Vanderbilt Commitment Michael Bryant

Michael Bryant, a two-star offensive tackle from Lavergne, (Tenn.), announced his intentions in the spring to play college football for the Vanderbilt Commodores. Bryant has traveled to Nashville several during the summer, and he updates his recruitment with

"The summer has been going pretty good," Michael Bryant said. "I have been working out, running and getting ready for the upcoming season."

"I went up to Nashville a few times. I went to their football camp last month, and I have been a couple of times to see the campus. I haven't been able to go up there every week, but I try to go as much as I can."

Bryant talked of his time on campus in June working with his future coaching staff during Vanderbilt's camp.

"I got to work with coach [Robbie] Caldwell. He showed me a lot more technique than I knew before. He is a great coach," he said.

"I talked to coach [Bobby] Johnson and coach [Ted] Cain a little bit. I think they are real good coaches. There is a lot of great talent on the offensive and defensive line this year."

"They haven't told me where on the line I will play, but I am guessing tackle. Things change though."

The 6-6, 290-pound tackle talks about his strengths, work-out program and what he hopes to improve before the season.

"I have been working on my upper body strength. Basically my bench and arm curls. That's one of my weaker sides right now. I have been improving each week," Bryant said.

"My biggest strengths right now is my speed and how I react on the field."

Bryant is looking forward to his senior season and Vanderbilt's season as well.

"We have a lot of improvement due to the fact we lost our whole offensive line besides me. We have to find a quarterback who can throw and think under pressure. We need to improve on our defensive line as well," he said.

"I think Vanderbilt is going to be doing pretty good this season."

Bryant is a solid commitment to Vanderbilt and will not take any additional visits. Top Stories
