"I loved playing quarterback," Bryant said. "It gave me a chance to make plays. Then I started playing all over the place. I've played receiver and cornerback mostly in high school."
Bryant, who had just one interception as a junior since teams rarely went his direction, has been a cornerback for the past two seasons.
After transferring this spring from Columbus to Killian, Bryant quickly became one of the state's premier cornerback prospects. At 6-feet and 161 pounds, Bryant ran a 4.53, jumped 31 inches, and ran a 4.09 shuttle at the NIKE Camp in Miami in April.
"A lot of coaches called the school and stopped by," he said. "That's when I really knew who was serious about me."
The coach who got Bryant most excited was UM's Mark Stoops.
"When he came by, I realized that they were really interested in me," he said. "I've always liked Miami and the way they play. I've thought a lot about playing for the Canes and I was happy to see them start recruiting me."
It wasn't long after that Bryant received a scholarship offer to play for the Hurricanes.
"They offered me earlier," he said. "I thought about it for awhile and after my boy Bobby Washington committed, I started thinking more about it. Then I went ahead and committed to Coach Coker."
Bryant said he will likely play cornerback for the Hurricanes.
"They have told me how they like how I play," he said. "They like guys that can cover and they think I'm one of them."
Bryant picked the Hurricanes over offers from Florida State, Florida, Michigan, Pittsburgh, and a few others.
