Recruiting: The Wait For Bryant Continues

"I've talked to my coach and I'm going to wait and announce something next week," said Garden City (Kans.) Community College linebacker J.R. Bryant. Asked why the delay and Bryant gave a very good answer. "I don't have my mind made up yet where I want to go," said the 6-2, 230-pound Bryant, who visited Oklahoma State last weekend.

"It is still the same three schools (Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and Texas Tech). I just haven't been able to decide yet," Bryant said.

Bryant had said he would have a decision on Friday afternoon. But, obviously, coming to that decision is more difficult than Bryant thought it would be. Junior college players only have two years generally while high school prospects have four or five years to play, making it crucial and with no room for error that junior college players make the right choice.

This past season Bryant earned first team honors in the Jayhawk Conference and NJCAA Region 6 with 81 total tackles, 70 unassisted. He also had 9.5 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, 2 interceptions, 8 fumbles recoveries, and a blocked kick. Garden City finished the season with a 7-3 record and 5-2 in Jayhawk Conference play. Bryant is originally out of Wayne County High School in Georgia.

Bryant was friendly enough on the phone and said he hoped to have a decision sometime next week and he promised to give us a call when he came to a conclusion with his recruiting. Bryant is a very good communicator and has been a lot of fun to deal with in recruiting. You like those athletes that are relaxed and handle it in the right perspective.

We'll just wait and see what Bryant decides.
