Northwestern DL Roderick Byers (6-4 255) has added offers from Texas Tech and Maryland to his initial one from USC. Byers said Georgia Tech, North Carolina and Virginia Tech also are showing strong interest but have no offered. He feels Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech are close to doing so.
Byers attended USC's junior day last month and will go to Georgia Tech April 17th. He is also planning to attend spring practices at USC and North Carolina.
Byers said USC remains his favorite. He does not have a timetable for a decision.
