Kansas State Beats Mizzou for Tre Bryant Commitment

Kansas State football scored another recruiting victory on Monday when running back Tre Bryant committed to the Wildcats over his home state school of Missouri.

“Kansas State is the pick,” Bryant told Scout.com. “They offered the three things I was in search for with a great vibe between the players and coaches, great academics, and an offensive system that fit my skill set.”

He comes to Manhattan with great speed around the edge and experience running the spread offense.

A 5-10, 198-pound running back from the Christian Brothers Academy in St. Louis, Tre Bryant brings all the potential to emerge as the next dynamic ball-carrier at Kansas State. He comes to Manhattan with great speed around the edge and experience running the spread offense. The Wildcats will likely leave Bryant at the running back position, an easy decision considering his junior season highlight package.

What is most impressive about Tre Bryant is his level head. Few recruits are as focused about the off-the-field implications of their commitment as he. Bryant cited the family atmosphere and relationships at Kansas State as a big reason for his decision. Additionally, the running back credited academic advisers in Manhattan for giving him a solid plan and confidence in discussing degree options.

Bryant opened his recruiting trail with Missouri, Indiana, Northwestern, Syracuse, and Kansas State on the radar. Although he isn’t a native of the state, Missouri was thought of as the favorite to land Bryant due to the proximity of his mother. Wescott Elberts of SB Nation also reported back in May that “[Bryant] also feels like he’s a fit in the spread offense run by the Tigers”.

A three-star recruit according to 247Sports.com, Tre Bryant becomes Kansas State’s the fourth commitment of the current recruiting season. Bryant joins quarterback Skylar Thompson, tight end Nick Lenners, and receivers D.J. Render and Corey Sutton, as the early makeup of the 2016 Wildcats class.
