No Leaders For Love

Wake Forest (NC) tailback Bryce Love is one of the fastest players in the state, and that speed makes him a threat to score every time he touches the football.

Wake Forest (NC) tailback Bryce Love is one of the fastest players in the state, and that speed makes him a threat to score every time he touches the football.

"It's a great equalizer," said Love, laughing. "I think you can really change a game with speed."

During his junior season, Love averaged nearly 11 yards per carry and rushed for 1,973 yards and 26 touchdowns to lead Wake Forest to a state title appearance where they were defeated by Mallard Creek.

Love admits he wasn't himself in the title game.

"I hurt my hamstring in the beginning of the playoffs," he said. "I tried to play through it, but it got kind of bad. It was still a good game, we tried our best. Mallard Creek was a great team."

Now Love, who is rated a four-star recruit by Scout.com, is starting to focus on his college recruitment.

Two programs he's considering are NC State and North Carolina.

"Coach Doeren has definitely made a lot of changes at State," Love said. "Coach Kitchings knows what he's talking about, and coach Canada, he runs the offense well. It's a really good program over there."

"I like coach Fedora's style," he said of North Carolina. "The family atmosphere with the commitments already... they know what they are doing over there. I expect the program to be on the rise."

Next up for Love is a trip to Stanford, which he will be taking in the near future.

Does he currently have a timeframe for making a decision?

"Probably towards the end of the summer or during the football season," he said. "I'm planning on being an early enrollee, but as of right now it's not definite."

Love maintains that he is wide open and doesn't have a leader.

"I'm still looking at everyone that has offered me."
