Greg Bryant
Running Back
5’11” • 197
American Heritage School Boca-Delray
Delray Beach, Fla.

Greg Bryant is one of the highest-ranked recruits in this year’s class, and fills almost all of the criteria for an elite young back.
The 5-foot-11-inch, 197-pound Bryant has an ideal body for the grind of college football and makes full use of it. He can pound through arm tackles inside and has the vision to turn two-yard gains into first downs.
And while Bryant is comfortable running inside, he should not be pigeonholed as a power runner. With a combination of vision and moves, Bryant is elusive enough to evade linebackers and fast enough to break open big plays when he reaches the second level.
With the graduation of seniors Cierre Wood and Theo Riddick, the well-rounded Bryant could challenge George Atkinson III and Amir Carlisle for carries this fall.
