One of the top quarterback prospects in Georgia's class of 2016 went to the first session of the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

Veterans High School [Perry] rising sophomore Logan Byrd recently spoke with CUTigers about that camp visit.

"I thought it went pretty well. I got to build a relationship with coach Morris…I really liked him. He's a nice guy. I thought it went real well," Byrd said.

The 6-3, 221-pound quarterback picked up on several things from the Tigers' offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach.

"One thing about Clemson is their tempo. They run spread, so do we at our high school. One thing is you've got to be quicker," Byrd said. "In college, windows get smaller. Everything speeds up a lot, exponentially. It's a big difference from high school."

Byrd visited Clemson earlier this spring for the Orange and White spring game.

"Everything is really close. It's like Athens. Basically, Clemson University is the town. I really like it," he said. "The stadium is really nice. It gets pretty loud, that's what I hear -- it kind of feels like home, to be honest."

Though Byrd has yet to receiver his first offer, he's also camped at Georgia, Florida and Alabama. Later this summer, he'll visit Miami, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Auburn and South Carolina.

A number of factors will be considered as he moves further along into the recruiting process.

"Education. Actually, I want to be an orthopedic surgeon as a profession," Byrd said. "And having the right coaches that are going to treat me right and push me, as a player and an individual.

"Great fans, all of that, which comes with being a big school, which is where I want to go, like Clemson."

In the weight room, Byrd has maxed out on the bench press at 265 pounds. His squat max is 375. At Alabama's camp, he ran a 4.61 in the 40-yard dash.

While splitting time at quarterback as a freshman, Byrd started six out of 10 games. He threw nine touchdown passes.
