2016 Loyola (Los Angeles, Ca.) CB Myles Bryant is set to walk-on at Washington this summer and he told Dawgman.com he's ready to compete

Washington is building up a very nice walk-on program and one of the prizes from the 2016 crew is Loyola (Los Angeles, Ca.) CB Myles Bryant...


"I'm still planning to come up to Washington and enroll this summer," Bryant told Dawgman.com. "I'm set to enroll on June 25th with the rest of the freshmen.

"I'm very excited about the opportunity there. I can't wait to get up there and compete."

At this time last summer, Bryant had offers from several schools including Utah State, Colorado, San Jose State and Washington State, but as it got later into the 2016 recruiting cycle, his opportunities dried up and he was left with nowhere to sign when National Letter-of-Intent Day arrived in early February.

""I called coach (Jimmy) Lake and coach (Chris) Petersen to tell them I wanted to commit and they were really happy and excited," Bryant said back on February 3rd. "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."

Because he is a walk-on and nothing has been signed, Bryant is a prospect who could still sign with another school, but he said no coaches have called.

"I haven't talked to any schools that are interested in me other than Washington," Bryant noted. "Coach (Jimmy) Lake is the only coach I've been talking to and I haven't talked to him in about a month, but he's going to drop by (Loyola) this month, probably in the next week or so, and we're supposed to catch up then."

Bryant did not take part in track this spring, opting to work out and get ready for the start of his college football career.

"I've been doing workouts with David Long . We've been running and lifting for the past few weeks," Bryant said. "It's been good. I feel quicker, faster and stronger than I've ever felt. 

"I'm currently 5'9" and 177 pounds and I feel good about where I'm at now, but if I could add a few more pounds, that's probably what I am shooting for before I get up there."

As a senior last fall, Bryant finished with 68 tackles and a sack from his cornerback spot and he also had 28 receptions for 406 yards and three touchdowns on the offensive side of the ball while helping lead his team to a 9-3 record.
