"I thought it went awesome. My mom liked it. It wasn't what we thought it would be like at all. I thought it would be a smaller town. I liked the town feeling. It's awesome. I can imagine how it is in the summer or spring when the lake isn't frozen."
Boykin got to watch the current Badger team go through a spring practice and speak with the coaches.
"They scrimmaged the whole time, so that was pretty cool. They were telling me how they're in need of a wideout and the opportunity I have to come there and start right away as a true freshman is outstanding."
This was the first time Boykin got to meet the coaching staff and he says he left with a very favorable impression of Gary Andersen and his crew.
"They are definitely a players-first coaching staff. They put the players and kids before anything else. I talked to Coach Andersen and we didn't even talk about football. He said college isn't just about football. If you come there, getting a degree is not an option, it's a given. You will get your degree and anything less than that is unacceptable."
Next on the docket for Boykin is a visit to Michigan with his Core 6 seven on seven team next weekend. The visits and continued contact with coaches are leading him towards a narrowing of his list.
"I want to make my top ten after spring recruiting and then this summer, trim down to five."
And did this visit help Wisconsin move towards being in that group?
"It definitely helped a lot. I can see them being in my top ten easily. I really liked the coaches and players there."
