Things Are Picking Up For Boyce

2017 L.A. Valley DE/LB Rayshawn Boyce (6-5, 250) has seen recruiting hit a fever pitch over the past couple of weeks...

"Things have definitely picked up for me," Boyce told in a recent interview. "I have offers right now from UCFNew MexicoFresno StateSan Jose State, Bethune-Cookman and Prairie View A&M and I had one from San Diego State last year, but I am not sure if I still have one from them or not."

So far, Boyce has taken just two official visits and he's working on setting up more, but he's not sure yet which school he'll visit this weekend.

"Right now, I am not sure who I will visit this weekend," Boyce said. "Bethune-Cookman is trying to set one up with me, Fresno State is trying to set my visit up and so is San Jose State, so I have a decision to make here pretty quickly."

As a sophomore for the Monarchs this past season, Boyce finished with 12 tackles, 4.5 sacks and 7.5 tackles-for-loss while working his way into the front seven rotation.

"I played linebacker, defensive end and safety at different points," Boyce noted. "I'm pretty versatile, so my coaches liked to put me in different places and let me make plays.

"I missed the first three games, but I fell like I have the speed and length that coaches are looking for on defense and that's why they are after me."

After finishing up his prep career at Salesian (Los Angeles, Ca.) High School, Boyce signed with Arizona Western and spent two seasons with the Matadors, but he was injured before the start of his sophomore season, so he left and enrolled L.A. Valley in the spring.

"I really liked the program here and I had a great relationship with coach (C.J.) Clayborne," Boyce said. "He told me he could get me to the next level if I came and worked hard and I just felt like I had a great bond with him."

Boyce will finish up his two-year degree in May and he will have three years to play two starting this fall.
