Clairton football star Tyler Boyd said he is once again "looking at" Penn State.
Boyd, a standout receiver-running back at Clairton, was considering Penn State this summer, but after Penn State was hit with NCAA sanctions, Boyd decided he really didn't want anything to do with the Nittany Lions.
Last night, Boyd said he is re-thinking Penn State and was thinking about visiting the Nittany Lions for Saturday's game against Wisconsin. But he's not sure he will go to the game. Clairton plays Friday in the WPIAL Class A championship.
Boyd visited Pitt last weekend along with teammate Titus Howard, who already has committed to Pitt, Central Valley receiver Robert Foster and Belle Vernon offensive lineman Dorian Johnson. Johnson ended up committing to Pitt Sunday.
When asked whether Johnson's decision could persuad him to Pitt, Boyd said, "It doesn't persuade me, but it got me thinking about Pitt. I'm definitely considering it."
