Byrnes High School has a history of producing major college prospects. But the Rebels ran short of big time college talent for the 2011 and 2012 recruiting classes.
It appears the next major prospect coming out of the program will be junior WR Akia Booker (6-1 195). "He has great hands," said Byrnes offensive coordinator Bobby Bentley.
Booker has no offers at this point but he's getting interest from Clemson, USC, Georgia, Wake Forest and Tennessee.
He has been to Clemson and to Tennessee for games this season and he plans to be at Clemson Saturday for the North Carolina game.
