Greg Bryant: Highlights, Scouting Report for 4-Star Recruit

Full RideB/R VideoJanuary 3, 2013

With his size, quickness and elusiveness, Greg Bryant could develop into one of the best running backs to come out of the 2013 recruiting class.

Here's a look at the prized recruit from Delray Beach.

What jumps out at you right away about Greg Bryant is that he has the compact size at 5'11", 196 pounds to be a bruiser and break through tackles, but he's actually done the most damage with his quickness and elusiveness.

Beyond Bryant's measurables, however, he has the footwork, cut-back agility, vision and patience to put it all together. He clearly understands the game, and it's evident in how he carries the pigskin.

While the impressive running back isn't a guy who is going to knock defenders back with regularity, he does have the strength to push forward and gain positive yardage when stopped at the line of scrimmage. 

He's also an above-average blocker, and he can catch balls out of the backfield.

But if you're looking for a player who is going to regularly rip off long runs, you may be looking at the wrong guy. While Bryant has the quickness to burst through holes and gain yardage quickly, he doesn't appear to have the top-end speed to be a downfield threat in college.

On the other hand, that won't matter as much if he's churning out first downs and continually moving the chains.

Overall, you have a player who could make an immediate impact at the next level and become one of the group's best running backs.
