Prior to his junior season I sat down and had some lengthy discussions with 2011 Northwestern DE/DT Roderick Byers about the recruiting game. What stood out to me about Byers was the fact that he listened so intently and asked more than just the normal questions a sophomore thinks about. Nowadays though Byers has a lot of things to think about in general as he's got a handful of nice offers already in hand. His latest came on Thursday from an in-state school and he gave us the inside scoop first.
"Clemson just offered me," Byers said.
With an offer in hand now from the nearby Tigers just where do they stand for Byers?
A decision hasn't been set in stone yet as to when he might decide but he did offer up this statement.
"Probably February but if I know I've found that special school then it could be as early as 3 games into the season."
So with the addition of the offer from the Tigers on Thursday Byers offers list consists of Clemson, South Carolina, Wake Forest, Texas Tech, and Maryland. Byers also feels like he may be close to landing an offer from Georgia Tech in the very near future.
