You have no favorite boards.
Boyd needs to make his mind up. I can see if this is October or even December. But we are a week away. This is getting ridulous.
Actually he has until April 1 to make his decision. Pryor did this.
He's gone. Count him to WVU.
Hey, let's be honest I have always thought this and couldn't figure out why WVU wasn't stronger on him. Boyd is in no way, shape or form, a slam dunk as a WR in a conventional sense at this level. He is also not a running back. But in WVU's position, he is that guy that can take reverses, line up in the backfield, bubble screens, etc ala Tavon Austin.
Pitt has had guys like this say Cam Saddler, Ron Jones, etc...and they have made hardly little impact over 3 different coaches.
I think Tony Gibson is selling him on being the next Austin, and selling Shelton Gibson on being the next Stedman Bailey. How can you blame guys in this position not to get excited by this? Of course, what he is not telling them is Geno Smith is no longer there.
What is most disappointing, is the continued lack of loyalty by the top kids in the area. What Pitt needs to do is realize this works both ways. And stop taking borderline kids just to "maintain relationships".

Time to move the LOI day to November.
Again, the most disappointing thing is the lack of loyalty by the local kids. Not that they should be, it is their decisions and life. But because Pitt football has been so lax and mediocre, no "juice" behind and the lack of kids anymore being true leaders, you get kids more star crossed than ever.
There used to be pride in playing for your hometown. Not anymore. And again, they have no obligations to stay locally.
Ive said it before and ill say it again, i wish pitt was a good enough program to play hard ball even with big time recruits. At this point, half of me just wishes engram would call up boyd and tell him tough luck and have a nice life. this is getting really really old. a commitment should mean something.
