ESPN gravitates toward TCU’s Boykin

Trevone Boykin is “brimming with confidence,” ESPN analyst Rece Davis said after he and fellow analysts Danny Kanell and Joey Galloway visited the TCU quarterback Thursday.

“He is a really sharp and engaging guy,” Davis said. “You can just see the confidence brimming from him, not only on the practice field, but also in the video room. He was very sure of himself, sure of what he was looking at, very much in command when he was explaining what TCU’s offense was trying to do and what he saw on the defensive end.”

A film session with Boykin, Kanell and Galloway was part of ESPN’s SportsCenter coverage Thursday.

“Sort of offhandedly, he said, ‘I know this offense so well, I could talk about it all day,’” Davis said of Boykin following the meeting. “That’s something you like to hear from your quarterback. Not only that he understands it and knows it, but that he just sort of revels in being able to talk about it and dissect it.”
