Michigan expressed interest on Monday in Chattahoochee quarterback Tim Byerly.
Chattahoochee coach Terry Crowder recently sent film of his state championship quarterback to Michigan and a few other schools, hoping it would garner some attention.
When Crowder followed up with a call to Michigan on Monday, he got some surprising news. “They really liked him on film. Michigan said they had another quarterback visiting this week who felt like would commit to them. But if that did not happen, then they are going to really look at Timmy.”
The 6-foot, 210-pound Byerly is one of the state’s most overlooked college football prospects. He helped lead Chattahoochee to this past season’s Class AAAA championship, completing 170 of 249 passes for 2,664 yards and 30 touchdowns. He also rushed for 1,506 yards.
“Timmy was the best quarterback I saw this year,” Crowder said. “I just don’t understand why more of the big boys aren’t looking at him because he can really help someone out at quarterback.”
Byerly has offers from Middle Tennessee State and Furman, while Mississippi State has also shown recent interest.
