ATH C.J. Byrd
6-3, 184, 4.5
North Augusta High School
North Augusta, South Carolina
The 5-star prospect made the trip to Clemson with his Coach Mark Owens and two of his teammates. "It was a great trip," said Byrd Sunday evening. "I really did enjoy it. I had a great time man. We got home about 2:30 last night."
Byrd was very impressed with the crowd that rocked the Valley. "The crowd was loud. It was a nice crowd. I liked the atmosphere."
When asked when he will begin setting up his official visits, the prize recruit responded, "I don't know yet. I haven't set them up yet or anything but I still have the same top 5."
Georgia, Clemson, Southern Cal, Florida, and Florida State are the five schools Byrd is considering.
Even though the outcome wasn't what Byrd expected, the trip may have improved the Tigers' chances of landing the 5-star prospect. "They lost, but everyone loses. It really didn't matter. If anything the they went up (in my eyes) because of the trip," said Byrd.
The North Augusta standout had a chance to spend some time with the Clemson coaches yesterday. "It went great. I love talking to Coach Bowden and Coach Swinney."
Byrd hopes to be back on the field soon after suffering an injury earlier this fall. "I'm doing better. I plan to go out there Monday. I want to see if I can cut."
