2020 Dutchtown (GA) wing Cam Bryant thought he had his recruitment figured out when he decided to commit to East Tennessee State but after consulting with family, he decided it wasn’t the best fit for his future.
“I really thought that I was rushing it,” Bryant said. “I wasn’t so sure so I decommitted when I spoke to my family.”
The 6’7 wing that stared for the AOT Running Rebels (GA) on the AAU circuit, averaged 5.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.2 assist per game on the Nike EYBL circuit in limited minutes.
“My recruitment was really all over the place,” he said. “I was talking to Kent State and Georgia the most.”
Since his decommitment from the Buccaneers, Bryant has been thinking about all options. He did mention football as a choice and said that Georgia Tech, North Carolina State and Nebraska have all reached out to talk about him possibly playing wide receiver for their program in the future.
In basketball, Nebraska and TCU reached out to inquire, but he’s not ready to jump right back into the thick of recruiting. He’s ready to just relax and watch it all play out at his pace.
“I’m really going to relax and chill,” he said. “I’m playing it slow this time.”
Bryant is a guy that coaches like because of his versatility. He said, at 6-7, he can play all five positions but his desire is to prove that he can play in the backcourt alongside a point guard or on the wing.
In the offseason, his shot really started to come along nicely and his handle has gotten a lot better. In the near future, once more coaches see him play, they’ll start to enjoy his improved game just as much as his high school coaches do.
“I’m really defensive minded,” he said of his game. “I can play all five positions and I have a high motor.”
Right now he’s set his recruitment on cruise control and will focus solely on improving his game. At this particular time, ETSU is no longer an option for him and he’s looking elsewhere after the season concludes. His plan is to let his recruitment play out and then decide in the spring.
I can’t think of a better idea for a 6-7 forward that is versatile and can play multiple positions.
