With ten Division 1A scholarship offers, 6-2, 200-pound junior quarterback Tajh Boyd has become one of the most highly recruited players in the state of Virginia. The Phoebus (Hampton, VA) standout, who has visited several schools to this point in his recruiting process, has his sights set on narrowing his list of schools to five by July.
Of the programs that have offered, Boyd has visited Boston College, Tennessee (junior day), Virginia (three games last fall) and Virginia Tech (camp last summer). He also boasts offers from East Carolina, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Wake Forest and West Virginia.
“I’m trying to take everything in,” Boyd said. “The teams that have offered me are recruiting me hard, so I want to give everyone a fair shot. Right now, I’m trying to visit all of the schools that I can. I want to get comfortable with them. There are some schools I know I want to take official visits to. I’m just having fun right now.”
Boyd knows of at least two schools he would like to officially visit next fall or winter.
“I went to Tennessee’s junior day and really liked it. I definitely want to go on an official visit there,” Boyd said. “I want to take an official to BC. I kind of want to go on all five visits. I like the selection I have right now. I think other schools will offer me, but I like the schools that have offered me so far.”
Of the in-state Division 1A programs, Boyd says “I’ll probably go check them out. I’ve only been to Tech for the camp, so I probably need to check them out again. I’ve talked to Coach Beamer and he seems like he really wants me. I want to go to a school where I’m really wanted. I want to go where I know they would push me hard. Virginia Tech is a top 10 program every year.
“With Virginia, I talk to Coach Mike Groh all the time. He is a good guy. He just tells me he wants me there all the time. I went to three games last year including the Virginia Tech game, which was cool because it was a rivalry game. And they have good academics. Both in-state schools really do.”
