Pahokee (FL) cornerback Jarvis Byrd committed to NC State after landing an offer from the Wolfpack…
O'Brien, Archer Visit Byrd
When Jarvis Byrd committed to NC State, he was flying under the recruiting radar. Byrd held offers from Troy, Ball State, Southern Miss, Arkansas State, Alabama State, Buffalo, Western Michigan, and Florida Atlantic before NC State jumped into the mix, but very few of the high-major programs had expressed major interest. This caught Byrd by surprise, as he is one of the top players at Pahokee (FL) High School, one of the best football programs in the state of Florida. After winning this year's state title, Pahokee has now won three-straight Class 2B state championships. "I know I can play because I play against good players all the time and I'm all over the field," said Byrd. "In all of our big games I go against the top receiver and play cornerback... I just played against Rantavious Wooten from Glade Central, he's going to Georgia. That's my job though when we play a big-time receiver... I get to cover him." High school games aren't the only time that Byrd is challenged...
