Bryant Looking Forward to UNC Visit

SAN ANTONIO --- Amid his official visit schedule, Christian Bryant has begun to give some order to his favorites list.

"Right now, I really would said that it is Ohio State first, then Michigan State and UNC," Bryant said. "[With Ohio State] it's just the overall environment of the place and I like the coaches. But North Carolina could bring stuff to the table on the 15th [of January] that I've never seen before. So I'm really looking forward to that visit."

Bryant's Jan. 15 official trip will be his first visit to UNC. The 5-foot-10, 173-pound cornerback from Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville has already officially visited Michigan State and Ohio State.

Additionally, Bryant is considering officially visiting either Miami or Virginia during the weekend of Jan. 22.

On Jan. 26, Bryant plans to announce his collegiate decision.

"[The 26th of January] is right after my last visit," Bryant said. "At that point, I feel like I'll have all the information I'll need to make a decision."

Bryant says he hears weekly from UNC and typically speaks to most of the members of the coaching staff.

"They are just saying I can come in and if I work hard I'll see the field," Bryant said. "That's really on me if I see the field or not."

Cornerback is one of UNC's final needs for the 2010 recruiting class.

"They said I was the first or second corner that they're recruiting right now," Bryant said. "I'll find out more about that when I get down there."

Bryant hopes to learn more about UNC's education and campus.

"My parents and I really want to sit down with the academic advisor to see how the academics are down there," Bryant said. "And then I want to see the whole campus. I'm really looking forward to that visit."

This week, Bryant is taking a break from his recruitment and preparing for Saturday's U.S. Army All-American Bowl. He will start at cornerback and return punts for the East squad.

"Right now, I'll be the first corner on the field," Bryant said. "But we're going to be rotating because we have four good corners."
