DT Roderick Byers Profile
CUTigers recently caught up with Northwestern High School senior defensive tackle Roderick Byers, who talked on the phone last week to Clemson recruiting coordinator/wide receivers coach Jeff Scott.
"He was just talking about coming on an official visit," Byers said.
He'll make the official visit to Clemson on one of two weekends—Jan. 14-16 or Jan. 21-23.
"I'm looking forward to it. I'm looking forward to having a great time," Byers said.
Scott and Clemson defensive ends coach Chris Rumph were in Columbia earlier this month to see Byers play in the South Carolina AAAA Division II state championship against Goose Creek.
"I think the whole coaching staff was there," Byers said. "It was more than just Scott and Rumph."
Right now, four schools are sticking out to him.
"USC, Clemson, Georgia Tech and Oregon," Byers said, in no particular order.
Still waiting on an offer from Clemson, he does claim tenders from South Carolina and Oregon.
Byers plans on taking trips to Oregon and South Carolina. Dates for those trips have not been set.
Georgia Tech received a visit earlier this month.
"It went very well," he said. "I like the city of Atlanta."
Scout.com rates Byers with three stars and ranks him as the No. 64 defensive tackle in the class of 2011.
