LB Bryant adds offers, waits for Tide camp 

May, 10, 2013
JACKSON, Ala. -- The recruiting process might have started slow for Jackson High School linebacker Gavin Bryant, but it has not slowed down. This spring, he’s added offers from the likes of Florida, Miami, Mississippi State and Ole Miss, giving him close to 15 total, all in the last three months.

Still, there’s one school that stands alone at the top -- the University of Alabama.

Bryant added an offer from the Crimson Tide in February, but the staff wants to see him at camp in June before the offer becomes committable. UA assistant coach Lance Thompson came by recently and told him to be ready to compete.

“They told me they were going to need me to get in good condition,” Bryant said. “Coach [Nick] Saban doesn’t like to see folks running to the water cooler, slouched over and all, so he just told me to get in shape. I really want to play for Alabama, and I want to try to show up up there.”
