In the fallout of LSU’s 2019 Junior Day weekend, the Tigers got a visit from a group of Texas prospects on Monday, and in the process, a new verbal commitment from four-star defensive end Alec Bryant.
A 6-3, 230-pound prospect out of Pearland, Texas, Bryant is a composite four-star prospect and the ninth-rated weakside defensive end in the class — the 157th-rated player overall. Oklahoma was listed as his leader in the 247 Sports Crystal Ball predictions.
Bryant broke out as a junior with 16 sacks for Shadow Creek High School.
Bryant looks like more of an edge/outside linebacker type in LSU’s defense, and he shows and impressive get-off from his stance. Also plays with really nice pad level, and shows some nice leverage when rushing inside. He will need some technique work, of course. Definitely seems to favor rushing straight up the field.
