Michigan State Spartans Take Last Shot at Convincing Tyler Boyd
Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio will have one more shot to land Tyler Boyd, the coveted four-star recruit from Clairton, Pennsylvania. Boyd says Pittsburgh is his No. 1 choice currently, but also is going to visit East Lansing next week.
Boyd previously said he might announce his commitment Saturday at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, but that didn’t happen, and now he will be giving the Spartans one last chance. Boyd is tired though, and wants to get the process over with sooner rather than later.
“Even if I do commit (Saturday), I still am going to take a visit (to Michigan State) in January,” Boyd told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I am ready to make a decision, but then again, I‘m not. I‘m just getting tired of all the hype.”
Boyd (6-foot-1, 168-pounds) scored 117 career touchdowns at Clairton while playing mostly running back, but also a bit of wide receiver.
In his senior year, Boyd rushed for 2,584 yards and 43 touchdowns, and also had 13 catches for 295 yards and three TDs. He led Clairton to their fourth straight state championship and during his high school career, Clairton went 63-1. He will probably be a wide receiver in college, but that remains to be seen.
Boyd apparently has a good relationship with Pitt wide receiver coach Bobby Engram, which could give the edge to the Panthers. One of Boyd’s high school teammates also will be going to Pitt, so the Spartans probably only have a small chance. But, a small chance is better than no chance.
