Plyler on Boyd: "This was the big fish for the Tigers in this class. You have to give the staff a ton of credit here. Billy Napier and Danny Pearman did a terrific job pushing the right buttons. Also Dabo was terrific with Boyd on his official visit. Boyd is a fantastic quarterback. He played his entire senior season with a torn ACL so he learned how to move around in the pocket. He also became a very accurate passer. Ohio State coaches told him he reminds them of Troy Smith. With all of the physical tools I was surprised to hear his coaches talk about his biggest strength being his leadership skills. Here is a kid that says he does not even go out on Friday or Saturday nights to party. He appears to be a very focused young man."
