Recruiting is really starting to pick up for Rivals100 to watch 2009 quarterback Tajh Boyd out of Hampton (Va.) Phoebus. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder is claiming three offers up to this point.
"Recruiting is going pretty good," he said. "Everybody in the world is looking at me. I think Maryland and Virginia have offered along with Boston College. I also hear that Wake Forest is going to offer sometime soon. I'm just focusing on the season right now."
Do any of the offers stick out to Boyd?

"All of those schools are cool," he said. "I like Boston College a lot though with coach Jags there. He's a really laid back coach, he kind of reminds me of Pete Carroll.
"I'm also looking at visiting those schools. I want to get up to one of Boston College's games and Maryland sometime soon too. I'm also thinking about somewhere in the SEC, possibly Auburn for a visit if I can maybe after the season and perhaps Virginia Tech."
While Boston College is sticking out amongst the schools that have offered, one that hasn't offered also is catching his eye.
"I've been watching South Florida a lot and I like the way they run their offense. Hopefully they'll start sending me some stuff too."
Other schools including Virginia Tech, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech and others also show interest.
Obviously Boyd has no clear favorites, what is he looking for in a college?
"I'm looking at the atmosphere, how comfortable I am with the coaches," he said. "If the people are down-to-earth, that's a big plus. I'll also look at what kind of academics they have because I'd like to get my degree. Location won't be that big of a factor. My parents have said they'll move to wherever I go to school."
Following a state championship last year, Boyd has the Phantoms primed for another run now sitting at 8-0.
"The season has been good," he stated. "I've thrown for about 1,300 yards, 16 touchdowns and three interceptions. I also have 250-yards rushing and two touchdowns in eight games.
"We're having fun this season. This has been the most fun in my football career with guys like Dominick Davenport, Reid Evans and more. We're a balanced team and my coach has really opened things up this year. That's giving us a lot of versatility."
Boyd has been happy with his play so far.
"Yeah I'm pretty pleased," he said. "I'm a leader on the field and I've got a lot of poise. That's something scouts have told me.
"I'm pleased with the way I'm keeping my interceptions to a minimum. I just need to continue to work on my progressions."
