Despite rumors and rampant speculation suggesting the linebacker may not make it to D-I, Byrd reiterated, "He's got a chance to graduate."
Asked about Chris Herring, Byrd said, "He enrolled in Ole Miss probably because it was the easiest thing for him. Since he initially signed with those guys, he didn't have to graduate in order to join them in the Spring."
And John Harris?
"He's probably going to the Canadian Football League."
