Byron Floyd

OL Byron Floyd (6-1 250) of Mentor, OH doubles as a long-snapper. It’s that particular skill that has grabbed Clemson’s attention. Floyd comes highly recommended by Rubio Long-Snapping and earned their highest rating this spring.

“Massive Long Snapper that can easily pass an eyeball test from a college coach. Body is thick and very powerful. His balance is solid and he is leaning back really well. HIs snaps speeds are at the college level right now, let alone in a year and a half. Locking down his release point and making sure he is following through with both hands will drastically increase his overall accuracy and push his RSI way up.” (Review by Rubio Long-Snapping)

Floyd displayed his skills at camps this summer, including Clemson, and the Tigers liked him enough to offer him a preferred walk-on opportunity. That’s an offer he is considering.

“I’ve been to Clemson 3 times,” Floyd said. “First time was at the elite junior day in March. That was an incredible experience. I went back for the spring game. It was awesome to get an idea of what a game day might be like. I got to go into the locker room after the spring game and listen to Coach Swinney. It was also an amazing experience. In June, I went to camp and snapped for them. I was fortunate enough to be asked to snap for Coach Swinney. That went well. I met Coach Swinney at both the junior day and camp. Coach Pearman and I chat weekly.”

“Clemson is obviously a great opportunity,” Floyd continued. “I really love it down there. Coach Pearman is really a great guy. There’s details that need to be worked out and I’m going take my time making the best decision for me.”

Floyd also visited Miami of Ohio and said the RedHawks also interest him. He also has an offer from Toledo.
