"I have a visit set to Southern Cal and Ole Miss (1/20), and I am trying to get one set up with Oklahoma and Ohio State," added Kevin Bryant.
The USC visit
is not set in stone but it is looking like it will be this weekend.
am not sure, coach said he will get it done when school starts back. But next
weekend is when I am thinking it will be."
It comes as no surprise
that the two schools he has set up visits with are the two that are coming after
him the hardest.
"Ole Miss and Southern Cal call me regularly. TMac
(USC) keeps in touch. Coach Kehoe (Ole Miss) calls me all the time and keeps me
up to date. It is just the frequency of their phone calls that sets them apart
from the rest of the schools."
Which colleges have been by Bryant's
house to see him?
"Coach Cristobal from FIU came by."
"Coach Kehoe came and the offensive line coach from
Georgia came. I am going to take a visit with Georgia too. I do not know if it
is set up, but my coach is getting that done."
What stands out about
"I am not sure I can answer that question because I have
not visited them yet.; I am just waiting for the visit so I can see how the school
is. But what got me interested in them is Coach Kehoe. He was the OL coach at
Miami, and I use to go down to their Down and Dirty camps for years. We got pretty
close when he was at Miami. I even brought back one of his video tapes on pass
blocking techniques. He is a great teacher. When he left Miami and went to Ole
Miss; I scratched Miami off of my list and added Ole Miss."
What are the Dawgs positives?
whole family is from Georgia. If I go to Georgia, I will be in close proximity
for them to see me play. Georgia is like a personal visit."
were one of the first schools to offer me. I have a close friend, Daven Joseph,
who played offensive guard for them and he now plays for the Tampa Bay Bucks.
He went to the same high school as me. We are pretty similar. We are both real
tall but play offensive guard. Their facilities are nice at Oklahoma. It is a
nice fit. I like their OL coach too."
And Ohio State?
head coach came and saw me. They have really picked up their recruitment with
me. I want to see how the school is. I would be interested to see what they have.
I have no background information on them, just a dream of mine to play for a school
What about Southern Cal?
"I have been taling
with Coach TMac since last year. He explained they are short on OL and there is
a high possibility of playing early if I go there. I just want to see how I fit
in. I want to see what all the schools are like. I am reading all I can on them
(GA, OM, USC, OSU, OKL) on the internet. I want to put in a personal experience
which each one and see how I like it. Which ever one I trust the most, I will
Kevin's grades were a major issue early on his recruitment
but he looks to have shored up that problem.
"I had a 1.8 GPA before
the year started, but I have pulled it up to a 2.2 GPA. But I am enrolled in a
program now in Broward County where I can take all of my core courses that I did
bad in over again. I am going to night school right now. At the end of the semester,
my GPA should be at a 2.7. A lot of athletes from around here have enrolled in
this program the last few years and there has been a high success ratio. I have
really dedicated myself to get myself eligible. Right now, I am concentrating
on my SAT. I have a 600, and I need an 850 with where my GPA is right now, but
if I get it up to a 2.7, I will be fine."
The 6' 7", 350 pounder
was named 1st Team All-Broward and 1st Team All-State. He played in the Dade/Broward
All-State game last month.
"I am visiting Ole Miss on Jan. 19, but I don't have any real frontrunner yet, but I like Ole Miss,"…
