When you’re listed at 5-foot-7, 162-pounds, many don’t place major college football prospect next to your name unless your name is Tennel Bryant, out of Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller high school.
Bryant, whose high school coach is former college head coach Mark Elder (Eastern Kentucky), has been making plays for Elder since his sophomore season against a schedule many would consider one of the hardest each year.
As a sophomore, Bryant had 33 receptions for 481 yards and three touchdowns on a team that struggled. His junior season saw the Crusaders return to their winning ways, going 11-4, with Bryant being a big reason pulling down 71 balls for 896 yards and 15 touchdowns. As a senior, Moeller is considered the team to beat in Division One in Ohio. Bryant is playing his role with 29 receptions for 437 yards and five touchdowns in six games.
Colleges have noticed as all three military academies, along with Austin Peay, Central Michigan, Massachusetts, and Toledo, have offered scholarships.
However, Bryant will visit South Carolina as the Gamecocks host Charlotte this weekend. Head coach Shane Beamer is showing hard interest, and Bryant is excited to learn more about the SEC program.
DBHuddle spoke with Bryant following the Crusaders’ 47-14 win over GCL rival La Salle about his game, the program’s rise since Coach Elder took over, and recruiting in this one-on-one interview presented by First Star Logistics.
