Former Notre Dame cornerback Spencer Boyd is coming to USF this fall.

Thank goodness he did not pick WVA.

I think enrolled or transferred would be the right word, not committed.

But great news!

He used commited correctly there .... It would have been incorrect if he had said "has commited"

Committing is probably the right word to use. He can't enroll for more than a month, and I don't know that there's anything binding he could sign. He's accepting a scholarship offer, and that's usually how we use "commit" when it comes to players joining a program ...

Not much for following recruiting, but doesn't he also have to be cleared by the USF academics committee or has that already been done? 

Greg's piece says "got the grade he needed on a summer class to assure him of being admitted at USF, his father Scott said Monday."

We've been surprised before.

Doesn't Notre Dame have relatively high admissions standards for its athletes?

If so, it's probably just a matter of meeting some transfer requirement, considering he enrolled and took classes in South Bend. His dad sounds pretty confident, I'd say it's nothing to worry about.

Since he got an A, I dont think he'll have a problem with any committee

Well apparently he needed another class to meet USF enrollment expectations.  It's just that we typically hear from our committee before we get all giddy.  I'm guessing they've already green-lighted this student-athlete.

Boyd had to finish out the course at ND in order to leave there in good academic standing.

    With the climate going on in NCAA athletics, you’re either moving forward at a hard pace or you’re not. I think what intrigued me the most is they’re very determined to become a big player nationally.
