Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage four-star running back Greg Bryant is hitting the road this weekend to take an unofficial visit. It will take him more than a thousand miles from his front doorstep.
"I am going to Oklahoma on Friday," Bryant said.
The Rivals100 prospect explained what he hopes to learn about the Sooners during his time in Norman.

"I basically just want to go see how everything is," Bryant said. "I just want to ask (Coach Bob Stoops) about how he coaches and see how he coaches. I just want to see if I can play for them. I am just going to watch the spring practices and see if that is a place I can fit in at."
The 5-foot-11, 200-pound back is looking forward to sitting down with Stoops and his staff.
"I will probably ask him about how things are run there and about what I would have to do in order to get on the field early," Bryant said. "I am just going to really ask him to find out how everything is around there."
The success that Oklahoma has had at the running back position over the past decade is part of the reason why they are receiving a visit from the talented Sunshine State prospect.
"Adrian Peterson and DeMarco Murray - how they run the ball and how they stood out there, that stands out to me," Bryant said. "I am looking at what schools do with their running backs and if they put them into the NFL."
With more than two dozen offers, Bryant talked about where things stand with a list of favorites.
"I am still looking at leaving the state," Bryant said. "I haven't really narrowed it down but the schools that are standing out are USC, Notre Dame, South Carolina, and Oklahoma."
Bryant mentioned that he is interested in visiting Notre Dame and South Carolina. He said those visits will likely be during the summer.
At this time, Bryant is not working with a specific timeline for making a decision.
As a junior, Bryant rushed for 2,180 yards and 25 touchdowns on 224 carries. He also had nine receptions for 272 yards and two touchdowns.
