DT Keith Bryant claims Penn State offer

8/15/2012

ESPN 150 defensive tackle Keith Bryant (Delray Beach, Fla./Atlantic Community) told ESPN he received his latest offer — from Penn State — last week and grabbed another from Nebraska on Aug. 1.

Bryant, a Miami (Fla.) commit, said he's still looking around and will not decide on his official visits until late September. His top-5 includes Miami (Fla.), Florida State, Purdue, South Carolina and Oklahoma.

"Penn State said they were going to offer me since the spring when they saw me ripping it up," he said. "But, Nebraska, I was surprised about Nebraska because I didn't hear from them for a month."

The Nittany Lions have kept in touch. Bryant said he hasn't received any handwritten letters, but he chatted Tuesday on the phone with defensive line coach Larry Johnson.

"He was telling me how bad they want me there and that they're making some big changes there," Bryant added. "So, I'm thinking about them. I'm thinking about them."

The 6-foot-2, 292-pound defensive tackle is ranked 14th at his position and 138th overall.
