UNC Visit Appears Likely for Bryant

Scout.com four-star prospect Kevin Bryant had always been interested in taking an official visit to North Carolina, but finding the time for the trip was the issue. Bryant just might have some space in his schedule for the Tar Heels this weekend.

"I'm not sure [where I'm going this weekend] – I think it's North Carolina," said Bryant. "I'm still working it out – I should know everything later in the week."

Bryant, 6-foot-6 380-pound offensive tackle from Lauderdale Lakes (Fla.) Anderson, was planning on taking an official visit to Louisville this coming weekend. He is now looking to make the trip to UL early next week.

Since the regime change at North Carolina, Bryant has fielded a steady line of communication from the new Tar Heel coaching staff.

"I've been talking to the offensive line coach [Sam Pittman] and the head coach [Butch Davis]," said Bryant. "They call me frequently. [We talk about] giving me an opportunity for me to come up and see the school."

Last weekend, Bryant was scheduled to take an official visit to Southern Cal, but a "family emergency" forced him to miss the trip. He doesn't foresee rescheduling the visit at this time.

Bryant did, however, make it to Oxford a couple of weekends back for his official visit with Ole Miss.

"It was good – it was real good," said Bryant. "I got a chance to spent time with the coaches. They explained to me the depth chart, how I could play early, and how the whole offensive line situation was going. I got a chance to see the facilities and talk to the academic support staff. I really enjoyed it."

Amid all the scheduling and taking of visits, Bryant lacks a leader. He plans to head into his UNC trip with a clean slate.

"I have positive feelings [towards UNC]," said Bryant. "I'm open-minded about the whole situation. I want to go up there and see if I can make an impact and see if I can fit in."

Bryant said he expects to announce his decision on Signing Day.
