Boggs takes in Kent State spring game

As the school year winds down the recruiting process has picked up for Cody Boggs, a 5-foot-8, 165-pound defensive back from Stow, Ohio.

Boggs, who recently transferred from Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary to Stow-Monroe Falls, visited Louisville in March and on Friday he attended Kent State's spring game, where he was impressed by the play of the Golden Flashes' smaller defensive backs.

"I liked it at Kent," he said. "It was pretty cool. I'm a shorter guy so I loved seeing some of the smaller guys play."

The visit also gave Boggs the opportunity to check out Kent State's football facilities and to see the improvements the Flashes made to Dix Stadium.

"It changed a lot since I was there last when I was playing youth football," he said. "The weight room and indoor field looked good too."

Kent State hosted a few dozen prospects and they all had the opportunity to see some former KSU players that have moved on to play in the NFL.

"I didn't get the chance to meet them but I saw James Harrison (of the Pittsburgh Steelers)," he said.

Boggs had the chance to talk with KSU assistant coach Eugene Baker, who spent several years in the NFL.

"He seemed like a pretty cool guy," Boggs said. "Then I talked to the defensive tackle's coach. He recruits my area and he seemed cool to. He's coming to my school in two weeks."

Last fall Boggs started at St. Vincent-St. Mary but transferred to Stow-Monroe Falls. He's excited about his new surroundings.

"I like the fact that Stow was turning things around with a new coach," he said.

Boggs plans to hit several camps this summer as part of the Raw Talent Sports bus tour.
