    Tip of the cap to Slider who pointed out this offer yesterday. Right now, Rivals is the only site showing a CU offer. Decent feet as evidenced by the highlight vids.

    Pretty wide ranging offer sheet right now. Norcross is suppose to be one of the best teams in the country this year so if he has a good year, I would expect that list to grow.

    Yup, Norcross is a big time school and faces great competition. They've churned out guys to big time programs over the years.

    New Twitter post. Do we know more about this kid or why we are dipping into GA for him?

    I don't get why we are recruiting a guy out there originally from Il. Is he a legacy or did he contact the coaches?

    Good question. The AFA offer my indicate an interest in the region and also some interest in aviation/aerospace. We have strong programs related to those fields for a kid who looks like he might be academically oriented.

    To be clear, Josh Boyd played at South Gwinnett last year, where he rushed for 760 yards and 9 TDs. He transferred to Norcross for the upcoming season, where he is expected to replace a senior RB that signed with the 2013 class at Alabama. Last week, Norcross scrimmaged with another local HS power to get ready for the season. Boyd rushed for 60 yards on 9 carries in that exhibition, including a 2 yard TD run.

    For those interested, it looks like Norcross will be playing a nationally televised game on ESPN tomorrow at 7 pm est. They are going up against a seemingly talented team from Florida, so might be a good opportunity to see what kind of prospect Boyd is.

    Looks pretty good on ESPN. They're giving him the ball a ton.

    *Edit Norcross is getting blown out.

    The Norcross offense just has not looked to be in a good groove, at least not in the first half. Hadn't seen much out of Boyd to make a judgement one way or the other. Looked to have adequate speed the couple times he had a little room. Mostly though, the offense has been smothered. Thinking that Walters is our connection on this one. ESPN shows him as having interest from NCST (no offer yet) and I have to wonder of Walters became familiar with him last year with the Wolfpack. That's about the most I can reason from a connection standpoint.

    Looked pretty good to me. He's not a big guy by any means. Noticed they didn't list CU in schools he's considering. C'mon ESPN. Yeesh, Norcross down 55-0. :wow:
