Georgia Tech three-star safety Sirad Bryant is coming off a highly productive high school career and has multi-year starter potential.
The 6-foot-8, 184-pound safety out of Crisp County High School was a composite three-star recruit, ranked as such by all three major recruiting services.
Bryant originally committed to the program in August of last year and was the Jackets’s 19th commitment at the time. He committed to Tech over 14 other reported scholarship offers which included Power Five programs such as Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and West Virginia. A quality offer list to say the least.
Bryant will come to Tech after a highly productive high school career at Crisp County, amassing 147 tackles and 13 interceptions. He earned All-State honors for his play as a junior.
Highlights and What He Brings to The Flats:
Overall, Bryant is a phenomenal safety and that is proven by his production at the high school level. When looking at his tape, it’s easy to see how he had that much production. As a safety, he has phenomenal coverage skills whether it’s his play recognition, range, ability to the ball, ability to play receiver, etc. He’s simply very good in coverage and helps erase mistakes by others in coverage. Also, as seen by his career tackle total, Bryant is a strong tackler.
As an athlete, he doesn’t have blow you away athleticism or speed but he’s still is a high quality athlete and has traits that will allow him to be productive at the college level. His 6-foot-1 frame will give him some quality size and length though adding on an additional 20 pounds or so will be big for his development going forward. Additionally, while there are some athleticism traits you can’t teach, there are still plenty of ways that they can be improved and working with the Yellow Jackets strength and conditioning team will certainty help in that category.
His Future on The Flats:
Along with Kaleb Edwards, the Jackets brought in two safeties in this class who should be versatile and have the ability to starters for the Yellow Jackets down the road. Bryant definitely has the potential to be a multi-year starter but a lot of that will come down to if his athleticism will translate well enough to the collegiate level. On paper, I personally think it will though there will certainly be a few limitations. Overall, Bryant is a fantastic pickup for the Yellow Jackets and could be at best as noted above a multi-year, high level starter while his floor is probably around an average rotational piece in the secondary.
