Lake Dallas CB Kobe Boyce has been an instrumental piece to the Longhorns' 2017 signing class puzzle. Boyce has made his pledge official, signing his NLI with Texas.
Boyce has been a key Texas commit who has helped first-year head coach Tom Herman
and his staff recruit the 2017 class.
Inside the Numbers
Star Rating: 3-Star
Height, Weight: 6-foot, 163-pounds
High School: Lake Dallas
Position Rank: No. 52
Midland DE Rank: No. 9
Texas DE Rank: No. 6
Boyce is a cornerback who has good size at the position and will only look more impressive as he adds some weight, but has the height to match-up with the opposing team's No. 1 outside receiver. He is a strong talent against the run and will come up and secure the edge. Again, that will be an even bigger strength as he adds natural size and power with natural development. He played a huge role in his team's on the field success in 2015, as he locked down one half of the field and team's rarely want to pass or run on the side he lines up on. - Greg Powers, Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst.
