"Right now he's not committed anywhere," Callaway coach Pete Wiggins. "I'm getting calls every day about him. I don't know where he's going to go. He likes several schools but as far as committing he hasn't done that. He's great, though. I'm excited about him."
Byrd, 6'6, 260-pounds, plays defensive end and tight end for Callaway, though he probably projects as an offensive tackle in college. "He's doing well for us," Wiggins said. "He's a big ole' tall kid and he is still young. He's 17 now."
Byrd holds scholarship offers from Louisville, Arkansas, Purdue, Indiana, Marshall and Clemson among others. "There's about nine of them," said Wiggins. Louisville and Arkansas appear the two front-runners at this point in Byrd's recruitment.
"He really likes Louisville," Wiggins said. "He does talk about them a lot. He just says he really likes Louisville."
