Spencer Boyd – Safety USF

Spencer Boyd - Safety USF
Spencer Boyd a football player from USF recently made headlines when he tweeted that former Notre Dame All American freshman DE Aaron Lynch was making a visit to USF with the intent to sign up with Skip Holtz and the Bulls.  Both played high school football for Cape Coral (near Fort Meyers) Florida.

Hmmmmm.  That name sure rings a bell.
Of course that Spencer Boyd!  Former Irish 2010 early enrollee, safety, from Cape Coral Florida who lasted less than a semester at Notre Dame then transferred for “personal reasons” to USF and back to the sunshine state.  He was one of two position safeties; both EE’s who departed early.  (The other was Chris Badger who departed for a two-year Mormon Mission to South America).  Chris is due back on campus this summer.  The loss of two safeties from the same recruiting class is still being felt.

Well what has that rascal Spencer been up to?  The long and the short of it is that he sat out the 2010 campaign as a red shirt freshman ineligible to play because of the transfer.  In 2011 he saw action at safety and special teams in 7 games and recorded three tackles including one causing a fumble.
Spencer was suspended for the final three games for what has been described and reported as “in-house things”.  Then in January it was announced Spencer was gone from the Team.  The latest part of the soap opera includes a recent permission to practice with the Team this spring while still under scholarship.  He will be expected to participate in summer football activities while paying his own way for summer school.  A coaches evaluation will be made in time for fall practice as to his scholarship status and readmittance back on the Team.

Let’s hope Lynch does not follow down a similar path.
