In what may come as a surprise, Homestead (Fla.) wide receiver Alphonso Bryant says that two programs currently are recruiting him the hardest and one of them isn't the local program that has long been considered a contender.
"I'm hearing from Florida State and Arizona State and those are really the only two schools that are calling," he said. "I haven't really been hearing from Miami that much."
Bryant, that nation's No. 68 overall prospect and No. 7 wide receiver prospect, took an official visit to Arizona State the weekend of Oct. 20 with teammates Maurice Harris and Joseph Nicholas and plans to set up an official visit to Tallahassee in the near future.
"I've been talking to coach Kevin Steele about setting up a visit," Bryant said. "The weekend I visited Arizona State was the last Thursday game my team had during the season, so I may set one in December or possibly January, whatever works best."
Bryant played a key role on defense in his Homestead's 7-0 victory against South Dade last week, sacking the opposing quarterback and causing a fumble that was returned for his team's only touchdown. His previous game against Coral Reef, Bryant caught seven passes for 106 yards and a touchdown.
