NC Speedster Pulls The Trigger

Virginia's impressive showing on the field paid immediate dividends off the field as speedster Emmanuel Byers has pulled the trigger and decided to be a Cavalier.

"I committed to them yesterday," said Byers. "I just had a gut feeling about Virginia that I wanted to be there for the next 4 years. I liked it a lot at the game. The atmosphere was great; the crowd was great, and I just liked everything about it."

"I had an official visit scheduled for January 17th to Virginia, but I may move that up. I think that's the only official that I'm going to take. I think they're doing something really special at Virginia, and I want to be a part of it."

Byers is one of the fastest athletes in North Carolina this year. He will get a first shot at wide receiver, but he can also play corner and add a threat on special teams as well.
