Boyd visit to WVU creates a stir

Written by Jenn Menendez on .

It’s unclear if Clairton standout wide receiver Tyler Boyd has any intentions of reversing his commit to Pitt and heading down I-79 to West Virginia. What we do know is he created a bit of a stir when he visited West Virginia over the weekend – but will that amount to a change of heart?

From colleague Mike White’s Varsity Blog in the Post-Gazette today:

“Clairton football star Tyler Boyd created a stir with Pitt fans when he visited West Virginia this weekend. But it shouldn't have been a surprise. Heck, when Boyd committed to Pitt at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, he talked about possibly visiting a few other schools.

But according to Clairton assistant coach Eric Fusco, Pitt fans can relax. Boyd is still very much committed to Pitt. Fusco has been involved in Boyd's recruiting all along.”

Should be interesting to see what happens.

West Virginia returns very little proven talent at the receiver position after losing what is arguably one of the team’s greatest one-two tandems in history in Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey.

National Signing day is next Wednesday, Feb. 6.
