Junior RB Bryce Love of Wake Forest, NC made his way to Athens over the weekend to take in the USC-Georgia game Saturday afternoon. He was accompanied by his father, Chris Love, who was a track and field athlete at USC.

Love's father said his son watched the game intently. "He wanted to see how USC utilized their running back, slot receivers and tight end," said Chris Love. "It didn't help that USC lost though."

Love is good friends with Georgia RB Keith Marshall and spent time with the Bulldogs coaches. "They're still showing some interest," said his father. "They haven't offered yet, but they're keeping an eye on him."

Love entertained the idea of visiting USC this weekend for the Vanderbilt game but a scheduling conflict will not allow it. He will, instead, be at the East Carolina-Virginia Tech game. He will be at NC State when Clemson comes to town as well. "We're going to get down to (USC) for a couple of games this year, but I'm not sure which ones yet," said Love's father.

Love has offers from USC, Clemson, Tennessee, North Carolina, Stanford, NC State, Duke, Arkansas, East Carolina and Virginia Tech. He did attend Clemson's win over Georgia in the opening weekend and enjoyed his time in Death Valley.

Through two games, Love has compiled 544 yards on just 27 carries and has two kickoff returns for touchdowns. "Those were the only two times anyone has kicked to him," his father added.
