03/07/2013 - 2013 TCU Pro Day: Boyce had surgery Tuesday and was on crutches. As Rob Rang reported Wednesday night, Boyce has a fracture in the fifth metatarsal of his right foot, an injury he sustained during combine drills, which makes his performance in Indianapolis even more impressive. At the combine he was among the position leaders in the 40-yard dash (4.38), three-cone drill (6.68), long shuttle (11.26), bench press (22 reps) and broad jump (10-feet-11-inches). Boyce is expected to be sidelined six to eight weeks as he rehabs his foot. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/07/2013 - The 5-11, 206-pound Boyce is a natural playmaker who emerged as a standout once given the opportunity to play as a redshirt freshman in 2010. He played in every game that year, emerging as a big play threat for Andy Dalton with 646 yards and six touchdowns. He enjoyed his best statistical season in 2011, leading the team with 61 catches for 991 yards and nine scores. His numbers dropped a bit in 2012, though much of this can be attributed to the fact that the team's incumbent starting quarterback, Casey Pachall, only played four games before substance abuse issues made him unavailable.
Boyce currently ranks as the No. 20 wide receiver on NFLDraftScout.com's board and is projected as a fifth-round pick. His stock had been rising due to the impressive workout and his solid tape. That could change if teams are concerned about his recovery. Boyce's agent, Carter Chow of Yee and Dubin Sports, did not immediately return repeated attempts for comment. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/07/2013 - Josh Boyce was as impressive in the measured drills at the 2013 combine as any wide receiver in Indianapolis, ranking among position leaders in the 40-yard dash (4.38 seconds), three cone drill (6.68), long shuttle (11.26), bench press (22 reps) and broad jump (10'11). What makes his sparkling performance even more noteworthy: Boyce did it despite a broken foot. NFLDraftScout.com has learned that Boyce has a fracture in the fifth metatarsal of his foot, an injury often characterized as a "Jones" fracture.
Put simply, Boyce has a broken pinkie toe. The injury, according to a league source, may have taken place at the combine and is expected to keep Boyce from participating at TCU's Pro Day Thursday. The injury can heal on its own. Many athletes, however, elect to have surgery. When left uncorrected, the fracture could develop into a chronic condition. The surgery and rehabilitation would take six to 12 weeks, threatening Boyce's availability for May minicamps and possibly threatening his stock in a highly competitive receiver class. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/09/2013 - TCU wide receiver Josh Boyce will forego his final year of eligibility and declare for the 2013 NFL draft. Boyce, who enrolled early at TCU in spring 2009, earned his degree in December, but had one more year of NCAA eligibility. He is the first TCU Horned Frog to leave early for the NFL draft since Cory Rodgers in 2005. Boyce had 66 receptions, TCU's single-season record, for 891 yards and seven touchdowns last season. He was an honorable mention for the All-Big 12 awards.
Boyce leaves TCU as the all-time school leader in touchdown catches (22), second all-time in receiving yards (2,535) and third all-time in receptions (161). Boyce's decision to declare for the draft came soon after All-America cornerback Jason Verrett's decision to remain at TCU for his senior year. The cornerback from Fairfield, Calif., led the nation in passes defended (22) and led the Big 12 in interceptions (6). - J.D. Moore, TCU 360
12/10/2012 - 2012 ALL-BIG 12 HONORABLE MENTION (MEDIA): WR: Josh Boyce, TCU, has been selected Honorable Mention All-Big 12 Conference (Media selection) for the 2012 college football season. - TCU football

11/22/2012 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: TCU at Texas, Nov. 22 -- TCU's recent failures against Texas could have been part of the reason the Horned Frogs did not make the cut when the Southwest Conference disbanded and just four of its members were asked to be part of the original Big 12. TCU has won just one of the last 28 meetings between the two rivals. The only time they met after the SWC breakup was in 2007. While the game promises to be big for TCU, just because of the opportunity it presents to play the flagship school in the state on a national stage, the date of the game and the Thanksgiving traditions involved make it big for Texas, too. The Thanksgiving game will be the first for TCU since 1928.
The Frogs have posted all their Big 12 wins on the road, going 3-1. The game will be the 150th for Gary Patterson as coach at TCU, which needs one more win for 600 all-time. PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Josh Boyce - The most consistent threat among TCU receivers during Big 12 play, Boyce has averaged 13.1 yards per catch against league rivals, including a 94-yard touchdown he broke to tie West Virginia at the end of regulation. - The Sports Xchange
11/10/2012 - Week 11 Prospects To Watch: Josh Boyce, WR, TCU: It may have been Tavon Austin who took scouts' collective breath away a week ago when West Virginia and TCU faced off, but ultimately it was Boyce and the Horned Frogs who, of course, were the last ones laughing. Boyce may lack Austin's elite manueverability but he is a reliable route-runner with strong hands and the physicality one might expect given the redshirt junior's 5-11, 205-pound frame. All eyes will naturally be on No. 2 Kansas State and its Heisman candidate quarterback Colin Klein in this week's Big 12 showdown in Fort Worth. From an NFL scouting perspective, I'm more intrigued to see how Boyce fares against a very sound Wildcats' defense. This game begins at 7 p.m. ET and will be televised by Fox. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
09/09/2012 - WR Josh Boyce had two touchdown grabs against Grambling State to boost his career total to 17, tying the TCU record held by Cory Rodgers and Mike Renfro. It was Boyce's fifth career 100-yard game receiving. He has a catch in 21 consecutive games.
09/08/2012 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: Grambling State at TCU, Sept. 8 -- TCU carries the nation's longest winning streak (eight games) into the season, part of a .784 winning percentage posted at the school by 12th-year coach Gary Patterson. Patterson will become TCU's all-time winningest coach with a victory in the opener. The Horned Frogs are beginning a season at home for the first time since they blanked Baylor 27-0 in 2007, when Andy Dalton made his debut as a freshman quarterback. TCU has won 10 straight home openers under Patterson and 26 of its last 27 home games. Grambling is coached by Doug Williams, a former standout who was the MVP of Super Bowl XXII for the Washington Redskins. KEYS TO THE GAME: For TCU, the biggest need is to be attentive to detail and operate efficiently. Do so and the Horned Frogs should win handily. The one snag is Grambling State already has played a game and knows what to work after surrendering a comfortable margin and falling 22-21 against Alcorn State. RB Dawrence Roberts flashed his potential, gaining 98 first-half yards on the ground for the Tigers before leaving with cramps. Special teams could play a role for TCU after Grambling muffed two punts inside its 15-yard line and allowed Alcorn State to score nine points off those mistakes. PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Josh Boyce - After falling just two receiving yards shy of the 1,000-yard mark a year ago, the junior pushed himself during the offseason. Boyce emerged as a leader in the experienced receiving corps, which is experienced, but includes just eight scholarship players. - The Sports Xchange
09/08/2012 - TCU got off to a fast start in its first game as a Big 12 Conference member and debut of its $164 million completely redone stadium. The 20th-ranked Horned Frogs also made Gary Patterson the winningest coach in school history. Casey Pachall threw three touchdown passes, two to Josh Boyce, after the Frogs had already scored on special teams and defense in a season-opening 56-0 victory over Grambling State on Saturday night. After being one of only four FBS teams that didn't play on college football's opening weekend, TCU had 531 total yards against FCS team Grambling (0-2). That included 276 passing by two quarterbacks who combined to complete all 17 passes attempted -- the most in FBS history without an incompletion. Deante' Gray, one of nine true freshmen to play for TCU, returned a punt 70 yards for a touchdown only 2 minutes into the game. After fielding the ball, his first touch in college, Gray broke two tackles on the near side of the field, cut toward the middle and sprinted to the end zone. - AP Sports
07/18/2012 - 2012 BILETNIKOFF AWARD PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Josh Boyce, TCU, has been selected to the Preseason Biletnikoff Award Watch List for the 2012 college football season, presented to America's top college football wide receiver by The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc. Boyce, a first-team all-conference selection last season, led TCU with 61 receptions for 998 yards and nine touchdowns. He was two yards shy of just the second 1,000-yard season in TCU history (Reggie Harrell, 1,012 yards, 2003). Boyce's 61 receptions tied for the third most in a season by a Horned Frog. A junior from Copperas Cove, Texas, Boyce had a career-high 163 yards and three touchdowns on five receptions in a 36-35 win at Boise State. His 2-point catch with 1:05 remaining provided the Horned Frogs' go-ahead points in the game. He had a career-high nine catches for 96 yards in the season opener at Baylor, marking the most receptions by a Horned Frog in a contest since 2005 (Cory Rodgers, 10, at Oklahoma). Boyce's 15 career touchdown catches in just two seasons have him tied for fourth on TCU's career list and are just three shy of the top spot (17, Rodgers, 2003-05; Mike Renfro, 17, 1974-77). - TCU football
07/13/2012 - Top-five TCU prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 2. WR Josh Boyce (5-11, 203)...Because of the value of the quarterback position Pachall gets the nod over Boyce as NFLDraftScout.com's top-rated TCU prospect at this time, but the playmaking receiver was the Horned Frogs best player last season. Boyce caught 61 passes a season ago for 998 yards and nine touchdowns. He was especially productive in the upset victory over Boise State, gathering a career-high 163 yards and three touchdowns against the Broncos, including the go-ahead two point conversion with just 1:05 remaining. Boyce lines up outside in the Horned Frogs' scheme but projects nicely as a slot receiver in the NFL due to his build, competitiveness and savviness as a route-runner. Entering his junior season, Boyce has already caught 15 touchdown passes at TCU, needing only three more to tie the school record. The combination of Pachall and Boyce could be a special one in 2012. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
