2016 Loyola (Los Angeles, Ca.) CB Myles Bryant discusses his decision to walk-on with the Huskies

Over the past couple of days, we've been hearing about some of the walk-ons that Washington is currently set to bring in. On Wednesday, the Huskies got what could likely be the top walk-on of the bunch when Loyola (Los Angeles, Ca.) CB Myles Bryant called to tell the coaches he was going to join the Dawgs...

"I called coach (Jimmy) Lake and coach (Chris) Petersen to tell them I wanted to commit and they were really happy and excited," Bryant told Dawgman.com. "They are bringing me in the play corner, but I am also a return man and they said I could try that too, so I'll play both, but my primary position will be at corner."

Bryant was a hot prospect during the spring and summer, earning offers from Washington as well as Washington State, Colorado, San Jose State, San Diego State and he had several other programs very interested in what he could do, however, he waited too long to make a decision, so he became a victim of the numbers game.

"All of the spots filled up at the schools that offered me and the only real option I had, as far as a scholarship is concerned, was from Cal-Poly San Louis Obispo," Bryant said. "Washington was always my number one school and I really liked the program and the coaches there, but when their spots filled up, I had a decision to make and I just felt like Washington was still a great situation for me even if it's just as a walk-on."

As a senior this past season, Bryant, who played on the opposite side from Michigan-signee David Long, posted 68 tackles, a sack. He also had 28 receptions for 406 yards and three touchdowns.

"I read routes and the quarterback really well and that helps me make plays on the ball," Bryant said. "I also don't back down from anyone, so I like to compete and I love the challenge of facing the guy across from me, no matter how much bigger he is than me."

Bryant has not taken his official visit to Washington yet, but said he plans to talk to the coaches about when he can come up to get the red carpet treatment.

We'll have Bryant in the near future as he finishes up the recruiting process and we will update news on him as it happens.
