Byrd Flying With No Leaders

As the top player at his position in the Atlantic Region, North Augusta (S.C.) safety C.J. Byrd is in the midst of a rapid camping tour of the Southeast. He has six down, and at least three more to go, but the number of favorites is still the same size as offers – 33 ...

"I haven't narrowed them down yet. I'm going to do it soon, though. I've been so busy with these one-day camps," says the 6-foot-3, 184 pounder. "I'm going to theGeorgia Tech, Alabama, and Florida State camps. I'm excited about trying to see all of them. I have already been to one-day camps at South Carolina, Clemson, Auburn, Tennessee, Florida, and Georgia."

Byrd, who comes from the very strong North Augusta program that puts out top division-one talent every year, has the talent and football knowledge to go anywhere he would like. He has two areas he wants to explore before trimming his list.

"First of all, the education. I want the major in finance, so I want to see who is really strong in that field. Second the program itself; I want to go to a place where I can help them win."

This summer will help Byrd take a step closer towards that decision, but he is not going to hold back once he knows where he wants to go.

"I don't know. It's a hard decision to make, so we'll see. Whenever I get to a decision, I'm going to come out with it and not wait."
