Jamie Byrd knows a little something about the recruiting process. He went through it in high school and now as a junior college recruit he's going through it again.
He's just having a hard time making a decision and shutting things
Byrd committed to Arizona over the summer but he has stayed in
contact with NC State and several other schools.
"I'm going to NC State next weekend (November 30)," Byrd said. "It's
going to be an official. One of my buddies went there, Darrell Davis. It was a little while back probably about 2006 or 2007 I
think. I can't remember what year. I've liked them since high
school. I like the program and I've watched their program a lot."
But Byrd hasn't just been watching the Wolfpack play. He's been
getting to know the coaches on a personal level, especially
offensive line coach Mike Uremovich and safeties coach Clayton
"Right now I think it's a pretty good coaching staff. I love the
defense they run and I just need to go and get the all out
experience to see if I can try and get used to it."
Byrd has never been to the state of North Carolina before aside from
a recent flight that took him through Charlotte. But he has been in
South Carolina and believes he will enjoy the area.
He took his official visit to Arizona this past weekend and the
Wildcats will surely work to firm up his commitment. The only other
official visit he has taken to this point is to Georgia State more
than a week ago.
How solid is the Iowa Western CC cornerback, once a football player
at Texas Christian?
"It's a verbal you know, but I'm still open. I'll probably take
these visits and then I'll probably have one more after NC State to
USF but that's about it."
