A day after eliminating the Baylor Bears from contention, Gilmer cornerback Kris Boyd pared another school from his list when the Alabama Crimson Tide missed the most recent cut:

Boyd did not clarify where there is an order to that list. The last several times he's released one, there was never any numbering next to the schools.

A cousin of former Texas cornerback Curtis Brown, the 6'0, 185-pounder took his official visit to Austin last weekend and is scheduled to appear in College Station this weekend for what will likely be his final official visit before deciding. Boyd was expected to visit Alabama, but the Crimson Tide were never a serious contender with a number of cornerbacks already committed, including Texas product Kendall Sheffield.

So it's another recruiting battle between the former conference rivals in a recruiting cycle that has been full of them. The scoreboard tilts heavily in A&M's favor to this point, but Boyd is considered a Texas lean by the 247Sports Crystal Ball, he named the Longhorns his leader briefly way back in 2013, will have a chance to play with his younger brother in Austin since the Horns have offered the 2016 linebacker and the Aggies have not, and was put on the back-burner for some time by the A&M staff as they pursued other targets.

If for no other reason, give Texas the advantage because he wants to play with his brother and Texas A&M hasn't yet extended a scholarship offer.

However, Demarco Boyd did send out this tweet after his brother's list came out:

It's not known when the elder Boyd will make his announcement.
