The 6-foot-6 rising high school senior is the 36th-best tight end in the Class of 2018, and the No. 921 ranked player in the entire class, according to 247Sports.
Bryant, who attends Mays High School in Atlanta, had 14 Division I offers, including ones from Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Rutgers and Iowa State. Maryland was his second scholarship offer, which the Terps’ extended to the three-star recruit on January 5.
Bryant is Maryland’s sixth commitment in the class of 2018, joining the likes of quarterback Tyler DeSue, and Dematha High School standouts Austin Fontaine and Evan Gregory, among others. The Atlanta native is the only tight end so far in the class.
The Terps currently have six tight ends on the roster, but seniors Derrick Hayward and Garland Owens, and juniors Avery Edwards and Kevin Woodeshick will be gone by the time Bryant gets to College Park. Bryant will compete for playing time with current freshmen Andrew Park and Noah Barnes at the position, along with any other tight ends that D.J. Durkin’s staff brings in.
