What once was thought to be an early commitment for one of the country’s top wide receivers is now turning into an interesting recruiting battle that will likely be determined by official visits.
“Right now I’m leaning towards taking official visits before deciding,” said Swedesboro (N.J.) Kingsway Regional wide receiver Dorien Bryant. “I was originally going to decide before the season starts and I still might, but more likely I’ll take at least three official visits during my season.”
For Byrant, his longtime leader has been Boston College with teams like NC State, Tennessee, Michigan State and others in the mix.
“BC is still my leader, I really like it there a lot,” he said. “I’m going down south to see NC State and Tennessee in a couple of weeks and then I go to Michigan, Michigan State and Illinois in August. After that I think I’ll be going to BC, NC State and Tennessee for sure on official visits. If I need more after that it will be between Michigan, Michigan State, Illinois and Notre Dame.”
Bryant has offers from all of the schools he mentions plus around 20 others. The fastest player in New Jersey and possibly the east coast thinks he might be even faster this year.
“I just ran a 10.36 automatic at our junior nationals qualifying rounds in the 100 meters,” he said. “That’s like a 10.23 hand-timed.”
Dorien rushed for 1,200 yards on 111 carries and 18 touchdowns as a junior. He also had 35 catches for 500 yards and seven touchdowns. As a part-time player on defense, Dorien had four interceptions and eight pass breakups.
