Byers cuts one from his list

DL Roderick Byers (6-4 262) of Northwestern has USC, Clemson, and Oregon as his top three schools now and says Georgia Tech is no longer a factor.

Byers spoke with Clemson assistant Jeff Scott today and will take an official visit to the Tigers campus on January 21st.

"I'm going to visit USC as well," he added.

Byers said he wants to take a visit to Oregon and will commit before National Signing Day.

He has offers from each school except for Clemson but that offer could come soon. Byers does not have a favorite and says these three schools are even.
