Akial Byers is a 6'4", 265 lb defensive tackle from Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Byers received his first offer from Iowa State back in early December and was also offered by Arkansas State later that month, according to 247 Sports. Byers drew more attention early in the New Year as Memphis offered in January and Alabama came with an offer just yesterday. Byers also reportedly holds offers from Mississippi State, and more recently, Ole Miss.

Surprisingly, Arkansas has not yet offered the Fayetteville native, but 247 Sports still has the Razorbacks as a heavy favorite to land Byers.

It appears that Byers is being recruited by Barry Odom and Andy Hill, his position coach would be Jackie Shipp.
