Boyd Shines At TCU Camp

Gilmer, Texas 2015 defensive back Kris Boyd was one of the top playmakers at a recent TCU camp.

Several standouts from east Texas made their way to Kilgore on Wednesday to participate in TCU's one-day camp. It was the first camp of the summer for the Horned Frogs coaching staff.

The 2015 class was well represented with names such as Daylon Mack, Justin Dunning and JaMycal Hasty in attendance. Another standout was Gilmer defensive back Kris Boyd.

At 6-foot-1, 190-pounds, Boyd turned in one of the better performances at the camp; especially at cornerback. Boyd also tested well with a 4.48 forty.

"I think I could've done better, but I turned it on at the end," Boyd said of his camp performance.

Boyd already holds an offer from the Frogs, which is his lone offer at the moment. Several teams like his ability on both sides of the ball where he excels at corner and runningback. Boyd likes playing both positions but prefers defense for the next level.

"I like defensive back but I do enjoy playing runningback because I get to score touchdowns," he said. "It feels pretty good."

Boyd does have a familiarity with TCU and hopes to make a visit to the Ft. Worth campus this summer. He does his best in keeping track of how well they do each year and was impressed with their 2012 season despite their youth.

"I like them, they had a pretty good team with a very young team with freshmen and sophomores," he said of TCU. "I want to visit and see the facilities."

Boyd says he likes TCU's proximity to Gilmer, but says location won't play a factor in his decision.

"Wherever I play ball, it's a blessing," Boyd said.

TCU isn't the only program on the radar for Boyd; others such as Texas, Alabama, Oklahoma State, OU, UCLA, Utah and Georgia are among those showing interest. Boyd feels Texas could be the next team to extend an offer.

"I don't have any other offers but Texas is pretty warm," Boyd said of potential offers.
