One of the nation’s elite defensive backs says he’s got a good idea about where he’s headed.
The big question is, when will everyone else know?
“I think I’m going to wait and let everybody know on signing day,” said four-star Miami (Fla.) Killian cornerback J.R. Bryant. “But I’m done with visits, I’m done with having coaches in and talking about it. I’m ready to get it over with. I’m pretty tired of it.”
A member of the Rivals100 Team and the No. 4 cornerback in the nation, Bryant (6-1, 170, 4.5) said he has Miami, Florida State and Florida at the top of his list.
He’s recently indicated that the Hurricanes and Seminoles were the main battle, so the Gators may be the longshot at this point.
Asked to break down the co-leaders, he offered the following:
“They’re both pretty much equal in terms of football and tradition and being a championship program,” he said. “It’s going to come down to where I felt the most comfortable, where I felt like I fit in best with the people. I can’t really say where that was, because that would tell you where I’m going, but that’s what made the difference.”
He did, however, say he thoroughly enjoyed last weekend’s official visit to Miami.
“I really enjoyed the coaches there, especially the new secondary coach from LSU (Tim Walton),” Bryant said. “I know he did some good things there, and he seems like a real good guy to play for.”
Asked what the one thing that may fall in FSU’s favor, he said: “Burt Reynolds. (Laughs) You know, the dorms and facilities for their athletes. They’re very nice.”
