It's not too often that a freshman in college can make an impact on the football field during his first year, but every now and then it happens. One of the top five players in New Jersey and four-star wideout Dorien Bryant from Swedesboro (N.J.) Kingsway Regional could be that kind of player for the right program. The lightning-fast 5-foot-10, 170-pound athlete has set up his first official visit.
"I wanted to get my first visit set up. I know for sure that I'll be setting up visits with Boston College and NC State as well, but I've set up a trip with Tennessee for Dec. 13. BC, Tennessee and NC State are my three favorites."
Dorien has more than 40 offers, but might only need to visit his top three before making a decision. He also mentioned that Michigan, Notre Dame, Purdue and Illinois are still possibilities for visits, but it might not come down to that.
"I might only need three visits to make my decision. I really like BC a lot and I might go up for the BC-Navy game on Oct. 19 for an unofficial. It's close enough for me to take a ride with my Mom and let her see everything before my official visit."
Dorien visited Boston College during the Spring and was very impressed with the coaches, players and the facilities. He also visited both Tennessee and NC State as well and was equally impressed.
"I'm trying not to let all of this get to me. I know what I like about each school so it's not that confusing. I'm pretty sure I know where I really want to go, but I just want to be positive about everything."
It looks like we will all have to wait until December or January for his decision, but for now three lucky schools continue to lead the way.
