DL Roderick Byers (6-4 262) of Northwestern is heading to Columbia for the showcase camp at USC this weekend. "I haven't been able to go any camps this summer because of a small foot injury," said Byers, "but I'll be at USC on Friday."
Byers says USC, Clemson, and Georgia Tech are his top three but two schools are showing more interest. "USC and Georgia Tech are recruiting me the hardest right now," he said. "Clemson is still in there though."
Byers is heading to FSU in late August and says he plans to narrow his list at the beginning of the upcoming season. "I want to make a decision soon so I need to start cutting my list," said Byers.
He has offers from USC, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Wake Forest, Texas Tech, and Oregon but wants more. "I'm hoping that will change after we play on ESPN," he joked. His high school will face South Pointe on August 28 at 4:00 on ESPNU.
He did not name a favorite.
