Pinecrest (NC) offensive lineman Bryce Kennedy has seen his recruiting take off over the last three months and along the way, has become a major target for the NC State coaching staff.
In fact, Kennedy told Pack Pride this week that he recently took an unofficial visit to NC State and the trip went well. That helped the Wolfpack's chances.
"I got to hang out with some of the players and talk to some of the players. I just got a better understanding of what they're all about. I got to see the campus and that was important because I hadn't seen the campus before. It was my first time up there.
"I spent a lot of time with (freshman offensive lineman) Rob Crisp. He's the guy I hung out with mostly. We got along well."
Kennedy, a 6-3, 285-pound guard from Southern Pines (NC) Pinecrest, said he also spent a lot of time talking to the coaches.
"I got to talk to Coach (Jim) Bridge and Coach (Tom) O'Brien a lot," he said. "They were just talking about my position and what position I'd play. I saw a few plays they run and got to see how they do things, just stuff like that.
"The school was great. I thought it was great. Everything looks good. It's a great campus and a nice stadium. The coaches and the players are nice," he said.
Kennedy also visited Duke recently and he said that trip went well also. Academics are the main thing Duke has going for them. Of course, UNC remains a factor for Kennedy, as does South Carolina.
"I think I'm going to take some official visits," Kennedy continued. "I need to get out and see some more schools before I'm ready to make a decision. I don't know where I'm going for all of (the official visits) yet but I am going to Stanford, and probably (North) Carolina and South Carolina. I'll probably take all of them."
When asked when he might make a decision Kennedy responded, "I have no idea," which seems to indicate he will wait until much later this year or even into next year.
All of the schools Kennedy is still listening to are recruiting him as a guard and he told Pack Pride that they all have an equal shot at this point.
Kennedy also said that he hopes to redshirt his first year in college so he can spend some time preparing for the future.
