Status
Byrd has become one of Tennessee’s top priorities over the final few weeks of recruiting in the 2016 class. Credit two people for Byrd’s interest – tight ends coach Larry Scott, who recruited Byrd at Miami when he was there and RB commitment Carlin Fils-Aime, who Byrd is teammates with and lives with. Byrd and Fils-Aime are visiting on Jan. 29, with Tennessee looking to wrap up that pair on the days leading up to signing day.

 How He Fits

Byrd is an elite athlete who excelled even in the Army All-American Game – making several big plays in that game. He could reinforce an already strong group of cornerbacks committed in this class for Tennessee or could be another weapon at wide receiver.

He’s the type of player that you take and figure it out as you go. He has phenomenal athleticism and that’s something that can’t be taught.
