Ryan Switzer in wait-and-see mode

8/24/2012

Earlier this week, it seemed Ryan Switzer was determined to open up his recruitment.

Switzer had concerns about allegations of academic abuse at North Carolina. Now it seems the four-star athlete from Charleston (W.Va.) George Washington is being a tad more patient.

When asked if he might look around at other schools, Switzer stated via text message to ESPN: "Not unless they end up getting sanctioned. I'm committed."

That's a bit of departure from Switzer's stance earlier this week, when he said he planned to release some schools he would evaluate in light of the troubles in Chapel Hill. Switzer has declined to release those schools, which is likely to limit speculation concerning his future. He didn't return a text from ESPN asking what schools he might be interested in if North Carolina gets hit by the NCAA.

He'll certainly have options if he decides to pursue them. Switzer expressed strong interest in Florida State before he committed to North Carolina. He also was raised a West Virginia fan. His family often went to games when Switzer was growing up.
