RECRUITING: Texas DT interested in OU

Richardson, Texas DT Trey Bryant lists his top seven and talks about his interest in Oklahoma.


Trey Bryant is a big cat that can really explode off the ball and he goes into his senior year regarded as one of the top defensive tackles in Texas. Bryant goes into his senior year a three-year starter at defensive tackle.

As a sophomore, Bryant came up with 40 tackles, one sack, one tackle-for-loss and one fumble recovery. Then last season Bryant came up with 54 total tackles, sevem quarterback pressures, seven sacks, one fumble caused and one fumble recovery.

"I like hitting people more than blocking people, and that is why I like playing on the defensive line," said Bryant. "I love to put the big hit on somebody and like to intimidate teams at the line of scrimmage. My size and quickness is a tremendous asset for me and my overall speed for my size is tough for teams to match-up with."

Bryant can bench 330 pounds, squats 530 and he has a 29-inch vertical jump. Before his junior year Bryant went to camps at SMU, TCU and Oklahoma State. This summer Bryant plans to attend the SMU, Baylor and Texas A&M camps.

At this point Bryant has been offered by SMU, Baylor and BYU, but many more schools are calling.

"My top seven would be Baylor, Texas A&M, SMU, BYU, Arkansas, Kansas State and LSU," said Bryant. "I am very interested in Oklahoma, but I haven't really talked to anybody yet. I have received mail from them, but I am waiting to hear from them to see how much they are interested."

Bryant has a good a friend going to BYU and a former member of his football team.
