Bryson Nesbit has proven himself at the high school level. The standout tight end excelled at South Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, North Carolina, and he is ready for the challenges of Division I college football.

If Bryson ever has questions about the game, he could always ask his father. Jamar Nesbit, an offensive lineman, played for 11 seasons in the NFL and even won a Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints.

As for Bryson, the four-star prospect had many offers to weigh, but decided to play his college ball for the North Carolina Tar Heels in 2021.

In addition to the Tar Heels, tight end Bryson Nesbit received offers from Charlotte, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, LSU, Maryland, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Rutgers, South Carolina, UCLA, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia, among others. Auburn, Michigan, and Ohio State all expressed interest as well, but didn’t formally make an offer to the tight end.

Bryson’s dad played for the South Carolina Gamecocks, so there won’t be a father-son collegiate connection for the SEC team.

UNC football recruiting doesn’t cast as wide of a net as a program like Alabama or Clemson might, but they can still land solid talent. Head coach Mack Brown is looking to build upon a solid 2020 and continue to compete in the ACC.

In this tape, Nesbit’s athleticism is what jumps out at you. He has the hands of a wide receiver with the body of a tight end. As a junior, he totaled over 500 yards and provided great blocking on the offensive line.

Some scouts don’t have faith Nesbit will turn into a future NFL Draft pick, but that wouldn’t necessarily preclude him from making the league. If UNC tight ends coach John Lilly does a strong job, then Nesbit could turn into a big-time playmaker.
