Keith Bryant was the highest profile recruit ever to visit FAU.


Bryant sent home early

FAU cuts short the official visit from Delray Beach-Atlantic defensive tackle Keith Bryant and defensive end Todney Evans because the Owls didn't think Bryant was taking it seriously.

It's even more unlikely that Delray Beach-Atlantic defensive tackle Keith Bryant will be signing with Florida Atlantic now that the Owls have cut short Bryant and teammate Todney Evans' visit.

Evans said they were summoned to breakfast and told their official visit was over.

"They said they didn't think they we were serious about the visit," Evans said.

Bryant made waves in recruiting circles by announcing he would take his final visit to FAU. Rated by most to be among the Top 20 defensive tackles in the nation, Bryant was the highest profile recruit ever to visit FAU.

He'd previously committed to Miami and has visited Florida State and South Carolina.

Evans, however, doesn't have nearly as many offers and expressed interest in playing for FAU. The Owls never offered him a scholarship.

"They told us to check out by noon," said Evans, who wasn't sure what the duo did to give the opinion that they weren't taking the visit seriously.

A source familiar with Bryant's recruitment said Bryant was late to events during the weekend and obviously didn't intend to commit to FAU so the Owls cut him loose early.

Evans still hopes to receive a scholarship offer from FAU.

"I'm going to call them tomorrow," Evans said.
