Junior linebacker attends USC game

Junior LB Larenz Bryant (6-1 210) of Charlotte took in his first college football game Saturday. It was the USC-Clemson game in Columbia. The Charleston native enjoyed the atmosphere.

"It was pretty cool to see all the rituals," Bryant said. "Listening to the fans, the alma was pretty cool."

Bryant has offers from USC, Clemson, North Carolina, NC State, East Carolina and Illinois with interest coming from Notre Dame, Florida, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Nebraska, Penn State and Tennessee among others. Though he does not have any favorites, he does like Clemson and USC.

"I'm from South Carolina so I like them both," he said. "I grew up a Carolina fan and they have my major. They're one of the top schools in the country in Communications. One of the Clemson coaches ( Danny Pearman) came and saw me and he made a real good impression on me. I haven't seen their campus yet but I want to. Both schools are close to home."

As a junior, Bryant had 69 tackles and three interceptions for scores. He added 1300 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns on offense.

All schools are even for his services.
