Only days after verbally commiting to the University of Louisville, 6-6, 205-pound DeAndre Bryant, a two-sport standout from Dunwoody, GA, changed his mind and is now expected to sign a national letter of intent this Wednesday with the Arkansas Razorbacks .

Bryant, a safety who recorded 41 tackles last season while playing in just five games, told Louisville coaches Wednesday that he intended to become a Cardinal.

Dunwoody High coach James Teter confirmed Bryant's commitment to Louisville Thursday morning, telling Inside The Ville, "It's a done deal. Coach Petrino and Coach Summers were down here yesterday and DeAndre told me this morning that he's sure he's going to Louisville."

However, a meeting with Razorback coach Houston Nutt last week convinced Bryant that Arkansas was the place for him. According to a story that appeared in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette's Sunday edition, Bryant informed Nutt Saturday of his change of plan.

"I'm going to sign with Arkansas on Wednesday," Bryant told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. "I just liked everything about it. The coaches, facilities and players are all the best. Michael Coe was my host, and we talked about how good Arkansas' team will be next fall."
