Rockingham (N.C.) Richmond County is traditionally one of the most talent-laden teams in the region, and this year their top player is athlete Jamar Bryant. Bryant's offer list is growing, but is he nearing a decision?
The 6-foot-3, 195-pound athlete runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds and has great potential at a number of positions. He's a high school quarterback, but could end up at receiver or defensive back at the next level.
"I'm playing quarterback right now, but I'm not sure that's where I'm going to play in college. I do a good job of running the type of offense we have at this level, but I might have more potential at other positions in college. I'm becoming more polished as a quarterback, and I've shown clear improvement there. Who knows what will happen when I get to college. I'm just glad things are working out for me now."
Does Bryant have any leaders?
"I'm keeping my options open," said Bryant. "I don't think I'm ready to narrow things down. I have offers from North Carolina, Tennessee, Michigan, Georgia, Nebraska, Virginia, Duke and East Carolina right now, and some others will probably offer before long. I'm considering everyone that has shown interest and offered. My decision won't come any time in the very near future, unless someone distances themselves from the other schools."
Bryant has not scheduled any official visits yet, but he may take some trips before making his decision. As a junior he had 1,122 yards of total offense. He has averaged 12 wins per season in his two years as the starter for Richmond County.
