Former Oklahoma and also east coast resident Terrence Boyd has a new home in San Diego. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound small forward is also strongly leaning towards a Pac-10 school.
Over the weekend, Boyd traveled to Oregon State for an official visit during its rivalry game with Oregon.
"I liked it a lot," said Boyd about his visit. "I've been recruited by the Big 12 and the Big East all my life and always thought I'd play in one of those conferences. This is the first time the Pac-10 has recruited, and I like the style. Oregon State presses and it's a different style. They let you come in and do what you do. The visit made me even more impressed with the school."
As much as Boyd enjoyed the visit, he is not ready to make a commitment yet. He would still like to take at least one more visit, but the logistics of setting up that visit have become quite difficult with the suspension of Boyd's high school coach.
"We're trying to set something up with another school, but that has been difficult with coach being suspended," said Boyd. "I'm not able to see him during the day, so we are trying to work through different people now.
"But the big deal for me is I want to go somewhere where I'm wanted, and I know they are going to utilize me. I don't want to have to chase a school to be recruited. Right now Oregon State is showing me more love than any of the other schools."
Boyd, who is the No. 50 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, has another hearing on February 5 in an attempt to gain eligibility to play for San Diego High School.
