Ranked the #33 weakside defensive end in the nation by Rivals.com...listed as the #83 defensive end by Scout.com...named All-Region by PrepStar as a senior...part of a military family that moved around a lot during high school; started at Slidell in Louisiana, moved to Jamestown, Virginia then settled at Hoover High School for his senior season...helped Hoover High to the state championship game in 2006...twin brother Brandon is a wide receiver and fellow Clemson signee...wore number 9 for Hoover High...played just two years of high school football...three star prospect recruited by wide receivers coach Dabo Swinney...chose Clemson over Illinois, N.C. State, Northwestern, Stanford, Syracuse and UCLA.
Plyler on Clear: "A lot like the wide receiver position, defensive end is a big area of need for the Tigers. Byron is probably more highly thought of than his brother, Brandon, who also signed with the Tigers. When you beat UCLA on a prospect you have done something. He comes from a high level competition, good coaching, and a good family. He has good growth potential with a big frame that can add a lot of weight."
Reminds Plyler of: None come to mind
