The 6-foot-3, 185 pound prospect traveled to the Valley on Saturday with his family. "I had a good time. It was a great time. I went with my parents and my brother and some teammates," said Byrd.
The Shrine Bowl prospect visited with a friend and former teammate before the game. "I saw my former teammate Reggie. I talked with him before the game. He just told me he was ready for the game. He had a great game."
Byrd was able to witness the fight from the recruiting section in Death Valley. "I don't have much to say about it. It's part of the game."
Coach Swinney spoke with Byrd, T.J. Williams and Rendrick Taylor on the sidelines before the game on Saturday. "He was just talking to us about coming and playing together at Clemson."
The final four remain the same for the North Augusta standout. "I'm still standing at four. I will probably take official visits to all four." Georgia, Clemson, Southern California and Florida State are the schools fighting for the prize recruit.
How big of an impact will early playing time have on his decision? "I can't say it's the biggest factor. If your ready to play then your ready to play."
Don't expect a commitment for a couple of months. "I will probably wait until closer to signing day," stated the 5-star recruit.
What position does Byrd believe he will play if he attends Clemson? "I will play receiver," stated Byrd.
The Palmetto standout is not getting any pressure from others on his big decision. "I will pretty much make the decision myself. I am not getting any pressure from my family or my coaches."
