Love Considering UNC Official Visit

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. --- Four-star prospect Bryce Love originally didn’t plan on using any of his five allotted official visits on in-state schools. As his recruitment winds down, he’s coming around to changing that thinking.

“I’m still considering [in-state official visits],” Love said. “I’ll probably have a few [official visits] left over so I’ll have the opportunity to use them.”

Love, a 5-foot-10, 173-pound running back from Wake Forest (N.C.), has only taken an official visit to Virginia Tech. But he has official trips scheduled with Stanford and Tennessee during the weekends of January 16 and 23, respectively.

“Hopefully, I’ll be able to make a decision sometime in January,” Love said.

Despite that goal, Love says he doesn’t have a leader and hasn’t narrowed his focus to a more limited list.

“I’m still considering all of them as of right now,” Love said.

In addition to the three aforementioned schools, Love is considering East Carolina, Florida, North Carolina, NC State, and Wisconsin.

Love says UNC is “still up there” in his mind. A week ago, he and his family had lunch with Larry Porter, the Tar Heels’ running backs coach.

“He just talked about the offense as a whole,” Love said.

Love also entertained in-home visits with Stanford and Tennessee.

The past couple of months, Love’s focus was Wake Forest’s season, which ended in a loss Saturday night in the NCHSAA 4AA Championship to Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek.

“It’s an outstanding team – really well-coached,” Love said. “I’m blessed to have the opportunity to come out and compete against them. It didn’t end the way we wanted it to, but it was still an outstanding year.”

Love competed against Mallard Creek despite suffering a shoulder injury a couple of weeks ago. He says the injury didn’t limit him. In fact, he had his season-high in carries. He finished with 186 yards and a touchdown on 28 rushes.
