Ga. Tight End to Visit UNC

During the Evaluation Period, North Carolina found a diamond in the rough of Kennesaw (Ga.) Mountain – Bryce Ros.

"Two different coaches [from UNC] came down to the school to evaluate me," said Ros. "Then the offer came out of nowhere. I'm pretty excited, because UNC is a great school."

Ros, a 6-foot-4 220-pound tight end, has collected just under 20 scholarship offers with all of them coming during the Evaluation Period. Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, and South Carolina are some of the other schools found in his collection.

John Lovett and Steve Hagen visited Kennesaw Mountain High School.

Hagen, Ros' primary recruiter, followed up with a phone conversation.

"[Our conversation was] just about the tight end situation up there and how [Butch Davis] coached a bunch of great tight ends – he's coached down at Miami with Kellen Wislow, Jeremy Shockey, all those guys," said Ros. "Obviously, he's got a pretty good track record."

Ros has also spoken to Davis over the phone, during which Ros was invited to visit the campus.

"We do [have plans to visit UNC], but we're not exactly sure which weekend it would be," said Ros. "It probably would be within the next three weeks. We know I'm coming up there the week I'm going to Wake Forest."

This past weekend, Ros visited the schools in the Palmetto State – Clemson and South Carolina.

Ros will unofficially visit Georgia on Monday. He also plans to make trips to Alabama, Auburn, and Central Florida over the course of the next few months.

Amidst his campus tours, Ros is reluctant to name favorites.

"I've got to go to all my visits before I start to name favorites," said Ros. "Probably around the end of the summer I'll probably narrow it down to a five or four."

If possible, Ros hopes to make a verbal commitment shortly after naming his top five.

"I'm trying to [commit] before the end of the summer," said Ros. "But if I don't feel comfortable with my decision, then I'm going to look into it a little further and go to some games and take some official visits."

Ros said he is looking for a school with a winning tradition, good academics, and a good social life.

As a junior, Ros caught 8 passes for 175 yards and a touchdown. In addition to tight end, Ros started at defensive end and handled punting duties. Defensively, he recorded 65 tackles including ten sacks.
