The Richmond County standout enjoyed the Shrine Bowl experience last week playing as a wide receiver for the North Carolina squad. "It was pretty fun. We got to meet some new people and do some different things."

Does the talented athlete have a leader with less than 40 days until national signing day? "Not yet. Georgia, North Carolina State and Clemson would be my favorites right now."

Bryant will visit Clemson the weekend of January 9th with his Richmond Country and Shrine Bowl teammate Dannell Ellerbe. The January official visit tour will also include stops at North Carolina State and Georgia.

The talented prospect plans to watch the Tigers play Tennessee next week in the Peach Bowl. "I will definitely be watching on Friday. I hope Clemson wins."

The 6-2, 185 pound speedster will be looking for early playing time next season. "I will be looking to see how early I get to play. I would prefer to play receiver." Bryant stated that Clemson, North Carolina State and North Carolina are all recruiting him as a wide out.

Is there a good chance that Bryant and Ellerbe will be a package deal for some fortunate college? "Actually there is a good chance, a real good chance," stated the prize recruit.

Don't expect an early commitment from the Rockingham star as he plans to wait until late January to make his decision. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding athlete from North Carolina, right up through signing day 2004.
