The 6-foot-3 and 210-pound wide receiver from Boutte (La.) Hahnville has set up a visit to Nebraska for January 11, a source at his house confirmed, but Byrd was unavailable for comment.
Byrd could potentially address a huge need at Nebraska as Nebraska loses starting wide receivers Maurice Purify and Terrence Nunn as well as losing commitment D.J. Woods earlier this year. Byrd is a physical presence as a receiver.
Byrd finished with 50 catches for over 630 yards and 13 touchdowns this year. He also picked off three passes from his safety spot. Last year, Byrd logged 30 catches for 447 yards and eight touchdowns.
