Los Angeles Jordan two-way standout James Boyd, the City Section player of the year, said Sunday he would announce his college choice at 7 p.m. Feb. 1 after returning from his official visit to Washington next weekend.

USC, which just hosted Boyd during his official visit over the weekend, appears to be a strong front-runner.


‘Right now it’s SC,’ said Boyd, who has also visited Oregon State. ‘Washington has to come with a miracle.’

USC picked up Boyd in a Lincoln Town Car during his visit and put him and other recruits up in the downtown L.A. Marriott.

‘He had the five-star treatment,’ Jordan Coach Elijah Asante said.

UPDATE: After checking with Boyd, Asante said Monday afternoon that the star recruit was picked up in a Lincoln Town Car, not a limousine.
