Bryant keeping team focused

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Regardless of the rocky start for Lufkin (Texas) High School, the state's most popular pick for the state title this year, top wide receiver Dez Bryant showed more than just talent on Friday. The State 7-on-7 Championship Tournament was definitely something taken very seriously by Bryant and his teammates.
Winning one of their three games on Friday, Bryant and his teammates didn't forsee there first day at the state tournament going this way. Nonetheless, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Rivals250 member was all about making sure his team focuses not just in 7-on-7 but beyond for his senior year.
"We have to get situated out here," Bryant said after Friday. "We just need to show up every game and be ready. We wanted that championship not just here but this season."
Bryant's recruitment definitely has taken off in the last few months. One of the state and nation's top receivers has plenty of scholarships to choose from.
This Friday, the talented prospect broke down what he's thinking in regards to favorites.
"Right now, it could be LSU," Bryant said about a leader. "I just like everything about them. It's different to me and I have a high interest in them. I also want to go to Oklahoma for a visit. I'm supposed to go to LSU on July 23 for their camp. I'll probably stop by the Texas A&M camp this weekend as well.
"Those are the trips I'm thinking about right now."
Bryant doesn't want to make a decision anytime soon. He'd like to make a public announcement at the end of the season at an all-star game.
Bryant is rated as the nation's No. 17 wide receiver and the No. 21 overall prospect in the state of Texas.
