Aaron Boyd, 6-4.5, 192, 4.5, Lexington (Ky.) Henry Clay HS, is a 4-star wide receiver prospect ranked 26th nationally by Scout was very excited about his trip yesterday when he exchanged text messages with eDuck.com.
"I'm a Duck," wrote Boyd as he was waiting at Portland International Airport for the next leg of his trip back to Lexington.
However, when Boyd returned home he realized that he needed more time to make a final decision on where he wants to spend the next four or five years of his life.
"I'm not quite ready to decide," said Boyd of the process.
Oregon is one of four schools that Boyd is interested in. He also is considering Missouri, Kentucky and Arkansas.
"I'll make a decision on the 6th," was Boyd's answer to the question of when he'll decide what school he will be attending.
Malachi Lewis was Boyd's host in Eugene, but on Monday, Lewis was tied up with classes so Boyd spent most of his time with Jaison Williams.
Boyd indicated that Oregon Head Coach Mike Bellotti is due to visit him on Thursday. From then on it is a matter of deciding which program will have Boyd's services.
One obvious question was whether the long flight was a problem for Boyd in terms of making a commitment to the Ducks, and Boyd was clear in his response.
"No," answered Boyd if the cross-country trip being a factor in this recruiting equation.
