Bryant's back on the market

Greg Bryant decided Monday night that he no longer wanted to be committed to Oklahoma. Find out why he opened back up, who he is looking at, and more here.

"I have been thinking about this for a while, so I decided Monday night to go ahead and de-commit from Oklahoma," Greg Bryant told Scout. "They are a great school and I still like them, but I really want to play football in the SEC."

Bryant is not completely ruling the Sooners out for him, but for now, three schools are high on his list.

"Auburn, South Carolina, and Georgia are the schools I am thinking about now. I have been in touch with Auburn and South Carolina all summer and I plan to call Georgia soon. Those are the main three schools for me now. I really want to play in the SEC, that is the best football, but if there was one school outside the SEC I would consider, it would be USC. I have talked to them recently too."

The 5-foot-10, 215 pound running back out of Delray Beach (Fla.) American Hertiage visited Auburn and South Carolina over the summer and he liked each campus.

"Auburn has an environment I could play in and do well in I think. I like their facilities too, but the main thing is how I fit in there. I think I could do well there.

"I like how South Carolina runs the ball a lot and how they have their go-to guy at running back. Marcus Lattimore is their guy now, but he will be gone soon, so they will need someone else to step in. I could be that guy."

The four-star back has not visited UGA since July 2011 when he got his offer from the Dawgs. He sees an opportunity there.

"I like how UGA runs the ball and how they are not afraid to play freshmen. Isaiah Crowell was the man there last year, but he got into trouble, so he is gone. If I go there, do the right thing, then I could be the man there too."

Bryant is not going to rush into a decision and he plans to wait and see what schools pursue him now that he is back on the market.

"I am not going to be in a hurry," he said, "I will talk to the schools I have interest in and see if any new ones try to talk to me now.

"I am really focused on the SEC right now, that is the type of football I want to play."

Scout has Bryant at the no. 11 running back in the country.
