"I am visiting Ole Miss on Jan. 19, but I don't have any real frontrunner yet, but I like Ole Miss," said Florida offensive lineman Kevin Bryant. "I talked with my recruiter there, offensive line coach (Art) Kehoe. He said that the team is losing some offensive linemen this year. He would like to see me there..."

Kevin Bryant, Scout.com's four-star offensive tackle (6-6, 3.60, 5.2) from Anderson High School in Lauderdale Lakes, Fla., still favors Mississippi, but just slightly, over Oklahoma, Ohio State, USC and Georgia.

"I am visiting Ole Miss on Jan. 19, but I don't have any real frontrunner yet, but I like Ole Miss," Bryant said. "I talked with my recruiter there, offensive line coach (Art) Kehoe. He said that the team is losing some offensive linemen this year. He would like to see me there.

"I know Davin Joseph (Tampa Bay Buccaneer guard, Oklahoma alum) because he graduated from the high school I used to go to, Hallandale. He used to come by the school numerous times and we became friends, especially because he plays in the NFL. I've asked him things about Oklahoma and he seems to really like the school and the campus life but says I'll have to just see for myself.

"My parents are scheduling my visit with Ohio State," Bryant said. "I watched the bowl game between Ohio State and Florida. I witnessed how the game was coached. The team is like a close-knit family. The closeness of a team is important to such a winning program.

"I talk to my USC recruiter, 'T-Mac'," Bryant said. "I like their offensive team. I like how they run the ball. I think I'm going to visit them for sure, but that doesn't mean they have an advantage.

"My visit with Georgia is being taken care of by my parents," Bryant said. "I have friends and family in Georgia. It would be nice to play there."

Final team record: 9-2 (district champions)

Bryant reports a 2.2 core GPA and a 700 SAT - Jan. 27 retake. "I'm handling my grade situation. I'll be qualified."
