Northwestern DE Roderick Byers may be headed to the Great Northwest this weekend for an official visit instead of to USC.
Byers told his coach earlier this week he was going to visit USC along with teammate Gerald Dixon. He originally was going to visit USC last weekend but because he would be the only prospect on campus, he rescheduled the visit for this weekend. But, after Oregon showed serious interest in him, he scheduled an official visit with the Ducks for this weekend.
According to a source, Byers' coach only wants him to visit Oregon if he's seriously interested in going there. Byers is maintaining that he is seriously interested. With USC now up to 30 commitments, the source said Byers runs the risk of not having a scholarship available at USC if he doesn't visit Columbia this weekend.
At this point, Byers is hoping to visit Oregon this weekend and USC January 28th.
