Bryant begins Juco career, opens up recruitment


It appears that the Greg Bryant era at Notre Dame is over.

The junior running back, who was declared academically ineligible to play for the Irish this fall, has enrolled at ASA Miami, a junior college with a new football program run by former Irish assistant Ernest Jones. In addition to starting school and beginning practices with the new program, Bryant also acknowledged that he’ll be “opening up my recruitment,” all but signaling the end of his time in South Bend.

Bryant took to Instagram to announce the decision.


The chance of a return to South Bend seemed slim from the moment Bryant decided not to return to Notre Dame and enroll in classes for the fall semester. And while head coach Brian Kelly is and was open to Bryant returning to the program if he wants to get his degree from Notre Dame, Bryant sounds like he’s looking for a better situation on the field.

In his Instagram post, Bryant acknowledged that a fresh start at a new school will hopefully make sure his “next move will be my best move.”
