DL Roderick Byers (6-5 250) of Northwestern was at USC Saturday for junior day. He's been to USC several times and Saturday's visit was more of the same for him.
"I didn't learn too much new, but I had fun," he said. "I talked with coach Johnson and coach Lawing. Coach Johnson showed me the depth chart and where I could play and where they need me. He said I could battle for playing time as a freshman."
Byers said the Gamecocks are strong leaders right now but he won't make a final decision until early in his senior season. USC is his only offer right now but he's also hearing from Virginia Tech, Florida State, Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, NC State, Miami, Tennessee, Virginia and Duke.
