Love Looking At Seven

Wake Forest RB Bryce Love still has seven schools on his radar and talks about his recent visit to NC State.

Millbrook and Wake Forest are two of the premier teams in the Triangle area and they squared off last Friday evening in a cross-town showdown. The Cougars came out on top 35-10 led by sensational RB Bryce Love. Love finished with 125 yards on 14 carries including a 67-yard touchdown run on the first drive of the game. On that particular play he broke several tackles and showed some of the toughness and elusiveness that may have been missing in year's past. Love also had a beautiful 56 yard punt return that nearly resulted in another score.

The game against Millbrook is especially important to the Wake Forest players but Love in particular as he is close friends with several of their players. So did he get any extra satisfaction in beating a team loaded with players that he's familiar with?

"It's just a football game and we're all going to be brothers win, lose or draw. It was definitely a good game. It was a good showing against a good team. They're going to have a real good season."

Love added that he enjoyed the opportunity to face off against two of the state's top defenders in DE Kengera Daniel and LB/DE James Smith-Williams.

"It was definitely  a unique opportunity," said Love. "They're two of the best from this area for sure.It's definitely hard to down block on them so they're definitely going to have a big season."

As Love's game has improved in 2014 so has the interest from colleges that are working overtime for his commitment. One school that has consistently been there with Love has been NC State. He was at NC State a little over a week ago for the Pack's matchup with the defending national champs.

"It was really good. I liked what I saw. I really appreciated how they didn't back down at all. You know they stepped up to the challenge. They didn't listen to the hype because that's one of the best teams in the country. It shows how far coach Doeren has taken the program. With the youth on the team it's truly been amazing. I saw the State coaches out here tonight and it definitely means a lot."

In addition to the Wolfpack, Love says he still has a half dozen schools still under consideration.

"I would say the teams I'm still looking at are the ones I plan to take visits to- NC State, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Florida, Stanford, East Carolina and UNC."
