First reported by Rivals.com, Brandon Byrd verbally committed to Marshall’s football staff during a official visit this weekend.
Standing six-feet, 185 pounds, Byrd was a versatile offensive weapon at East Bay High School, Fla. The teams primary ball carrier, he rushed for 470 yards and nine touchdowns while also catching 11 passes for 191 and two scores during his senior season.
Marshall appears to be the only school that offered Byrd a scholarship although, that could have more to do with grades than anything else. Don’t be surprised if he comes into college as an academic non-qualifier.
