Thomas Bryant chooses Indiana over Syracuse — Cuse Clicks

The Thomas Bryant saga is over. The 6-foot-10 McDonald’s All-American from Huntington (W.V.) Prep committed to Indiana on ESPN, choosing the Hoosiers over Syracuse, Kentucky and Missouri. “I’m very excited,” said Bryant, a native of Rochester, N.Y. “I’ve been thinking about this long and hard. I’ve been talking it over with my mom and coaches. [Huntington Prep] coach Arkell [Bruce] and everything, just mostly my mom. We just felt like being at Indiana was the best decision for me.”

In an interview with our staff writer Ryan Greco on CHRY 105.5 Halftime, Jamal Murray told Greco that he remains undecided on the idea of reclassifying. “I haven’t decided if I’m going 2015 or 2016,” said Murray. “I really don’t know yet.” With multiple programs offering Murray, Oregon, Syracuse, Michigan, Michigan State and Illinois are perceived to be the frontrunners. But without an official decision on whether he will reclassify, it’s tough to label one program as a true frontrunner.

Back on Jan. 21, Syracuse extended offers to St. Peter’s Prep receivers KJ Gray and Kolton Huber. Both players told NJ.com they were quite excited about the Orangemen putting scholarships on the table. And on Saturday, both players will be on campus for Syracuse’s 2015 Spring Game. Earlier this morning, Huber informed NJ.com that he was on his way to SU, while Gray is also en route.

Michigan State did not sign a tight end in the class of 2015 and only signed one in 2014. For a team that likes to use a lot of two tight end sets that means the position is a top priority for the class of 2016. The staff is currently evaluating prospects from coast to coast and this past weekend they offered 6-foot-4, 220-pound Brendan Scales of Lafayette High School in Missouri.

South Brunswick (Monmouth Junction, N.J.) juniors Phil Campbell and Wendell Allen made their second trip to Syracuse this spring on Saturday. They were among the 17 recruits from New Jersey in attendance and were told by SU wide receivers coach Bobby Acosta to focus on the defensive side of the ball. Campbell, who was the Vikings’ second-leading rusher after 2015 Syracuse running back signee Dontae Strickland, is being looked at for safety. Allen, who also plays slotback, is being recruited primarily as a cornerback.
