CLEMSON — Weather canceled Tajh Boyd’s travel plans Thursday. But he’ll make it back to the Upstate for the main event.
The former Clemson quarterback previously committed, along with former South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw, to serve as honorary captains for tonight’s College All-Star Bowl at Furman University in Greenville. Neither will play, but they would administer the coin toss and be on hand for the 6 p.m. game featuring a few of Boyd’s Clemson teammates.
Boyd has been training in Boca Raton, Fla. in preparation for the NFL Scouting Combine, Clemson’s Pro Day and the 2014 NFL Draft. According to one of Boyd’s agents, Boyd will be able to catch a 2 p.m. flight into Greenville, and is expected to make the game on time.
Boyd’s autograph session with fans at a Travelers Rest, S.C. Wal-Mart in conjunction with Shaw was canceled. Boyd will jet back to south Florida Saturday morning, his agent said.
Boyd is captaining the Nationals Roster, coached by former Clemson coach Danny Ford, but not playing in the game. However, suiting up are ex-Tigers running back Roderick McDowell, linebackers Spencer Shuey and Quandon Christian, and long snapper Philip Fajgenbaum.
The College All-Star Bowl starts tonight at 6 p.m. and will be televised live by CBS Sports Network.
