Greg Bryant looking at four SEC schools
By Corey Long
ESPN 150 running back Greg Bryant (Delray Beach, Fla./American Heritage) says Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and South Carolina are the four schools he's looking at, and he has no leader.
"Alabama just began talking to me a little bit recently," Bryant said. "None of the programs have jumped out front right now."
The 5-10, 195-pound senior had tough sledding Saturday in a ESPN-televised game against Cocoa. Bryant rushed for 111 yards on 24 carries but struggled to break off any big runs.
"I felt pretty good but they played us tough and there are definitely some things we need to work on," Bryant said. "We started slow last year and turned it on down the stretch so I am confident in my teammates."
Bryant isn't as confident in his future destination. He is also currently working through the process of taking some official visits.
"I haven't pinned down dates yet, but I know South Carolina and Auburn will get visits," Bryant added. "I am talking with the other programs and we'll work on something."
After Bryant's decommitment from Oklahoma, there were rumors that he would commit to Auburn soon after. Bryant said that was never the case. Shortly after it appeared that Auburn emerged as the leader, Georgia began to come on strong.
"I have been talking to coach [Bryan] McClendon for a while and he told me that there's an opportunity there for me to come in and earn some playing time," Bryant said. "Georgia is definitely up there."
Bryant parted ways with Oklahoma last month and said Saturday that the distance was a big factor in his decision.
