High school career

Floyd attended Cretin-Derham Hall High School in Saint Paul, Minnesota, where he recorded 59 receptions for 1,247 yards (21.1 avg.) and 17 TDs as a senior and added 497 rushing yards on 43 carries (11.6 avg.). He also returned 16 punts for 373 yards (23.3 avg.) and four touchdowns, helping to lead his high school team to a 13-1 record and appearance in the state championship game. Floyd was named Minnesota Player of the Year twice by the Associated Press and Gatorade (2007, 2008). He was a USA Today High School All-American in 2007[2] and was picked to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.

Considered a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Floyd was listed as the No. 6 wide receiver in the nation.[3] He chose Notre Dame over offers from Michigan, Iowa, Florida, Ohio State, and Miami (Fl.).

College career

As a true freshman at Notre Dame, Floyd played in 11 of Notre Dame's 13 games on the year, only missing the final two games of the regular season (Syracuse and USC) due to an injury sustained early (third play of the game) against Navy. He recorded seven touchdown receptions on the year, breaking the record for an Irish rookie (previously held by teammate Duval Kamara's four TDs in 2007), while catching 48 balls to break another Notre Dame freshman record in receptions (Kamara had 32 in 2007). His 719 receiving yards set the mark for Notre Dame first-year players (Tony Hunter had 690 in 1979).

Floyd began his sophomore season in stunning fashion with 3 touchdowns and 189 yards receiving on only 4 receptions. He was named National Performer of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards.[4] Later in the season, Floyd suffered a shoulder injury, which would prevent him from playing in 5 of Notre Dame's 12 games. He would return from that injury and record a total of 9 receiving touchdowns and almost 800 receiving yards in just 7 games of action.
