Byrd Reaches Decision

Jesse Byrd has reached a decision...

Jesse Byrd, 6-8 SR PF Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O'Dowd, has committed to San Francisco, according to a source close to the recruitment.

Byrd, one of the top big men still on the board for 2005, chose the Dons after also considering Penn State, Lehigh, Pacific, Santa Barbara and several other programs.

Byrd is a very good rebounder and his offensive game has developed considerably in the last year.

Byrd joins a USF class that already includes Drew Shiller, Omar Samhan, James Morgan and Danny Cavic.
