It has been a tough year for four-star prospect Terrence Boyd, who has not been allowed to play for San Diego High School amid allegations of recruiting him to the school. His college options appear to be dwindling as well.
Boyd, a 6-foot-5, 225-pound small forward, is no longer listing Kansas State and Kentucky.
Oregon State, who was one time his favorite and a school he officially visited at the end of January, now has five commitments for 2009 with only three seniors on the present roster. Given those numbers, it doesn't look promising for there to be room for Boyd to be a Beaver.
Boyd still lists Pittsburgh and Connecticut, but there are no definite plans for a visit.
"I think I'll visit UConn," said Boyd. "UConn has always been one of my favorite schools. Pittsburgh and UConn have been talking to me, but I haven't worked anything out as far as taking a visit."
Just last week, Boyd did visit Western Kentucky, which is a new school to get in on his recruitment. Connections between former Oklahoma City head coach and now Western Kentucky assistant Ray Harper and Boyd's former travel team program Athletes First, which is based in Oklahoma, was the impetus for Boyd coming to Bowling Green, Ky.
"My AAU coach knows Coach Harper, so there is a connection there," he said. "I had a nice experience there. I was able to meet the players, and a lot of people mentioned Courtney Lee, who I see on TV every now and then."
Boyd, who is confident he will graduate, is waiting on scores from his first college prep test and will take another college prep test March 15.
He is the No. 50 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
