Bryant Back From UM Visit

Miami (Fla.) Killian standout cornerback J.R. Bryant has been wavering between Miami and Florida State in recent weeks and now his decision appears to be more difficult than ever. "It's really neck and neck right now," Bryant said.

"It's an inner-state battle, baby. I might go to UM, I might go to FSU. I just need some more time to think it all over. Florida's out. I don't wanna go there. I might take another visit to either Bethune (Cookman) or Rutgers just to go but I dont know yet."

Bryant, 6-0 and 165 pounds, returned from his UM visit earlier this afternoon.

"It was tight," he said. "I was chillin with (Travarous) Bain and also with Willie Williams, Bobby (Washington), and big Dane (Guthrie). They had other cats out there like DJ Williams' younger brother and Lavelle Hawkins. It was fun."

The talented defensive back said he had a chance to meet with new UM coach Tim Walton during the visit.

"He's real cool people," he said. "He was meeting with me, going over some new techniques and stuff like that. Everyone seems to like him. I did."

Bryant said he enjoyed the trip to the Orange Bowl on Friday.

"They introduced our names as we got to run through the smoke onto the field like the players do before the game," he said.

Bryant will make a final decision in the next couple weeks.

"It's hard to say right now," he said. "It'll be either Miami or Florida State but I just need some time to think it over."
