Local WR High on UM

Ever since Alphonso Bryant started playing football seven years ago, he's looked to create mismatches against opposing defensive backs.

"I've always had the speed and now I have the size to go with it," Bryant said. "I feel like I'm more physical than most receivers and that gives a lot of DB's some problems."

Alphonso Bryant, 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds, will enter the spring as one of the top wide receiver prospects in South Florida. The Homestead High standout finished his junior season with 14 receptions for 182 yards. Ever since, he's been busy in the weight room.

"I played basketball but now I'm hitting the weights hard," he said. "I wanna get bigger, stronger, and faster for my senior season."

Bryant, who plans to attend the Scout.com Combine in Boca Raton on May 13, is getting lots of interest from college coaches.

"I don't have any offers in writing yet but some schools have talked about it," he said. "South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida have talked about it. I'm sure I'll get some in writing later this spring."

Bryant, who plans on attending UM's Junior Day event this Saturday, named an early top four.

"I like UM, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida," he said. "They're all good programs. They're all even right now until I figure out more about each one of them. I like Miami a lot, though. They always have a good team and they're needing some wide receiver depth right now."
