This may sound a little cliché but Kobe Boyce is blowing up.
He is in the midst of organizing a trip to the South Plains hoping for an offer from the Red Raiders, yet in the meantime picked up his fourth offer, second from a Power 5 program, when Arkansas called Tuesday night.
The 6-foot-1, 175-pound cornerback said each school just started talking with him 2-3 weeks ago.
"Everybody says they love my size and speed," Boyce said.
Boyce said he's been talking with new Texas Tech cornerbacks coach Karl Scott for the past couple weeks and that it was Scott who invited him to visit the South Plains this weekend.
"He's a laid back guy and he's just cool to talk to," Boyce said. "He said if the coaching staff likes me then an offer may come."
Boyce is currently unrated by Scout but he tallied 40 tackles with three for loss, two interceptions and eight pass defenses last season for Lake Dallas and holds offers from Arkansas, Colorado State, Iowa State and UTSA. He said he's also hearing from Tulsa, OU, TCU and Texas (he vistied for UT's junior day last weekend).
Having visited Texas Tech before for a summer football camp a couple years back, Boyce, who said he will be making the trip either with his dad or his coach, is somewhat familiar with the campus and Lubbock, but definitely wants to see what the program has to offer.
"I know it's a powerhouse football team and they've had great players come out of that school," Boyce said. "I just want to know how they run their practices and just see the facility. I also want to see where we stand when it comes to an offer."
