DE Roderick Byers of Northwestern did not take a visit this past weekend. He plans to take one this coming weekend, to either USC or Oregon. And soon after the visit, he plans to make a commitment. But he's not planning to go public with the commitment right away.
Byers expects to meet Monday with USC recruiter Ellis Johnson and later in the week with his recruiter from Oregon. Clemson had been involved but he said he hasn't heard from the Tigers in a while, and with them getting a commitment from Jeoffrey Pagan, he believes they don't have room for him.
Byers said right now things are even between USC and Oregon, and the distance to Eugene is no factor with him. "I'm going to do what's in my best interest," he said. "I'm going to be homesick no matter where I go."
