Fourth time this year for Boykin
Since January of this year, four-star wide receiver Miles Boykin of New Lenox (Ill.) Providence Catholic has visited Notre Dame four times, the most out of any school in his top ten. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound athlete is currently considering Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon and Virginia Tech. Of those schools, Notre Dame has received the most number of visits. "It was awesome," Boykin said. "I got to see all the freshman moving in. It was really my first time hanging out with a lot of the players for a long period of time. I got to see how I would fit in with the team." Boykin bunked with incoming freshman tight end, Nic Weishar. He also spent time with upperclassmen C.J. Prosise and Chris Brown. "It was nice to get that vibe that I felt like I belonged and that I really got along well with all of them," Boykin said. Boykin also spent time with Notre Dame assistants offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock and linebackers coach Bob Elliott. "Coach Denbrock showed me how they would use me in their offense," Boykin said. "He said at first I would start outside because of my size, but once I learned the offense, he would move me all over the place because he thinks I'm athletic enough." Boykin plans to cut his list of ten to five after he visits Florida (June 19) and Michigan State (June 27). August is when he plans to make a final commitment. His other most recent visits have been to Missouri and Michigan. Boykin is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 25 wide receiver in the class of 2015 by Scout.com.
