The 2016 quarterback was offered early in his sophomore year and he is now up to six scholarship offers.
He has started to take trips and he recently spent time at two schools on his offer list.
"Coach [David] Cutcliffe and Duke offering me was a big honor," said Byrd. "He has them playing very well and him having coached great quarterback has me very interested in Duke. I really loved it up there when I visited."
Not too far from Durham is Raleigh and that is where the other school is located.
"I really like the facilities at N.C. State and I had a good time there too. I wasn't able to see a practice the day I was there, but I had a good time. I got a little time with the coaches, but I want to get back up there for another visit. It is a nice place."
Both Duke and N.C. State had things that stood out to Byrd and he is still researching those schools.
A school he is a little more familiar with plays in the SEC. His father actually went to school there and Byrd spent time on that campus recently as well.
"My dad grew up in Maryville, Tenn. and then he went to the University of Tennessee," said Byrd. "I have been to games there before and I got to watch a scrimmage this time inside Neyland Stadium, so that was great. I met Joshua Dobbs (UT quarterback) at the Elite 11 tryout, so I got to talk to him on my visit, and that was cool. I do not have an offer yet, but Tennessee is showing interest."
The visits did not stop there.
An in-state school in Athens, Ga. was the last school to host the talented passer on their campus and he got to see how things work at UGA.
"I was shown around practice by Mark Richt's son (Jon Richt), so that was cool. I was able to sit in the meetings with the quarterbacks, watch the practice, and just see what they do there. I have been to Georgia before too and I like it up there."
Could Georgia be close to offering? How about Tennessee? Or what about a school he visited in Chapel Hill, N.C.?
"It is tough to tell who is close to offering," said Byrd. "Some schools on the west coast are showing a lot of interest, and then schools like Oklahoma, Notre Dame, and North Carolina are three schools that I know are very interested. It is just to tell though."
The Kathleen (Ga.) Veterans student-athlete welcomes all offers and he will hit the road again this summer for visits/camps after numerous coaches check on him this spring.
One school has jumped out to him early and he would like to get an offer from this school in the future.
"I would say North Carolina really stands out to me the most right now. I really like Coach [Larry] Fedora a lot, the coaches there are great, and that visit really stood out to me. I like the players, the practice, and the coaches. For me, they have stood out the most so far."
