Rising junior RB Bryce Love (5-9 180) of Wake Forest, NC has compiled a list of early offers to include Clemson, Tennessee, North Carolina, Stanford, NC State, Duke, Arkansas, East Carolina and Virginia Tech with interest from USC and others.
Love is showing interest in the Tigers and Gamecocks. "I've heard nothing but good things (about Clemson) and I'm sure I will really like their facilities (when I visit)," he said. "Coach (Robbie) Caldwell came down here to talk to my coach and told him a couple of things. I feel like they really like me and they really want me."
Love is a little more familiar with USC having family that attended the university. "I've liked them, you know, because my parents went there, and I've been down to visit," he said. "They've got really nice facilities and the coaches were pretty cool. Coach (Steve) Spurrier, Jr. came down to talk to my coach and seems like a pretty cool guy."
Love has not left the state for any visits this summer but did get a chance to get over to Chapel Hill and Durham for visits. He is showing interest in the Blue Devils and Tar Heels. Speaking on both programs, Love said, "I like what they have going on there and I really like the locations. They're both really good programs." He would like to take several visits this football season but has not scheduled any to date. Stanford was one program he mentioned that he would like to see.
His father, Chris Love, did say that academics are a priority of Love who carries a 4.5 GPA into his junior year of high school. He does not have any favorites.
