KNOXVILLE (WATE) – A last minute commit, Tyler Byrd flipped from gold and blue to orange and white.
One of the best cornerbacks in the nation, the four star recruit made a decision on his college choice Tuesday night. “It was a very tough decision to make,” Byrd told Inside Tennessee. “After being to Rocky Top and seeing it and being committed to Miami for a year now, it was a very tough decision.”
Byrd said he liked that Tennessee was closer to his family and friends. From Naples, Florida, the 5’11, 195 pound athlete is ranked as one of the top 10 cornerbacks in the South.
