TCU steals 3-star Florida safety from Boise State

Jamie Byrd Highlights (via CoachBorders)

Tonight it was announced that Jamie Byrd of Dade City, FL has switched his commitment from the Boise State Broncos to the TCU Horned Frogs.  I don't know a lot about this kid but I trust Chris Petersen's evaluation of talent and if Byrd is good enough for him he is good enough for me.  Judging by the hits in his highlight reel I would say Byrd should be a perfect fit at strong safety in the 4-2-5.  It looks like distance was a major factor in the switch and with TCU's impending move to the Big East Byrd should be able to play a couple games in front of a hometown crowd when the Frogs play USF, because Dade City is just outside of Tampa.  This doesn't totally square TCU and Boise after the home game switcheroo but it's a start.
