Rumors have been swirling that Rivals100 quarterback Tajh Boyd could make his final college choice as early as this week.
The Hampton (Va.) Phoebus standout received an in-home visit from Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel last Wednesday night. The 6-foot-1, 208-pounder is also seriously considering Oregon.
Clemson has also come on strong down the home stretch in an effort to land the blue-chipper's fifth and final official visit.
The four-star recruit, one of the nation's elite quarterback prospects, received a phone call from Clemson's head coach, Dabo Swinney, and new offensive coordinator Billy Napier, Saturday night.
"They basically said I should have to at least come and take a look and give them a chance," Boyd said Tuesday evening. "See how unique and great it is there."
Is there a selling point for the Tigers?
"I would have a chance to compete as soon as I'm healthy," he added. "They are building a great class."
Could a trip to Clemson conspire before the decision goes down?
"I'm still undecided right now," the Rivals100 member admitted. "Depends on when I make my decision."
Boyd, who saw Clemson unofficially several years ago, was expected to take an official visit to Clemson this past weekend but things fell through.
Could a choice be right on deck? Or will it be later this month? And in what fashion will the nation's No. 3 dual-threat quarterback announce his verdict?
"Earliest would be Thursday and latest would be I don't know, probably be like before February," the nation's No. 51 overall prospect, according to Rivals.com, stated. "I'm having something like a press conference."
Clemson's coaching staff does not currently have a quarterback on its verbal commit board.
Boyd officially visited Ohio State on December 12, followed by a trip to Oregon on December 19. The 6-foot-1, 208-pounder officially visited Tennessee on October 24.
Napier and Tiger assistant head coach Danny Pearman have already conducted an in-home visit with the US Army All-American.
