Elite schools after Bryant

Five-star Thomas Bryant is working hard at Huntington Prep and his recruitment continues to be busy.

Five-star forward Thomas Bryant is one of the most naturally gifted prospects in the 2015 class. At 6-foot-9 with big time athleticism, solid skill, and long arms, Bryant can do a variety of things on the floor. Now at Huntington (WV) Prep, his recruitment is continuing to pick up.

After spending his first two high school seasons in his native Rochester, New York, Bryant is now at Huntington Prep and he says it is great to be on the national stage.

"It is great to be here," said Bryant. "It is an honor to be here and I think I have been playing well. There are always things to improve on and that is my goal to get better every day."

Recruiting wise there is a long list of schools showing Bryant significant attention.

"I've been hearing from West Virginia, Kentucky, Kansas, Syracuse, Villanova, St. John's, Ohio State, UCLA, Florida, and Florida State," said Bryant.

Hearing from Kentucky is big for Bryant, and he says he likes what John Calipari is doing with the program.

"It feels good to hear from Kentucky," said Bryant. "It makes me think I am on the right track. I want to attract high college recruiters, and obviously Kentucky is one of the best programs in the country."

Since getting to Huntington Prep West Virginia boss Bob Huggins has really picked things up with Bryant, and is making an impression.

"They are a great program and I have been looking into them," Bryant explained. "Coach Huggins is a great coach and he has a great coaching staff with some good players already in the program."

Also Head Coach Bill Self has an excellent track record with post players at Kansas, and that is a situation that is intriguing to Bryant.

"I like Kansas a lot," said Bryant. "They have great players and Coach Self is one of the best coaches in the country."

For now the No. 13 player in the 2015 class says that he is taking his time in his recruitment and his focus is just on getting better.

"I just want to keep improving not only in basketball but in school as well," noted Bryant.
