weekend with InsidetheVille.com.

Thomas Boyce is a both a great blocking and pass catching tight end. He has a knack for being able to pull in difficult passes across the middle. "I had a great time," said Boyce. "They have great facilities. I really enjoyed meeting with the new coaches and players."

Boyce (6'6, 210), who was recruited by the previous U of L coaching staff, but he explained that he was pleased that Greg Nord has remained as the tight ends coach under new head coach Bob Petrino.

"It really worked out for me with Coach Nord staying there," said Boyce. "He's been recruiting me all along."

An offer was extended during his visit, but he has yet to make a decision. He told ITV that he won't be taking any more visits and that his final choice will be among Louisville, Wofford and Ohio University.

"I will sit down with my family and discuss each before I make a discision," explained Boyce. "Each school offers something different and are different levels of football. It's going to be a difficult choice. I will probably decide during the next week."

I asked Boyce about each of his favorites.

Wofford
"My older brother went there and played football, so I all ready know the coaching staff real well. They have good facilities. I plan on majoring in business and they have a great business school."

Louisville
"I like the level of football they play. I'm very pleased that Coach Nord is still there and that I would get to work with him, because of some of the past tight ends he has coached, like Ibn Green. I like the style of offense and that they use the tight end a lot."

Ohio
"Their coaches are really nice. They are a young staff. The enviroment there is really good. I like the campus and how it is located in a college town.

Boyce is fully qualified.
