Visit to KU sealed the deal for Boyd-Anderson

Carmon Boyd-Anderson had a plan. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound running back from Jacksonville (TX) High School was going to take some official visits once his senior year of football was complete. Thankfully for Kansas fans, the three-star prospect had a change of heart. After taking an official visit to KU during the weekend of December 8, Boyd-Anderson gave a commitment to the Jayhawks.

"I don't think Carmon had originally planned to make such an early decision," said Jacksonville head coach Randy Copeland. "He wanted to wait until the end of the season to start taking some visits. Carmon had quite a few offers from schools in the Big 10 and Big 12, so he wanted to take some visits and look over all of his options.

"Well, after his visit to Kansas, he just loved everything about the program," he added. "Carmon decided to give a commitment to Kansas and didn't need to see any other schools. He was sold on Kansas and decided to give a commitment to the coaching staff. I really thought he would take some more visits, but Carmon just loved Kansas."

Boyd-Anderson, the No. 36 ranked running back in the class of 2007, had scholarship offers from Kansas, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas State and Oklahoma State.
