Some recruits like to end their recruitment before their senior season gets underway. Clariton High School’s (Pa) Tyler Boyd isn’t one of those recruits. FoxSportsNext recently talked with Boyd to see where he’s at in the recruiting process.

Tyler Boyd (6’1/180) didn’t take any unofficial trips this summer, instead focusing on his development through the camp circuit, continuing to focus on improving his team and growing into a senior leader.

“I’ve been working on my leadership. I’m a senior now so I want to help out the other guys,” Boyd said.

“The summer has been great. I’ve been traveling around the country competing against the best.”

And his hard work has paid off. With 17 total offers on the table, Boyd has a lot to dissect over the next six months until signing day. Although he says there isn’t one clear cut front runner for him yet, one school has been in contact with him most all summer long.

West Virginia is the team that’s really pushing for me. Coach Holgorsen is always sending messages to the quarterback commit (Chavas Rawlins) about how much they really need me and how I am a perfect fit for their offense.”

Boyd says West Virginia is recruiting him as a wide receiver, while other schools are classifying him as an athlete. Playing running back, receiver, cornerback and safety, Boyd does it all for Clairton High School.

He will hold off until signing day to make a decision but he knows exactly what he’s looking for in a college program.

“It’s just going to be how comfortable I am with the coaches, the players there and the overall relationship with the program.”

Boyd added he plans to take all five official visits but it remains undetermined where.

He currently holds a 3.3 GPA.
