DE Austin Bryant Profile
Thomasville, Ga. defensive end Austin Bryant came to Friday's All In Cookout was one of a handful of uncommitted prospects.
He left as a commitment to the Orange and White.
Sources confirmed to CUTigers.com the four-star prospected committed to the Tigers, continuing a recent trend of Clemson acquiring elite level in its 2015 recruiting class.
Bryant had a strong showing at The Opening last week in Oregon and has been back home working out with his teammates preparing for a big senior season before today.
He has played linebacker, stand-up rush end, and put his hand in the dirt on the high school level. Bryant will likely battle in the trenches as a weakside end on the next level.
Byrant told Scout recently, "Playing time is important to me, so that is something I am looking at with each school. I am also looking for the place that has that home-feel to it.
"Relationships are important too because I want to connect with the coaches. Academics would be the last thing for me. Those things will help me pick my school."
Scout ranks Bryant as the No. 26 defensive end in the country.
CUTigers reported earlier in the week that Clemson was in great shape with the four-star standout and that he could commit before the start of the season.
Bryant said as much as The Opening last week.
"I would say it is likely that I commit to one of those schools pretty soon."
Turns out "soon" was just a couple of days later.
