Bryant in wait mode

Florida is looking for another top notch middle linebacker to go with the players already on campus in Gainesville.

One prospect that has the Gators attention is Jackson (Al.) High linebacker Gavin Bryant who camped at Florida on Saturday.

“It was a pretty good visit overall,” Bryant said. “I liked how the camp was set up even though I was a little late getting there. The campus tour was nice and I liked how everything was laid out on campus. The coaches were great too I spent most of my time with coach (Jeff) Choate and coach (D.J.) Durkin.”

For the 6-foot-2, 225-pound Bryant the opportunity to work out with a college linebacker coach was something he really enjoyed.

“I really liked working with coach Choate on Saturday,” Bryant said. “He was straight up with me about everything and was telling me what I was doing wrong and what I was doing right. He taught me a tackling drill that I can take back home with me and he gave me a few pointers on things I could do better on the field.”

After visiting the Gainesville campus Bryant now has a top 6 but is still waiting to hear back from the Gators coaching staff.

“My top 6 schools are Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Miami,” Bryant said. “Coach Durkin told me he would get back with me after camp about whether or not my offer was committable or not. I want to decide before my season though.”

For Bryant, he plans to visit Tennessee soon and if the coaching staff gives him the news he wants than he will visit Florida again this summer.
