There was a reason why 247Sports listed Tennessee freshman wide receiver Tyler Byrd as a four-star recruit and the No. 15 overall prospect from the state of Florida.

This is that reason:

Byrd (5-foot-11, 200 pounds), who caught 36 passes for 641 yards and nine touchdowns as a two-way player his senior season in 2015, is one of five wideouts that Vols coach Butch Jones collected from the 2016 recruiting class.
