Christian Bryant headed into this weekend's official visit to North Carolina favoring Ohio State.…
Checking That List Twice
Christian Bryant, the 5-foot-10, 175-pound four-star cornerback from Glenville High School in Cleveland, Ohio, will be making his final announcement at a press conference at his high school on Jan. 26. As previously reported, he will decide between Ohio State and North Carolina. "These are the final two," Bryant said. "They each had what I was looking for and are what I want in a school. Right now I can't choose. I don't even know. It's 50/50." So how is Bryant going to decide between the Buckeyes and Tar Heels? "My parents and I are working on a pros/cons list and both are really close right now. I'm gonna pray on it and just hope that Gods leads the way for me. I'll try to see what I feel in my heart." Bryant, ranked as the No. 8 cornerback in the country by Scout.com, just visited North Carolina on Jan. 15. "It was a great visit," he said. "I liked it a lot. I love all the people there and the coaches were really impressive. They seemed like they keep it real." He says he also likes the Tar Heels defense. "They run a good scheme," he said. "The defensive coordinator (Everett Withers) is very good and I like how he develops players. I like how they let their backs make plays and they said they love how physical I am." Besides the program itself, Bryant says he liked the location and weather of North Carolina. "The weather was real nice," he said. "It's winter and in Ohio, I'm not used to nice weather in January. "It's also a real beautiful campus," he said. "It's not too big. It's easy to get around and you can walk everywhere." North Carolina head coach Butch Davis is expected to visit Bryant at home on Sunday, Jan. 24. He is also expecting an in-home visit from Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel on Monday, Jan. 25. "Ohio State has it all," he said about the Buckeyes. "I love the defense and just thinking about their tradition and the chance to play there is amazing. They're always in the big bowl games and never have a down year." Bryant visited the Buckeyes officially on Dec. 12. He also visited Michigan State on Oct. 24, but is no longer considering the Spartans. Bryant reports a 3.3 core GPA and 16 ACT, which he plans to retake in April.
