Running back prospect Josh Bryant has announced his decommitment from Liberty. Bryant is a 5’10”, 192 pound back from Middletown, Ohio where he attends Middletown High School.
Bryant chose Liberty over offers from Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Eastern Michigan, Georgia State, Kent State, Marshall, Miami (OH), Toledo, and several FCS schools. He is rated a 2-star prospect by 247Sports.
As a sophomore in 2018, Bryant surpassed the 1,000 yard mark and went over 200 rushing yards in a single game on two occasions. In 2019, he rushed for 1,062 yards and 9 touchdowns, while amassing 1,738 all-purpose yards. As a junior, he was named OPSWA Division I Second Team All-Southwest District and First Team All-GMC for a second straight year.
The Flames have two seniors at running back in Joshua Mack and Peytton Pickett, who could elect to come back for 2021 amid the NCAA’s ruling that the 2020 season will not count against eligibility. Liberty does have underclassmen Shedro Louis, Troy Henderson, and Frank Boyd at running back.
I want to thank Liberty university and the football team for blessing me with the offer to play for you guys and I want to thank @CoachHughFreeze and @BruceSJohnson with me all the way but with that being said I am opening my recruitment back up‼️
