Elite Receiver to Attend UCLA Camp

Anthony Boyles, the 6-3, 195-pound receiver prospect from Gardena (Calif.) Serra who was considered the best wideout prospect at the Scout.com Combine, said he expects to attend the UCLA Three-Day Camp later this month, and there's a particular reason for him to go...

Gardena (Calif.) Serra receiver Anthony Boyles (6-3, 195) will attend UCLA's Three-Day Camp later this month,. It is there that Boyles said UCLA will be extending a scholarship offer.

"UCLA said that they want me to go to there camp to see me," said Boyles. "I'm going to be there on June 26th and they told me they were going to offer me in person."

Boyles, who has some swagger to him, doesn't lack for offers, with 23 by his count, but an offer from the Bruins is one he has been waiting on for some time.

"Washington, I'm feeling them the most," said Boyles. "They're my leader. My top five is Washington, Washington State, Oregon, Oregon State and UNLV. If UCLA offered, they'd move right in there behind Washington."

Boyles said an early decision wouldn't be happening for him. "I want to take all my trips. I'm not making an early decision. I want to go through the whole process before I decide," said Boyles.

Boyles said he may take unofficial trips to UCLA and USC this summer, but that is uncertain. What is certain is that he wants to do all of his official visits during the fall so he can have schools to compare.

This summer, Boyles said he would be doing passing league for Serra, while not participating in the B2G Elite Football Program next weekend to play in a passing league tournament at Redondo Beach. He's also been busy this spring trying to get games scheduled with teams that have prominent cornerbacks.

"Dominguez and David Ross, I'm trying to get them to play us. And Poly and Donovan (Warren), we want to play them," said Boyles.

This spring, Boyles has dabbled at cornerback, but he has no plans on playing defense in college. "I keep telling my coach I'm a receiver. I'm not going to play corner in college, but I'll play it to help my team. But I'm a receiver," said Boyles.

Earlier this spring Boyles attended the Scout.com Combine in Los Angeles and was considered the best receiver on the day, just edging past San Diego (Calif.) Mira Mesa receiver Markques Simas.

Last fall, Boyles had 23 receptions for 467 yards and five touchdowns, while adding 115 yards on the ground on 23 carries.
