Some things are just too big to pass up. Maybe that is the best way to phrase the situation that Humble (TX) defensive tackle Paul Boyette is faced with right now.
On Friday, Boyette will be involved in a playoff basketball game. Soon after, he will be on the highway to Austin.
"We have a playoff game, but my family got a hotel for Friday night because we are going got the Texas junior day on Saturday," Boyette said.
No doubt that the 6-foot-4, 280-pound defender Boyette has been vocal in his feelings towards the in-state program. Now it is just a matter of if the word comes down that those feelings are mutual.
Recently, Boyette stated that programs like Utah and Stanford have offered and now Florida is in the mix as well. And sure, he is excited at all of the schools that have shown interest and extended an offer, but what is the primary objective for this weekend?
"I want to take a closer look at the campus. I also hope that I can pick up an offer on Saturday," Boyette said. "It would be a big deal if that were to happen because that is my dream school and I have been wanting to play for them since I was little."
For many of the athletes who feel this way and are faced with this situation, with a Texas offer in hand, there is usually 24-48-hour period before the call is made.
In Boyette's case, it may be a bit sooner.
"It may take a moment. It may even take a couple seconds, but I'm pretty sure I will have my mind made up on where I want to be," Boyette said. "I know where I want to go."
Boyette finished with 51 tackles (19 for loss), five sacks and nine knockdowns as a junior. He also has offers from Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Notre Dame as well.
