One of the nation's very best wide receiver prospects is Jheranie Boyd. Boyd, 6-2 and 184 pounds, showed his skills at Florida's Friday Night Lights. There, he was one of the camp standouts.
"Friday Night Lights was real cool," Boyd said. "It was just a great overall experience. Being here is the Swamp was unbelievable. I got a tingling feeling when I came out. It was just a lot of fun."
There was much more than that for Boyd. He was away from this camp with a big leader in his mind.

"Florida's going to be hard to beat. I got to be honest about that. I love the facilities. There are pretty girls all over the place. The coaches are great, especially coach (Urban) Meyer and coach (Billy) Gonzales. They are fun to hang around and very supportive. I love Meyer's personality and energy. I could certainly see myself here for the next three or four years. Like I said, Florida is going to be tough to beat."
Clemson is another strong suitor for Boyd and he says there are some other schools he wants to check out.
"I want to visit some schools like Clemson, Ohio State, Missouri, Oregon, USC and some others. I hope to make my decision during the season. I really like Clemson as well. I like coach (Dabo) Sweeney. He is just a good person."
Boyd camped this summer at Clemson. Earlier this week he visited Miami. Boyd will participate at Florida State's Showcase Camp later today.
Boyd is also a track star. This past spring he placed second in the state 100 meters (10.45). He also runs the 200 (21.3) and 400 meters (49.09).
"I would love to run track in college as well."
Boyd, from Gastonia (N.C.) Ashbrook High School, is a member of the Rivals100 (No. 33) and the 7th rated receiver in the nation. He was super all night at Friday Night Lights. He ran some nice routes and showed great speed and athletic ability. Boyd also caught everything in sight and was virtually unstoppable.
