Greg Bryant (Delray Beach, Fla./American Heritage) is now officially back on the open market. This four-star running back had been committed to Oklahoma since the early spring. Over the summer he visited both South Carolina and Auburn. Last night word broke that he was no longer committed to the Sooners.

"My father spoke with the Oklahoma coaches," Bryant said. "They were pretty upset with my decision to de-commit. It's nothing against Oklahoma. They didn't do anything wrong. I mean nothing happened. I just want to play in the SEC. That's it."

Bryant, 5-foot-10 and 197-pounds, says right now it's either Auburn or South Carolina.

"Those are the two SEC schools that I know and the ones I have seen," Bryant said. "I will wait and see who comes at me. I want to see who I hear from. It looks like I will make my official visit to those two schools and then make a decision after the season."

Bryant is the No. 11 ranked running back in the nation. This is a kid that runs with a tremendous amount of power. He's one of many elite running backs from the Sunshine State.

"I have had a great off-season," Bryant said. "I have been working on my blocking and open field running. I want to become more elusive in space rather than just running people over."
