Greg Hoyd remains happily committed to Washington State but the three-star linebacker from Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta is hearing from an SEC school and that means things could get interesting.
"I talked to Kentucky," Hoyd said. "I have to see what's happening. The coach said he's going to go back to the other coaches and see what they're going to do.
"That's the SEC. That's big right there. That's saying I can play in that league so that's a big thing for me. It was an eye-opener for me."
The 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect has been committed to Washington State since mid-May but he's planning some official visits this fall.
Vista Murrieta is once again loaded with talent so a deep playoff run is expected. That means Hoyd could wait until much later in the recruiting process to take official trips and make his final decision closer to signing day.
"I'm still working on some visits," Hoyd said.
"New offers can come in and things like that so I'm going to wait to see what the season provides for me. We'll have 14 games and then playoffs so things could happen. A lot of schools want to see how my senior year goes."
Hoyd, who also has offers from Duke, Fresno State, New Mexico State, NC State, Toledo and Utah, said despite some new interest he's still very pleased with Washington State.
The three-star linebacker talks all the time with the Cougars' coaching staff but he still wants to explore other options just in case something interests him.
"I stand good with them right now," Hoyd said. "I talk to the coaches every day. They're on me. Everything is good with them. They're getting ready for when I come up there in a year or so."
