Miles Boykin Jersey

Miles Boykin: “I didn’t see it until after the draft, but that to me just makes this place that much more special. That means there was 499 people who went through the same thing I went through you know the rigorous class load, and obviously the schedule that we go through in just playing at an elite level and going to school at an elite level that shows that this place is truly special.”

Jack Nolan: “Now where were you when you got the phone call from the Ravens and what was that moment like both for you, your family, and your friends?”

Miles Boykin: “Yeah, so I was watching with my mom, my dad, my brother, my grandparents and we were just sitting there just watching the draft and it was funny because the TV was kind of a little bit late, so it was really three picks ahead of when they were actually picking because Baltimore traded to get me. They traded to move up to get me.”

Miles Boykin: “So, when they called me, I didn’t know who was calling my phone. I didn’t know what team was getting ready to draft me but then, when they told me, it was awesome. My mom started crying.”

Miles Boykin: “I couldn’t really hear what they were saying at first because everybody was yelling. But, yeah, it was a moment I’ll never forget.”

Jack Nolan: “You lead a very talented Notre Dame team last season, 872 receiving yards, 8 touchdowns. Let’s talk about these past few months since the Cotton Bowl. What was the piece of information or the pieces of information that you received that convinced you that you should go into the draft this year?”

Miles Boykin: “Well yeah, just talking with my family. The biggest thing is that they wanted what was best for me. I’m graduating in May. Talking to my coaching staff and just getting feedback from people that I trust, that you know the biggest thing for me was that I have my degree so there’s no way I could make a wrong decision.”

Miles Boykin: “It really just came down to you know what I wanted in football and how I picture myself in the league, and you know I think things worked out great for me. You know being selected in the third round, you know I was a top 100 player in the country this year, so for me it’s all about what was best for me and my family and now moving forward and how can I continue my football career.”
