Is Clemson Still Involved with Byford?

Brett Byford, a top offensive guard prospect out of Hartselle, Alabama has maintained the Tigers in his top three for quite some time. Now that he's on his way to Lincoln, Nebraska to see the Cornhuskers, does Clemson still have a chance?

"Nebraska is probably more of a favorite now," said Byford when asked about his top schools. "I went to Georgia Tech last weekend and it was alright. The players were great and I'd say that everything went well overall."

Byford already made an official visit to Clemson several weeks ago.

"Clemson was good, I got to go to with Coach Bowden to church on Sunday and that went real well. Right now, I'd say my top four would be Nebraska, South Carolina, Clemson, and Georgia Tech in that order."

"I'm headed up to Nebraska this weekend, and if things go well there, that's where I'll probably end up," added the senior offensive lineman. "I'd like to get everything settled before the start of the year if possible."

For Byford, the Tigers apparently started falling down the charts after his main recruiter, coach Justin Watts, left Clemson to go to UT-Chattanooga. Watts was instrumental for Byford and after his departure things were never really the same.

"I'm just going to get on my knees and try to find God's will, that's the most important thing. Distance really isn't a factor, I'd rather travel a 1000 miles and be in the will of God then to stay down right the road and not be," added Byford.

As it stands now, it looks like the Nebraska Cornhuskers are the team to beat. We'll continue to keep you updated on any further developments with Byford throughout the coming weeks. Top Stories
