Myles Bryant Will Visit UCLA After Season

Sep. 25 -- The Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola three-star cornerback, Myles Bryant, has locked in his first official visit and UCLA will get one after the season...

Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola defensive back Myles Bryant (5-9, 170) has locked in his first official visit, to a Pac-12 school.

"I set one for Colorado on October 17th when they play Arizona," said Bryant.

Bryant will take two more official visits when the season concludes, to Washington and to UCLA.

"I'm going to visit Washington after the season and I'll visit UCLA, but I've been up there a bunch of times unofficially," said Bryant.

Bryant has been to two UCLA games already this season, for their wins over Virginia and BYU.

"I think that UCLA is definitely the team to beat in the Pac-12 South," said Bryant.

Demetrice Martin, like Bryant, a Pasadena native, is the UCLA coach recruiting Bryant, but he occasionally hears from running backs coach Kennedy Polamalu, who coached him as a sophomore at Loyola.

"Coach Meat is who offered me," said Bryant.  "He's the main one recruiting me.  Coach Polamalu, he leaves it all to Coach Meat, but he still talks to me.  Coach (Eric) Yarber also likes me for the slot, so I talk to him once a month."

Bryant is plenty familiar with UCLA and the Rose Bowl.

"I feel like I've been to the campus enough," said Bryant.  "I know the coaches well and the school pretty well.  And I live about five minutes from the Rose Bowl so my parents could walk to the games."

Washington has long been a contender for Bryant, with two offensive lineman for the Huskies former Cubs, including his former teammate John Turner.

"Coleman Shelton was at Loyola when I was a freshman and I played with John as a sophomore," said Bryant.  "Washington was my second Pac-12 offer.  I worked out at their camp at Cal Lutheran.  They really use a lot of similar techniques we use at Loyola so I'm very comfortable there."

Bryant visited Washington during the summer and he's grown fond of the coaching staff.  

"When I visited Washington, I loved it a lot," said Bryant.  "Coach (Jimmie) Lake is recruiting me and I talk to Coach (Chris) Petersen pretty often."

Colorado has the only scheduled visit and it will be a return trip for Bryant, who also visited Boulder in the summer.

"Coach (Charles) Clark is recruiting me at Colorado," said Bryant.  "I visited in the summer and I loved it.  It was a very different atmosphere than I'm used to in Los Angeles.  I got to see the new facilities and got to sit down and talk with the coaches and talk about where they see me."

He also got a chance to talk with head coach Mike MacIntyre, who he's a fan of.

"I like Coach Mac a lot," said Bryant.  "I like his attitude and he's really looking forward to rebuilding the program and they want me to be a big part of it."

Bryant intends to do regular graduation in the spring of 2016, so he's not in a rush to make a decision, but has a time frame in mind.

"As of now, I want to decide after the season, about a week or two after the season," said Bryant.

So does the three-star have a leader?

"All three are recruiting me just as hard as one another," said Bryant.  "I'm still pretty open between those three."

This weekend, Bryant and Loyola will take on Gardena (Calif.) Serra in the FSN Prime Ticket Game of the Week at 7:30 p.m.
