What's new with Martavis Bryant

To keep himself football ready, 2010 Clemson signee Martavis Bryant has been burning up tracks across the upstate all spring for T.L. Hanna High School (Anderson).

At the Region 1-4A meet, he finished second in the 100 and first in the 200, taking him one step closer to this weekend's state meet. But an important part of any high school senior's final days got in the way of track.

"I made it (to Upper State), but I didn't go. I had prom," Bryant said.

This spring, he reeled of personal bests in the 100 and 200.

"I ran a 10.4. And in the 200, I ran a 21.5," Bryant said.

The first player to commit and later sign with Clemson's 2010 class, Bryant finished in the Scout.com 2010 rankings as a four-star, No. 37 ranked wide receiver.

Though he's expected to compete for playing time at wide receiver this fall, Bryant is on standby for an important bit of information to ensure that he's wearing orange in Death Valley this fall.

"I'm waiting on my test scores to come back and I have to keep my grades up," he said. "I've taken both the SAT and ACT."

Bryant's also spent a lot of time this spring getting ready for game days at the next level.

"I'm training. We're working on speed and agility," he said.

When Bryant last spoke to CUTigers about T.L. Hanna teammate and fellow 2010 Clemson signee Jake Nicolopulos, he was noticeably shaken by the surprising stroke that Nicolopulos had one morning.

As Nicolopulos continues to recover, he and Bryant have been able to spend time with one another.

"It's been good," Bryant said. "I go hang out with him sometimes. We'll be talking about football and he'll ask me how everything has been going."
