"ECU offered about a month ago," said Byrd. "I believe [UNC] is close to offering and me and the coach from Clemson, [Billy] Napier, are conversing – I don't know if [Clemson] is close to offering but we are talking."
In addition to the three aforementioned schools, Byrd is fielding interest from Wake Forest, N.C. State, and Virginia Tech.
Over the summer he plans to camp at Clemson, North Carolina, and East Carolina to help improve his recruiting stock.
During the spring, Byrd limited most of his football related travels to combines, but did snuck in East Carolina's spring game.
Currently, Byrd doesn't include his lone offering school among his favorites, but admits he could definitely see himself becoming a Pirate.
"Clemson is standing out and North Carolina is," said Byrd. "Clemson and North Carolina are equal. I wouldn't mind playing at ECU neither. It's a great atmosphere down there; they have a lot of excitement down there now. If all else fails, I would have no problem playing at ECU, I just want to play football."
As a junior at Thomasville (N.C.) High School, Byrd caught ten passes for 136 yards, and also helped block for a 3,000-yard rusher. For his accomplishments, Thomasville won the NCHSAA 1A State Title, and Byrd earned All-Conference honors.
