Boyd taking things slowly

St. Petersburg (Fla.) defensive tackle Javonta Boyd has over 10 offers to his credit, but he is currently focused on things other than recruiting.

"I'm just focused on getting my scores and staying healthy for my senior season," the 6-foot-3, 295-pound Boyd said. "Our first game is (tonight), so recruiting isn't as important right now."

Boyd, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.8 seconds, feels good about his team's chances this year.

"We have a lot of guys back this year, so I think we're going to be pretty good," he said. "We're a focused team right now."

Boyd, who also plays tight end, said several college programs are staying in touch with him on a regular basis.
