Tyler Byrd’s official visit to Tennessee didn’t provide many answers to his recruitment, at least publicly.
“You will have an answer soon about everything,” the 6-foot, 194-pound receiver from Naples (Fla.) High School told SEC Country on Sunday after his official visit to Tennessee.
Byrd said he enjoyed the visited but when asked if anything specifically stood out, said “Nope.”
That must leave the Vols and Miami wondering. Byrd committed to the Hurricanes in February but has since explored other options, which is understandable considering Miami underwent a coaching change. Byrd said he’ll have a final decision on his college choice in a “day or so”. Byrd is close friends with Tennessee running back commitment Carlin Fils-Aime. If the Vols have a chance to land Byrd, Fils-Aime will be key.
When asked last week by SEC Country about his relationship with Fils-Aime, Byrd said, “It will affect it, but at the end of the day I have to go where it’s best for me.”
Fils-Aime has been committed to Tennessee since July. Byrd is the No. 10 cornerback in the country and the No. 15 prospect in Florida.
