Landstown (Virginia Beach, VA) star junior Xavier Boyce plans to make visits to Florida and Virginia Tech this month, with a visit to U-Conn being a possibility as well. The two set visits are important for the 6-4, 200-pound Boyce, who has been offered by Virginia Tech and is very interested in Florida.
“On April 14th, I’m supposed to go to Florida for a junior day,” Boyce said. “They haven’t offered me yet. They have just invited me for the junior day right now and we’ll see where it goes from there.”
