Navy target running back Arkeem Byrd (Jenkins High School, GA) camped at Georgia over the weekend. Since GoMids.com introduced him to the Navy nation in May he has also been offered by Western Kentucky bringing his number of offers to 14.
Byrd, who runs the forty in 4.40 seconds, says he performed well at the Georgia camp. In May when asked if he was interested in Georgia, Byrd replied, "No doubt, Georgia is an in-state school."
Last season, despite missing three games due to an injury, he ran for 900 yards on 99 carries for 17 touchdowns. He also caught 14 passes for four scores. After the season Byrd earned All-City and All-Region honors for his exploits.
Next up for Byrd is a trip to Georgia State Tuesday.
