Notre Dame at top for Boyd … just barely

Cape Coral FL defensive back Spencer Boyd talked with GBW last night to discuss a few issues: why Notre Dame is his leader, where does Michigan stand, and the six new offers he recently received.

"Familiar" is the relationship that Florida cornerback Spencer Boyd has with Notre Dame ... and it is also the reason The Irish lead the Wolverines just barely.

"Notre Dame is my leader, and that's because I spent more time on their campus," he told GoBlueWolverine. "But Michigan is right there as well."

Although Notre Dame just recently came to visit Spencer, thoughts of Michigan coming down to see him are not too far behind.

"I am looking forward to seeing Michigan come to my school as well. I am going to call Coach Frey and find out when he is coming down here."

Michigan is still heavily in the mix for Spencer Boyd's services -- talking with him he feels very strong about the Wolverines.

"Michigan is still Michigan and I like them."

Boyd is not being recruited only by the Michigan coaches.

"I talk to Ricardo Miller he always talks to me about Michigan. Lo Wood talks about Michigan and Notre Dame. There are other recruits that talk to me about Michigan also."

What is clear is that he is in no hurry to make a decision.

"I am not going to rush making a decision; I am just going to do more research. Michigan and Notre Dame are recruiting me the hardest, but I am definitely open to all the schools that have offered. Right now I feel like I am in a good place as far as recruiting goes, with the offers that I have even if I don't get another offer. If I do receive more offers that would be great too."

Spencer just picked up five more offers: North Carolina, South Florida, Pittsburgh, Rice and Illinois. The Miami Hurricanes are starting to come around as well and there might be an offer coming from them soon.

Things should start coming into focus for the Boyd family, because Spencer is trying to make his decision -- "around the beginning or middle of June ... maybe the middle or the end," he says.

 Schools have just a little more then one month to make an impression on the talented defensive back out Florida.

They better hurry or they could 'just barely' be left behind.
