Bryant Commits to Bulldogs
Brandon Bryant profile "I committed to Mississippi State this morning," said an excited Bryant. "I just got off of the phone with Coach Mullen. "Everything went real good. "He was telling me about what it takes to be a Bulldog and he wanted to know if I had what it takes. "I told him that I did. "I have wanted to play at Mississippi State since I was younger. It's been my dream school, so this is a dream offer." The long time Southern Miss commitment picked up an offer from Mississippi State on Friday just a week after area recruiter Coach Deshea Townsend watched the talented Bryant play in person. "When I saw Coach Townsend out there, I sort of nodded my head at him," explained Bryant. "I knew I wanted to show out and impress him. "I try to play my hardest every time I go out there and I wanted him to see that." No stranger to Mississippi State, Bryant camped with his Rosa Fort teammates this summer during the Bulldogs 7-on-7 tournament. "It was a great environment," said Bryant of the camp. "I had a great time and I got to talk to Coach Mullen and Coach Townsend. "They played me at wide receiver and some at safety and then they really started getting interested in me." Bryant is among the team leaders this fall in just about every statistical category for the Lions. The 6-0,185 pounder has rushed for 759 yards and nine touchdowns to go along with 14 receptions 221 yards and a pair of touchdown grabs. Bryant has recorded 29 personnel stops, five pass break ups and two interceptions from his defensive back post. Rosa Fort is ready to get the post season started this week. "The team we are playing (Shannon) is coming in as a the #4 seed and they got in this past Friday night," said Bryant. "I know they are happy to be in the playoffs and they're going to be ready to play. "We're going to be ready too. We're going to work hard in practice all week and get ready for the next step." With Bryant's commitment, Coach Dan Mullen and his staff hold nineteen verbal pledges towards the 2014 signing class. Thirteen of those nineteen commitments are products of Mississippi high school football programs. "I am excited about being a Bulldog," said Bryant. "They are recruiting me as an athlete, so I will play wherever they need me to play. "I am open to whatever position they need me to play. "This is all a dream come true for me." Bryant chose the Bulldogs over an offer from Southern Miss and strong interest from Auburn, Baylor, Ole Miss and Texas.
