Notebook: Oklahoma, Florida State in top four of American Heritage All-American Greg Bryant 

By Matt Porter

Greg Bryant, who previously accepted an invite to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, made it official Tuesday in a ceremony at his school. After he pulled on his All-American jersey, he gave clues as to which jersey he’ll be wearing in college.

Bryant, the No. 2 recruit on the PBGametime Big Board, will play in the annual all-star game at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013 (NBC). The game features 90 of the nation’s top high school football players and is played in an East-West format.

Bryant, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound running back, told the Sun-Sentinel’s Steve Gorten that he will announce his college decision at the game. Bryant told Gorten he is deciding between Auburn, Florida State, Oklahoma and South Carolina.

Bryant, who committed to Oklahoma last spring, backed off in the fall. After American Heritage won the 2011 Class 3A state championship, Bryant stated his desire to play in the SEC. When he backed off his commitment to Oklahoma, he re-stated that wish and said he liked Georgia, Auburn and South Carolina the most.

With Auburn and South Carolina still in the mix, Bryant still sees himself playing in the SEC. Now, it appears Oklahoma is back in the mix. Florida State, which we recently noted had increased its efforts to land Bryant, is apparently a major player as well.

Noteworthy: Bryant’s teammate, senior quarterback Marcus Davis, told The Post he will choose between West Virginia and Wake Forest. That info was first reported by Gorten.

Davis, a 5-10, 175-pound athlete, is being recruited by West Virginia as a wide receiver and by Wake Forest as a defensive back. Davis will visit WVU this weekend with another teammate, senior offensive lineman Roderick Johnson (6-5, 290). Johnson is considering Florida, Florida State, Miami, West Virginia and UCF. He told Gorten Miami is recruiting him hardest at the moment.
