North Augusta’s CJ Byrd continues to look like the best prospect in South Carolina on Friday:
Byrd had 21 tackles and one interception in the 10-7 loss to South Aiken on Friday. Looking on at the game was an assistant from Florida State, which is one of Byrd’s five finalists along with Southern Cal, Georgia, Florida and Clemson.
Byrd, who was hindered early in the season with a high ankle sprain but has since recovered, left on Saturday morning for an official visit to Southern Cal.
“I felt great out there on the field,” Byrd said. “I don’t really keep up with individual stats, only if we won or lost. Unfortunately we played hard and came up short.”
North Augusta was eliminated from playoff contention in the loss and drops to 2-7 on the season.
