NC St. signs RB!!! Raleigh- North Carolina St. is proud to announce that they've received a signed letter of intent by one of best runners in the nation. Daryl Byrd is a a well rounded runner from T.W. Andrews highschool in North Carolina. His Red Raiders were a powerhouse in the prep ranks and Byrd was a star. He rushed for 1,800 yards and 25 TD's in his senior season. He combines very good speed with remarkable moves and elusiveness. At 6'1" 208 pounds, Byrd is a power runner that will excel between the tackles or on the edge. He's not comfortable yet as a receiver but at just 17 years old, still has time to develop. NC St. isn't sure what their plans are for the young talented Byrd as they are hoping to retain starter Brandon Barnes and backup Mustafa Greene next season. Ranked in the top 150 of all highschool players, Byrd is the first big signing the Wolfpack staff has obtained. There is a lot of buzz in Raleigh because not only is the team ranked in the top 25 but they are proving they can bring in top talent.
