Boca Raton RB Keith Byars II to play in Offense-Defense Bowl 

By Matt Porter

Boca Raton senior running back Keith Byars II has yet to commit to a college, but he knows where he’ll play right after the high school season ends.

Byars (5-10, 205, No. 30 on the Big Board) committed to play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, which will be played Dec. 31, 2011 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. 

Byars, who has rushed for 484 yards and seven touchdowns on 104 carries this season, has more than 12 BCS offers. He will decide after the season. 

“He is keeping an open mind,” his father, Keith Byars, wrote in a text message. “Illinois, Maryland, Purdue and Louisville are high on his list. But no favorite just yet.”
