Reading, Pa. linebacker James Bryant has been a hard man to track down of late. However, he's set his final decision date and will choose amongst four teams next week.
"I'm going to announce my decision on Feb. 4 at around 4:30PM EST," said the 6-foot-3, 240-pounder. "It's between Miami, Florida, Ohio State and Pitt. I know where I'm going, but I'm not telling anyone yet."
And what of the rumors that Bryant and RB Andrew Johnson are a package deal?
"That sounds like a lot of high school talk," said Bryant. "I'm not picking a school based on anyone else. Not my friends, not my brother (at Pitt) -- not anyone. I'm going where I feel comfortable. I've met people and players from every school, but I need to do what I have to do for me."
Bryant, the No. 6 inside linebacker in the country as ranked by Rivals.com, visited Pitt and Miami in December and Florida and Ohio State in January. Does he look at current depth charts?
"Nope," he said. "I'll play wherever I go. I don't lack in confidence."
