Bryant Talks Visits, Speed

Ohio State brings in some of the top talent from Cleveland Glenville each year, and this season a name that fits that bill is Christian Bryant. The four-star cornerback prospect updated his list of top schools and discussed who is the flat-out fastest player on his team's roster.

Christian Bryant remains excited about holding a scholarship offer from the Buckeyes, but he is not planning on making a final decision anytime soon.

The four-star cornerback prospect from Cleveland Glenville has six schools he is considering taking official visits to before he picks a college destination: Ohio State Michigan State, Tennessee, North Carolina, Illinois and Virginia. Of those six, three are the most likely to land official visits.

"I'm planning on taking official visits to Ohio State, Michigan State and Tennessee for sure," he told "The other two, they might come out later in the recruiting process as far as seeing who offers me."

However, the recruiting process has not been a pressing concern for the 5-10, 175-pound athlete.

"I'm just focused on the season right now," he said. "I'm not worried about any recruiting. I'm just focused on my team."

During his team's 57-28 victory Sept. 11 against Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne, Bryant spent most of the game at quarterback. He responded by completing 4 of 5 passes for 51 yards and one touchdown and carrying the ball 10 times for 131 yards and another touchdown. Defensively, he also returned an interception 82 yards for a score.

"They planned for me to play some quarterback because they were seeing some weak points in the defense and felt a faster quarterback would do some more damage to them," he said.

Oh, and he also converted a 35-yard field goal for good measure.

"Christian stepped up at quarterback and he had a big job to do tonight," Glenville head coach Ted Ginn Sr. said after the game. "He had to play quarterback, he had to play safety, he had to do all the kicking. That's what the seniors do and the great players do. They do what they have to do for the team."

The Buckeyes are recruiting Bryant as a cornerback. ranks him as the No. 6 corner in the country and the No. 7 prospect in Ohio.

"I have no problem with it," he said. "Wherever they choose to put me, I'll play."

Although Glenville senior Latwan Anderson and junior Shane Wynn each were a part of their track team's 4x200 relay team that brought home a state title last year, Bryant said each of the three players brings a different element of speed to the field. Anderson also has an offer and Wynn is expecting one soon.

Asked who is the fastest Tarblooder, Bryant said, "It's hard man. I'd probably say Shane Wynn, then Latwan, then me, probably. Shane is quick and fast, Latwan has straight-on speed and I just have straight-on speed too."
