Greg Hoyd had some positive conversations with the new USC coaches at the Trojans' junior day several weeks back. Now, the Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta linebacker said he's hopeful things pick up with the Trojans.
Like many other prospects, Hoyd was told he would have to attend summer camp to earn an offer from USC, and the 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect is fine with it.
Hoyd is planning to keep in touch with the USC coaches moving forward and a visit to summer camp is certainly being planned.
"SC was great," Hoyd said. "I enjoyed myself a lot. The coaches were all good. The facilities were really nice so everything was great there.
"I met the new defensive coordinator and I met all the other new coaches. I was talking to coach (Ed) Orgeron for a little while. They just had a lot of history and a lot of wins.
"They told me summer camp, too. That's definitely a focus for me. I want to get up there for the camp because USC has all these guys in their backyard, so they want us to come to them. They're evaluating everybody because they want only the top guys."
So far, Hoyd has offers from Duke, New Mexico State and Utah. The Vista Murrieta standout also said that Washington State has gotten seriously involved.
Hoyd said he recently had a lengthy conversation with new Washington State linebackers coach Ken Wilson and that the Cougars are very interested. An offer could be on the way as Hoyd's off-season continues.
"He just came to Washington State from Nevada, so he really likes me," Hoyd said of Wilson. "He's going to evaluate me and he's going to come up here in a little while to see me. He wants me to stay in touch and build the relationship."
