ATH C.J. Byrd
6-3, 184, 4.5
North Augusta High School
North Augusta, South Carolina
"It was pretty good. I like the game and the fans. My favorite part was all the fans knowing who I was. That was really neat. I got to talk to Coach Richt for a while and they really showed my family a lot of love," C.J. Byrd said.
Has this changed things in his top 5?
"I like Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Clemson and USC. I don't have a leader."
What stands out about those 5 schools?
Florida: "I like Chris Leak, their offense and the coaches."
Florida St: "I like the overall program and Bobby Bowden."
Georgia: "It's not too far from home and they really have a great coach."
Clemson: "It's in-state, I have a former teammate there and they have a great offense."
USC: "I decided to get one far away team and it might as well be big time if I'm going to go away for school."
Byrd and his team have both seen a slow start to their season.
"The season has been OK. Were 1-2 so far and we play (tonight) against Lower Richmond. I've missed one and a half games so far with a high ankle sprain. I think I have about 5 catches and 18 tackles."
C.J. will be in Tallahassee this weekend for the game against Clemson and then back in Athens in 2 weeks for Georgia's showdown with LSU.
Byrd's Next Stop: Clemson - FSU
