As one of the fastest players in the entire nation, wide receiver Dorien Bryant has offers to plenty of top programs. He isn't close to making a decision, but one school sticks out a little bit.
"I think about Boston College a lot," said the 5-foot-10, 165-pound Bryant. "I don't really have a leader, or a team that I'm about to commit to or anything, but Boston College sticks out a little bit."
Bryant had all his visits planned out but there have since been some changes.
"I was going to go to NC State in January but I might wind up skipping that trip. It would be fun, but they aren't as high on my list as some schools so I should really narrow my focus rather than keep on adding new teams to my list.
"I'm going to Boston College this weekend(Dec. 6) and Tennessee (Dec. 13) and those two visits will have a bigger impact on me than pretty much anything else. It will be nearing the end of the whole recruiting thing and those two are probably my top two. I'll decide which of those two is really my 'favorite' after those visits. Right now they're about even, but since I know more about BC they stick out a little bit."
Bryant may wind up at receiver, running back, or even defensive back in college -- positions he has all played and excelled at in high school.
"Yeah, I feel like I could play any of them," laughed Bryant, who runs the 40-yard dash in an amazing 4.3 seconds. "I'm probably best at receiver because when I get in the open field no one can catch me. But my speed makes more things possible than that. At defensive back I have good closing speed and that really frustrates quarterbacks. I've spent a lot of time at running back and I've done well there too.
"I went to Penn State last weekend and had a really nice time. That running back is pretty good," he laughed again. "Their offense is more exciting than it has been in the past, so I can't count them out. I have Penn State set up for Jan. 17 if I need it. I went to Purdue earlier this month and enjoyed that as well.
"But right now I'd say Boston College and Tennessee are at the top with BC sticking out a little bit."
