He’s no stud quarterback like Tajh Boyd, but Georgia running back Josh Boyd could be a difference maker in the Syracuse backfield somewhere down the line. The Norcross (GA) High School product is having a solid senior stint in the state of Georgia’s sixth-best high school program. As a member of the 2014 recruiting class, Boyd has his services down to a two-horse race between Syracuse and Washington State.
The 5’10”, 160-pound back averages just less than 110 rushing yards per game and has scored eight touchdowns on the ground for the Blue Devils. Boyd visited WSU back on September 21 and Scout reported that “everything stood out” to him. Scout also notes both the Orange and Cougars are the only schools Boyd has “high interest” in. He’s got offers from lower-tier FBS teams such as Air Force, Buffalo, Indiana, Northern Illinois, Ohio, South Alabama, Toledo, UAB and UNLV.
