Shaun Boykins - Wide Receiver
ON3 Industry Comparison (Lists all recruiting rankings)
OFFERS: UK, WVU, Marshall, Miami (OH), Central Michigan
Boykins was not challenged much in high school which makes it a little harder to get a feel for how his game will translate to college. However, Boykins has great size and displays a willingness and ability to use that size to his advantage. He routinely wins jump balls and shrugs off defenders in the open field. His top-end speed shows up in his highlights but I do wonder if he is a bit too stiff and rigid in his movements.
The upcoming season will not likely be a season of opportunity for a young receiver with whom Jeff Brohm is bringing in via the portal. However, depth in the receiver room has not been consistent as of yet and I think there will be genuine competition to be the future of the group. Boykins should be able to come in and battle guys like William Fowles and Jaden Thompson at the outside receiver spot.
