Interest Shifting For Cave

During the early parts of the college football season, North Carolina showed a strong interest in Ryan Cave, bringing in the big lineman for an unofficial visit. The visit had Cave leaning towards the Tar Heels. However, a recent decrease in communication and interest from the Tar Heels' coaching staff has forced Cave to look at other schools.

"I haven't talked to North Carolina [in a long time]," said Cave, who attended UNC's home opener against Wisconsin. "I think I'm pretty much done with North Carolina."

Cave, a 6-foot-4, 340-pound offensive guard from Beaufort (S.C.), is still looking at play collegiate ball in the ACC.

"I'm still talking with Duke, a lot," said Cave. "They haven't offered yet. We're just trying to figure out a date for an official visit, but nothing has been set yet."

Cave has, however, scheduled official visits with two smaller schools – Liberty on January 21st and Newberry on January 29th.

Additionally, Cave's performance during South Carolina's North-South All-Star game garnered new interest from schools like Wake Forest.

"I did well in that game and all week in the practice impressing everybody," said Cave. "It was a fun week. Since the game, Wake Forest has been talking to me. My coaches are still talking to them."

Although Cave's South squad lost 11-10, he ended the day with three pancake blocks. Cave had a total of 31 pancake blocks during his senior season despite missing a few games due to injury.
