FSU football has one blue-chip defensive end (DD Holmes) committed in its 2024 recruiting cycle and has another big-time defensive end target that will likely officially visit during the season.
However, that’s not stopping the coaching staff from continuing to evaluate players. They invited three-star Georgia Tech edge commit Jordan Boyd to their Seminole Showcase this weekend.
He worked out for the coaches and was impressive enough to earn an offer.
Boyd posted the offer via his Twitter account Sunday afternoon:
Boyd committed to Georgia Tech in March and holds offers from other Power 5 programs like Missouri, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest. He lists at 6’3″ and 220 pounds and hails from Silver Bluff High School in Aiken, South Carolina. Boyd ranks as the No. 757 player and No. 68 linebacker nationally.
He ranks as the No. 10 player in the Palmetto State. Boyd had never visited FSU before the camp visit, so it was good he was willing to workout for the coaches even though he’s already committed to another school. Georgia Tech offered a scholarship in January, and he visited their camp about two weeks later.
A couple of months later and he was a Georgia Tech commit. However, he hasn’t taken any official vists yet and could be a player that sees his recruitment blossom later. He showed a solid first step off the edge and looks athletic, transitioning from the outside linebacker position to the edge.
I wonder how long his arms are at his height, though? Boyd aspires to be an architect and wants to get into civil engineering, so it makes sense why he’s interested in Georgia Tech. It’ll be interesting to see how hard the staff pursues.
He could be a nice player to pick up down the line if they don’t hit on their other defensive end target. We’ll see if they look to get him back on campus.
