Big Byrd Headed to Athens for Weekend

<b>C.J. Byrd</b> is one of the top recruits in the country. This five star athlete took a trip to <b>Clemson</b> last weekend for the South Carolina game and will head over to <b>Georgia</b> this weekend for their in-state battle against Georgia Tech. Does Byrd have any official visits set yet and does the possibility of <b>Spurrier to South Carolina</b> perk his interest there?

"I still do not have any official visits set," said C.J. Byrd. "I have talked with Georgia and Clemson about dates in January, but nothing is confirmed yet. I plan to take care of that soon."

What did Byrd think about his trip to Clemson last week?

"I had a good time, it was fun. My former teammate Reggie Merriweather (Clemson RB) had a good game, so that was nice to watch. I didn't like the fight, and I am really disappointed that Clemson can't go to a bowl game this year."

Georgia is the next unofficial for Byrd. What are his thoughts on that trip?

"I am looking forward to it. I have been to Georgia for a couple other games this year and I have enjoyed them. I like the atmosphere at Georgia, it is a lot of fun."

Byrd is not going to name any favorites until he takes his official visits, but their have been a couple coaching moves in the SEC. Could either of those affect Byrd?

"Florida was one of my final five schools, but I am not sure now. I will have to wait and see what happens there with the coaching situation."

A lot of rumors have Byrd looking at South Carolina now that it looks that the Gamecocks are bringing in "the ole ball coach", Steve Spurrier. Is that true?

"No sir, I am too far into recruiting now to look somewhere else. I have taken too much time getting to know these coaches, programs and universities to look at someone new with just two months before signing day."
