2004 Update on Fred Davis and Jeff Byers

    I thought you guys might want a quick update on two recruits from last year that ended up at USC. Fall camp is about two weeks away and summer conditioning is nearly over. The one player who keeps getting singled out as an absolute monster is Jeff Byers. No one I've talked to has ever seen anyone work as hard as this kid. At the other end of the spectrum is none other than Fred Davis. The upperclassmen are totally dismayed at his lack of effort. One quote was " Its obvious that he hasn't put in any work". Pete's pissed. Enjoy !

    The Byers info doesn't surprise me at all - he seemed like a really great kid, a super athlete, and a very dedicated, disciplined, and talented player. Outside of Ginn, I thought that Byers was the only other "can't miss" prospect whom the Bucks were after last year. He'll probably be an All-American some day.

    I don't know much about Fred Davis as a player, but he did enrol early at USC, which indicates that he is (or was) pretty serious about his football future.

    I watched a couple of FD's games when he was a senior. He got shut down by mediocre Toledo HS football teams. I was impressed with him, I just thought with his size and speed he had a lot of upside.

    Schweiger looked pretty darned good in the Army all-star game. That kid had a motor that wouldn't quit, and he was constantly in the east backfield disrupting plays. USC also got a can't miss with Schweiger.

    Nice find, Buckskin!

    Even though he chose USC over OSU, I'll be rooting for Byers (except when we play the Trojans, of course). He's a quality kid, and really epitomizes the spirit of college football - hard work, team play, positive attitude, loyalty, dedication. I just wish he would've seen the light in Columbus.

    I will also be rooting for Jeff, just not his team :) Jeff handled the recruiting process perfectly. He took all 5 visits, played it close to the vest and choose the school that was best for him. He was a class act all the way. I remember the bucknuts radio he did when they asked him the probability of him being a buckeye and he said: I have narrowed it down to 5 schools and I am taking 5 official visits so I would say the chances are 20%. Not that that means much, but it is just so hard to dislike this kid, even though he choose U$C

    Byers is the one kid on the USC roster I will root for. I love the attitude and the comments that came from him throughout the recruiting process. IMO, his highlight film is the only one that rivals Jamario's from his sophomore season. He was very impressive.

    I was just wondering how Byers has been doing? I didn't see him on the All Pac 10 first or second team. I did see him at guard one game. Has he been hurt ? I was just thinking about him today. Thanks

    Byers missed the season because of complications from a hip surgery.

    pssssh. you soft pac-10ers. if he wanted to be able to handle surgery he should have gone to the Big 10 to become strong and powerful, or the SEC to become a quick healer.
