Bryant Working on UNC Visit

Christian Bryant has tentatively scheduled an official visit to North Carolina.

He's looking at visiting the weekend of Dec. 18.

"That's the date we've talked about, but I really haven't confirmed that with them yet," Bryant said. "I was trying to see if I could do one sooner. But it probably will be on Dec. 18."

In landing the official trip, North Carolina would beat out 25-plus schools that had also extended a scholarship offer to Bryant, a 5-foot-10, 173-pound athlete from Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville.

"I've been talking to the [UNC] coaches lately and I've just been getting a real good vibe from them," Bryant said. "… I've seen that most of their DBs are upcoming seniors, so they're going to need some more secondary players in about a year."

Everett Withers, UNC's defensive coordinator, is recruiting Bryant for the Tar Heels. Bryant says they talk every other week.

"[We discuss] setting up my visit and talking about the upcoming games and how they're preparing," Bryant said.

A month ago, Bryant took his first official visit – Michigan State - when it hosted Iowa.

"It was a real good visit," Bryant said. "I liked everything up there and they showed me a lot of love. I haven't been on any other [official visits], so I'm interested to see what the differences are."

The weekend before his expected UNC official trip, Bryant is scheduled to officially visit Ohio State.

Bryant will likely take his remaining two allotted official trips. While he's not sure of the destinations, Tennessee and West Virginia are the lead candidates.

The five aforementioned schools are Bryant's "top favorites."

"[I like] just how the coaches interact with me when I talk to them and how they were talking to me and the things I took away from our conversations," Bryant said.

Bryant plans to make a verbal commitment in January.

"I'm looking for a good coach-player relationship, a winning mentality, and good academics," Bryant said.

All five of Bryant's favorites are recruiting him as a cornerback. During the course of a game for nationally-ranked Glenville, Bryant plays quarterback, wide receiver, safety, cornerback, punt returner, kick returner, kicker, and punter.

Glenville avenged an early season loss with a 31-13 playoff victory Saturday over archrival Cleveland (Ohio) St. Ignatius. Glenville will play Solon (Ohio) in the Division 1, Region 1 final this coming Saturday.
