Scout Spotlight: Kris Boyd

Get to know four-star defensive back Kris Boyd (Gilmer, Texas), one of UT's biggest remaining targets.

Boyd (6-foot, 181 pounds) is one of Texas' top remaining targets in 2015. Unfortunately for the Longhorns, the rest of the country is pursuing him as well.

The athletic speedster is the No. 7 cornerback and No. 59 player overall in 2015.

Here's our Scout evaluation of the talented defensive back:

"An elite level athlete with tremendous burst and top-end speed. He plays both ways in high school at RB/WR and CB, but figures to be a defensive player by most once he gets to college and has a desire to play defense in college. He has turn and run ability and his size at the position gives him an advantage in one-on-one coverage against big, elite level wide receivers. All of those skills will make him a very high level rated prospect."
