In his junior year at the Delray Beach school in 2011, Bryant helped the American Heritage Stallions clinch the state title with 243 yards and three touchdowns on a season-high 38 carries. That year, he ran for 2,180 yards and 35 touchdowns.
But at Notre Dame, Bryant struggled.
Early in 2015, he was found with small amounts of marijuana and ordered to pretrial diversion by a Palm Beach County judge, court records show. His coach, Brian Kelly, suspended him that year because he did not “meet expectations” and he was ruled academically ineligible, according to ESPN.
Bryant transferred to ASA Miami, a junior college in South Florida, soon after.
Last November, though, he signed with the University of Alabama-Birmingham.
“I’ve had a ton of people ask me why UAB,” Bryant told Bleacher Report. “Once I went on a visit and met them in person, I knew I was safe. I knew I was in a safe environment. They’re basically giving me a second chance.”
He was looking forward to it. In a recent tweet, Bryant wrote, “Accomplished way too much to stop here. Got so much more to accomplish.”
