Saint Louis (Mo.) Christian Brothers college running back Tre Bryant received an offer from Minnesota late last week becoming one the Gophers first running back offers of the 2016 class. GopherDigest caught up with Bryant to learn more about his new Big Ten offer.



"Coach Kill is the one who offered me," Bryant said to GopherDigest. "They contacted my head coach a couple weeks ago and told him they were interested and I'd say a few of their coaches have been following me on social media for a couple months now. Coach Kill told me that he really liked my playing style and he likes the way I can be a versatile running back for their offense. He told me they were looking for a special running back that can bring a lot to the offense and special teams and that I fit that role for their program perfectly."

The Missouri running back has to do some more research on the Gophers.

"I don't know that much about Minnesota right now as I have to do my research," Bryant told GopherDigest. "I do know they're in the Big 10 and were pretty good last year. I also know they love to run the ball."

Bryant is certain that he'll get to the Twin Cities before the end of the summer.

"I have interest in Minnesota, but I'll have to do some more research and talk to the coaches some more. I'm also going to try and definitely get up there soon, I don't know when yet though. After that, I'll know then where Minnesota truly stands. I would say there's a 100% chance I visit the Gophers before I decide at this point, but I don't have any more visits set up anywhere right now."
