Bryant Talks UW Unofficial, Future Plans

2016 Loyola (Los Angeles, Ca.) CB Myles Bryant took a trip to Montlake on Tuesday and he updated Dawgman.com about some highlights from the trip, how close he was to making a decision and when he could end the recruiting process...




"It was great. I had a really great time," Bryant said as he awaited his flight home at Sea Tac International Airport. "I brought my dad up with me and I think he loved the school even more than I did and I really loved it."

While on campus, Bryant got to meet with head coach Chris Petersen and defensive backs coach Jimmy Lake and he was also impressed with the support for the program from different segments of the student body.

"I think the biggest thing that stuck out to me was coach Petersen's 'Built For Life' program up there," Bryant noted. "He really cares about his players and he wants them to succeed, not just at football, but also in their lives after football or when they are away from football.

"I also got to sit down with coach Lake for a while and he brought out some highlights from last season and just showed me different things, how they run things, different responsibilities and stuff like that.

"He sees me in the same role as Budda Baker. Not necessarily at safety, but playing the nickel corner spot and I think that really fits my skill set pretty well.

"One other thing that was really impressive was the support that they get from everyone up there. I met with the basketball coaches and they really support the football program well. Everyone up there loves the program and they will do anything to help them succeed."

So with how well the visit went, did Bryant come close to making a decision?

"Not really," Bryant said. "It was a great visit, but I want to still check out some other schools and see what they have to offer.

"There might be a better fit out there for me and I want to visit at least Colorado before the start of my season and then I'd like to take at least a couple of my official visits and make my decision during my season.

"Washington is definitely going to get an official visit. They'd like me to visit after my season, so we'll have to look at that, but I definitely want to take at least a couple of my visits."

As a junior this past season, Bryant was a star on both sides of the ball, finishing second on the team with 22 receptions for 260 yards and three scores while racking up 34 tackles, five pass breakups and two interceptions.
