Nebraska signee profile: Tre Bryant

A look at Nebraska running back commit Tre Bryant as we get closer to National Signing Day.


Position: RB

Height: 5-foot-9 / Weight: 195-pounds

High school: Christian Brothers College (MO) 

SENIOR HONORS: Class 6 Offensive Player of the Year and first-team all-state Missouri.

SENIOR STATS: 1,145 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns, averaging nearly 10.4 yards per carry. He also had two receiving touchdowns and returned a kickoff 98-yards.

THE LOWDOWN: After picking up an offer in late October, Bryant visited Nebraska in November shortly after decommitting from Kasnas State. The visit sealed the deal.

"They were just thanking me and I was thanking them as well, for giving me the opportunity to come to their program," said Bryant at the time.

Rumors circulated in early December when Gary Pinkel stepped down at Missouri the Tigers might be getting back into the equation. Bryant quickly went to social media to squash those rumors.

WHY NEBRASKA: "Talking with the coaches, I really feel that I fit in well with their offensive system," said Bryant. "The environment around the program is great. I got to interact with some of the players as well and they were really cool." 

WHO OFFERED HIM: Nebraska, Kansas, Kansas State, Northwestern, Missouri, Minnesota, Vanderbilt, Indiana, Syracuse and others. ANALYSIS: “First and foremost, he's a sensational tester. His testing numbers during the Nike SPARQ competition was amongst the top in the entire nation, and he'll compete in Nike's SPARQ Finals at The Opening. Those scores don't always translate to the field, but it shows the level of athleticism and natural gifts that Bryant possesses. The acceleration, burst, explosion, speed, and strength are all apart of his game.
