Bryce Givens, from Denver (Colo.) Mullen High School stands 6-7 and weighs 255-pounds. While he is still firm with his commitment to Nebraska at this time, he will take an official visit to the University of Florida as he watches how the coaching situation unfolds in Lincoln.
"I have heard from more than a few people that The Swamp is the best place to play in America," Givens said. "It is one of the loudest stadiums in the nation."
Givens has the perfect blend of size and speed to excel at the offensive tackle position at the next level.
"Most schools have been recruiting me to play the offensive tackle position, but I can play either guard or center," he said. "I actually grew up playing the center spot. All the coaches that I have talked to think I can come in and play at the guard spot because I have such quick feet."
With the coaching situation uncertain in Lincoln, Givens mentions three that would be in the running for his services.
"I would definitely be looking at Florida, Texas and Colorado."
While he has never visited The Swamp, a visit could be in the near future.
"I am not sure when it will be but I will definitely make an official visit to The Swamp this year," Givens said. "I just love to compete and win. I have great tenacity and want to come out on top every time both mentally and physically. The best part about my game is my technique and foot work and the thing that I need to work on is my strength and I need to add a little bit of weight."
Mullen High School is sitting at 7-0 on the year in large part to the play of Givens. Mullen was supposed to be in a rebuilding year but looks like they will once again compete for the state championship. Givens benches 350-pounds, squats 450-pounds and has a 28-inch vertical jump. He also has a 3.5 GPA.
