Four-star RB Greg Bryant was given his U.S. Army All-American jersey Tuesday morning.
Bryant told a packed gymnasium of fellow students, teachers, coaches and family how thankful to was to have reached this level of success.
“First off I would like to thank God, my parents, my family, all my coaches that brought me love and support,” Bryant said. “Receiving this award does show that hard work and dedication does pay off.”
Bryant, who started on the varsity at American Heritage as only an eighth grader, was thankful for this opportunity presented before him.
“It means a lot because not too many people can go to it and it’s a great opportunity,” Bryant said. “I like the opportunity because I get to compete and go against some of the people they call the best.”
The 5-foot-10, 195-pound Bryant at one time was committed to Oklahoma before opening up his recruitment in at the end of July. Tuesday, following his jersey presentation, he named four schools that he is still considering.
“Right now Oklahoma, Auburn, South Carolina and Florida State,” he said were still in it. “I ain’t really set up no visits, but I know I’m going to visit Auburn and South Carolina right now. Both of them run the ball, both of them have a great atmosphere and it would just be good to go see what they got to offer.
The Sooners remain in the picture for Bryant, despite his decommitment from them just a couple months ago.
“They are trying to get me on a visit,” Bryant said of the Sooners. “I’ll probably go visit them too. They’re trying to get me up to see what it’s like because I forgot what it’s like up there since I haven’t been there in so long.
“I’m going to take my official to Oklahoma during the season, but after the season I’m going to take all the rest.”
While a decision from Bryant is off in the distance, likely national signing day, he has a grasp of what he is looking to see during his official visits.
“Just getting on the field and playing, treating me like family and just being a big part of their program.”
