Fort Myers (Fla.) Dunbar wideout Ryeshene Bronson thought he was done with the recruiting process last June when he committed to Florida, but he went back to square one after a mutual separation with the Gators.
Now, Bronson is focused on several other SEC programs and will likely end up out-of-state. The Rivals250 prospect named a top five of Alabama, LSU, Mississippi State, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
All five schools will likely get official visits. He has already been to Alabama, LSU, and Mississippi State this summer.
How did those trips go?
"They went well. Alabama had the best facilities. That's what happens when you win championships, you get the best of the best," replied Bronson. "LSU has good, but I went to get back to experience the game day atmosphere. I liked Mississippi State too. Alabama and Mississippi are standing out the most at the moment."
One school not in his top five, but is keeping close tabs on him is Arkansas. Bronson said he has a great relationship with his recruiting coach.
"Randy Shannon is a great guy. I can talk to him about anything," noted Bronson. "He is like another father and tells it like it is."
The in-state programs are working to keep him home. He said Florida State and Miami "have me by the ankles and don't want me to leave."
Last season, he posted 342 yards and five touchdowns playing in a run-first offense. This fall, he wants to record 1,500 yards and 15 touchdowns. He plans to study his favorite NFL receiverJulio Jones to reach his goals.
He will take all five visits and then make a decision on Signing Day.
