WR Floyd pulls fourth offer

Baltimore (Md.) Loyola wide receiver Jordan Floyd snatched up his fourth scholarship offer recently. What is the latest for the 6-foot-2, 215-pounder?
"I just got another offer from Marshall," he said. "It's a great school, I definitely am going to check it out.
"I know it's in West Virginia and know a bit about it, but I haven't looked too much yet."
The offer from the Thundering Herd joins scholarships from Connecticut, Maryland and Temple.
With regards to his recruitment, Floyd has a bit of a plan.
"My parents and I want to decide by September 1st," he said. "I don't know if I'll take visits this season or not, I'm not sure I will wait that long, but I've really got to talk to my parents more about it.
"I really like Rutgers, Maryland, Boston College, Connecticut, Temple and Marshall."
All except Boston College and Rutgers have offered.
"I think they both just want to see my first three games and then they'll make a decision from there," he said. "If I decide I want to wait for them I may hold off on a decision, as of right now we are planning to hold off."
On the field, Floyd is looking ahead to the season.
"I definitely want to bring it back where we were a couple years ago," he said. "The last two years we had 6-5 seasons and that's not good. I feel we're a real underdog and we can prove everybody wrong.
"For me, I'm really trying to improve my route running and on defense becoming more of a defensive presence. I want my presence felt."
