2014 LB Greg Hoyd III (6’2, 210, 4.6) of Vista Murrieta HS in California registered 94 tackles, 10 TFL, four forced fumbles, two interceptions, and two defensive touchdowns last season. As a result of his stellar play, the junior standout has three offers with many more programs in hot pursuit. “Duke, Utah, and New Mexico St. have offered,” he told Deep South Recruiting. “Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Mississippi St., Texas A&M, Miami, Maryland, USC, and Nebraska are recruiting me.”

Last weekend, Hoyd visited the USC Trojans to get a closer look at their program. “It was a great visit. They have good facilities, the meeting and weight rooms were awesome. I got to meet some of the players and I talked with Coach Ed Orgeron and Mike Eckler, they said they were switching to a 50 defense and they envision me as an outside linebacker.”

His father, Greg Hoyd Jr., played at Ole Miss in the 90′s. The younger Hoyd has serious interest in returning to the southeast to play his college football. “I want to play ball with the big boys and see what it’s all about. I’m going to unofficially visit Vanderbilt, Kentucky, and Maryland, and Ole Miss wants me to camp in June.”

Hoyd also has interest in the Hurricanes. “It’s Miami. Ray Lewis and players like him; the swagger, the beach, a new environment at Miami. It would be great to attend. If they’re serious about me, I’ll camp there this summer.”

On the field, he feels his strengths are “my football IQ and aggressive play. At the line of scrimmage, I like to play games with the offense before the snap, try to time my blitzes through the gaps.”

Currently, Hoyd lists no frontrunners. “I’m still wide open, still trying to collect offers. When I narrow things down to five favorites, I’ll take my official visits. I don’t have any timeframe to make a commitment. I want to make the best, most informed decision possible.”
