Boyd has blast at USC

There is a good argument that long time USC four-star athlete commit James Boyd (6-4, 211, 4.7) from Los Angeles (Calif.) Jordan is the best two-way player in the state if not the nation. There aren't many who made Boyd's impact as a two-way player.

Boyd led the state of California in passing yards with 4,266 and 44 touchdowns while completing 62.2 percent of his passes while playing quarterback. He even was a threat running the football, as he led his team in rushing with 608 yards on the ground. He also had two rushing touchdowns.

On defense, Boyd had to fight through double teams, and still he racked up 104 tackles, eight sacks and two fumble recoveries.

How many two-way players made that kind of impact and influence on a football game the way Boyd did as a senior?

With Washington in hot pursuit, Boyd took his official visit to USC this weekend.

"James is feeling really good about USC," Jordan head coach Elijah Asante said. "He is still going to take a trip to Washington, but they will have to something spectacular."
