C.J. Byrd - Wide Receiver Copy Embed Code
Height: 6-3   Weight: 185   Hometown: North Augusta, SC (North Augusta HS)   Class: 2005

CJ Byrd is the consensus number one player in South Carolina this year. Byrd has been battling back from an ankle injury, but that has not deterred any schools from still calling.

"We played two games this past week. Monday night my ankle just didn't feel right. I was very limited in my action on Monday. Friday my ankle felt better, and I was able to play more comfortably.

Several schools still call me every week. Tennessee is the only outside my top five that I have a little interest. They are a nice school, but they still aren't in my top five."

On Friday night, Byrd went up against one of the top juniors in South Carolina, Spring Valley quarterback BJ Phillips. He also plays with another top junior, linebacker Marcus Jackson. Byrd had high praises for both players after the game.

"I could see him (Phillips) as a great college quarterback on down the line. He really only made one mistake the whole game. Marcus is a great player. I would think he would have as many offers as me. He will play linebacker in college. One day, I look forward to playing with him again or against him however it works out."

Byrd remains high on Clemson. Coach Swinney has now joined Coach West in recruiting Byrd.

"My conversations have gone really good with Clemson. Coach Swinney and I e-mail each other a lot. At the Georgia Tech game, I got to spend a lot of time with him. He was the first and the last person I saw. Reggie (Merriweather) and I spoke a little. Everyone was in game mode, so I basically just said hello to a lot of them."

Byrd still plans on taking all five official visits. The dates of his official visits have not been set.
