Scout.com is profiling each member from the Midlands Region heading to The Opening next week at Nike…
The Opening: Previewing Kris Boyd
7v7 Team: Fly Rush
HT: 6'0 | WT: 180
Recruiting: Boyd is not yet committed. He is considering in-state programs like Texas A&M and Texas and out of state schools like Oregon and Florida State.
Scouting Report: An elite level athlete with tremendous burst and top-end speed. He plays both ways in high school at RB/WR and CB, but figures to be a defensive player by most once he gets to college and has a desire to play defense in college. He has turn and run ability and his size at the position gives him an advantage in one-on-one coverage against big, elite level wide receivers. All of those skills will make him a very high level rated prospect.
At Stake: It is an extremely deep year for talent at the defensive back position and Boyd is in a battle to crack in to the Top Five. If he can hang with elite receivers in on-on-one situations his case has been made.
