Former Clayton State combo guard Bryan Hart has officially move to the Division I level following his commitment to Radford.
“They gave me an opportunity to come to a Division I program,” he said, “And I get a chance to compete, which was big for me.”
Hart played two season at the Division II level with his final numbers being 14.7 points and 4.0 rebounds, while shooting 39-percent from three. He had heard from Wyoming, Missouri State, Utah State, Morehead State, Montana State, Gardner Webb and plenty more coaches throughout the process.
His obvious versatility on offense is what drove coaches towards him initially, and fans should expect that and more once he steps on campus.
“[Fans should expect] someone that’s going to work hard,” Hart explained. “Someone that’s going to compete and be a great teammate.”
Back in May 2020 shortly after entering the portal, Hart said that coaches like his ability to run the pick-and-roll but his boost of energy off the bench was something he hung his hat on, and that might be something Radford will rely on next season.
“A lot of [coaches] like my playmaking and my ability to play off pick-and-rolls. I feel like that’s a very underrated part of my game because I wasn’t doing it much,” he said. “And being a relieve guard…being a combo that is able to handle the ball and relieve the point guard in any situation.”
