DeAngelo Bryant Down To Two

South Carolina athlete DeAngelo Bryant has trimmed his list down to just two finalists for his services. Did Jim Grobe and his Wake Forest program make the cut?

Silver Bluff (SC) athlete DeAngelo Bryant is one of the top student-athletes in the south this year. Bryant, a four-year starter at Silver Bluff, has received several scholarship offers, qualified for college, and has proven that he is a winner during his time at Silver Bluff.

"Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech, and Wake Forest are the schools that have offered [DeAngelo] as far as D-1A schools go," his coach Al Lown told DeaconSports. "He's pretty much got it down to two schools, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest."

While Bryant has already visited Wake Forest, he has yet to take a trip to Vanderbilt. "He will go to Vanderbilt January 10th for an official visit," Lown said. "He came up on an open date in November to visit Wake."

Wake, Vandy, and Georgia Tech are amongst the teams that see great thing in Bryant, a likely safety at the next level. Meanwhile, Coach Lown has seen those qualities in Bryant for four years. "The number one thing is that he's a winner," Lown said. "He's started since his freshman year and we're 51-5 in that time. He does what it takes to win and is a very unselfish player."

"He's around 6-2, 215 with a 4.6 forty and is versatile. He can catch the ball, play defense, whatever. He's a great kid."

Bryant is not likely to make his college decision in the next week or so, Coach Lown noted. "I would say he'll probably wait until after the Shrine Bowl this next week and probably after he visits Vanderbilt in January."
