Jessie Byrd: Wide Open

Jessie Byrd, one of the top remaining posts in the west for 2005, gives us the latest...

Jessie Byrd, 6-7 SR PF Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O'Dowd, told us recently that he hasn't started to narrow down his list.

"I'm still hearing from new schools -- it seems like every week there's a different school," said Byrd. "So I'm pretty much wide open right now."

Byrd told us that two schools showing interest in him are Temple and Utah.

"They've both been calling my coach," said Byrd.

We asked Byrd if he had any trips planned after his high school season.

"I'm going to take an official visit to Penn State," said Byrd. "And I'll probably take an unofficial visit down to UCLA. As soon as the season is done, I'll take the trips."

Byrd said he's averaging around 18 points a game this season.
