2017 Eastside Catholic (Sammamish, Wa.) ATH Hunter Bryant has continues to take a slow and steady approach to the recruiting process

While new offers and interest have continued to present themselves, 2017 Eastside Catholic (Sammamish, Wa.) ATH Hunter Bryant isn't in a hurry to make a decision and he'll hit the road in the coming weeks to check out some of his top suitors...

"My latest offer is from Oklahoma State," Bryant told Dawgman.com. "I have offers from Washington, Washington State, Arizona, Nebraska and Oregon State, so I have six total offers right now and I've been talking a little bit with Cal and Oregon has been showing me some interest as well, but so far, they haven't offered yet."

Two other programs that have been after Bryant of late are UCLA and USC, two programs who could move up his list of favorites, should they decide to offer.

"Coach (Marques) Tuiasosopo has been the one recruiting me and we talked last week for a little while," Bryant said. "With USC, they've talked to me too, but not too much so far. It was mainly them talking to me a couple of weeks ago.

"I grew up watching USC dominate things with Reggie Bush and Pete Carroll down there and they were just the school I always rooted for when I was a kid."

With his strong family ties to the University of Washington, Bryant also has a special place in his heart for the Huskies as well.

"My parents love coach (Chris) Petersen and the school there," Bryant said. "I really like coach Petersen and coach (Jordan) Paopao a lot and I have formed a really strong relationship with them."

With his six offers in tow, Bryant will start to hit the recruiting trail in the spring and he hopes to visit all of the schools that have offered so far.

"Next weekend, I'm heading to Oregon State for their Junior Day," Bryant said. "I'm looking forward to getting down there to meet with the coaches and to see their facilities.

"I'm also planning to go over to see Washington State the last week of March, but I don't have an exact date yet.

"I know I want to get over and check out Washington at some point too, but since I'm pretty close, we can just figure out a day that I can make it over and then I can go and meet with the coaches."

Bryant does not plan to take part in any camps this spring or summer, planning to just attend 7v7 events with his FSP teammates.

"I think I'm just going to train and work out with my (high school) team and also do some 7-on-7 stuff with my (FSP teammates)," Bryant noted. "I went to camps last summer, so I have had that experience already, so I think I'll just focus on my senior season and getting ready for that with my team."

Bryant will be in Las Vegas this weekend with FSP for the Pylon 7v7 tournament and we'll have more on him as he continues to work his way through the recruiting process.
