According to the Daily Press out of Hampton Roads, Virginia, Tajh Boyd is down to Ohio State and Oregon. Clemson has been making a late surge for Boyd, but he may not even visit this weekend as he planned.

"I've got it basically down to Ohio State and Oregon," he said. "I'm comfortable with those schools. And I'll probably commit in the next two weeks."

So, things are looking much better for the Buckeyes than many had been thinking lately. With that said, the rumors that Oregon is number one on his list may not be that far from the truth. The article does not mention any of Boyd's comments on the Buckeyes but instead, highlights what he says about Oregon.

"Oregon, their facilities are off the chart," Boyd said. "They have underwater treadmills and a whole lot of different technology some hospitals don't even have. That's a reason why Oregon is real high on my list."

Interesting stuff—the decision should come in the next few weeks.

The Buckeyes really could use a commitment from Boyd. I feel he could be a great quarterback, following Pryor. If you saw him in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, you know he is the real deal!
