Roswell GA WR and Vandy commit Chris Boyd talks SR season and why he chose Vanderbilt.
Chris Boyd Update
Another area that Vanderbilt struggled in last season was in red zone offense. Chad Simmons, Scout.com's South Recruiting Manager, describes Boyd as a "red zone weapon" which should music to Vandy supporter's ears. Boyd is also a solid run blocker who could help Commodore running backs such as Warren Norman and Zac Stacy get even more yardage.
Boyd has been busy this spring finishing up his senior year of high school and preparing for his freshman year at Vandy. Boyd, who hears from head coach Bobby Johnson and assistants regularly, was planning on coming up to Nashville in July but talked to the VU coaches recently and he may come up in June. The fact that the VU coaches want him at Vanderbilt earlier could be evidence that they think he could make an impact as freshman. Boyd says he still needs to talk it over with his parents.
Boyd, who has also played basketball for Roswell in the past as a starter, decided to play only football this season so he could concentrate solely on that sport.
The future Commodore star is working four days a week following the Vanderbilt workout program for incoming freshmen. It consists of a lot of bench work. He says he just recently started the speed improvement workouts. Boyd says his weight is up to 207 pounds and his forty speed is sub 4.5 seconds.
Boyd is excited about starting his college career soon and Commodore fans likely can't wait to see what he can do on the football field.
