There seems to have been a concerted effort from the URI staff to add depth at linebacker in this recruiting class. With four LBs in tow, it’s safe to say mission accomplished. Here’s more on Lorenzo Bryant.
Hometown: Pennington, NJ
High School: Hopewell Valley High School
Weight: 215 lbs
At just 5’11”, Bryant is a little undersized for a linebacker. But don’t let it fool you – the book on him is that he can hit hard. Lorenzo also played running back at Hopewell Valley, and he set a variety of school records in the process. Could he potentially be a dual threat for Rhody? Either way, he figures to be a solid special teams contributor at the very least. And talk about the perfect guy for a fake punt or field goal…
