Two still out front with Byers

DL Roderick Byers (6-4 262) of Northwestern continues to favor USC and Georgia Tech. He has already taken an official visit to Georgia Tech and will take one to USC in January.

Last week, coaches from USC, Georgia Tech and West Virginia visited him in Rock Hill. He expects Oregon later this week. Byers is also planning to take visits to Clemson and Oregon but says he may not wait until he has finished his visits to commit.

"I might commit but I will still take all of my visits," said Byers. He says he is not favoring one particular school. No time frame for a commitment is set.
