Bryant a fan in the stands

The Michigan State coaching staff had an opportunity to host Christian Bryant, one of the top uncommitted defensive backs in the Class of 2010 this past weekend, and the Spartans left a strong impression on the four-star cornerback from Glenville High in Cleveland, Ohio.

"The weekend was good, like I liked the overall impressions of everything; the coaching staff, the facilities, the player relationships, the player-coaches relationships, and I liked their preparation before the game," said Bryant, who is ranked the No. 10 corner and No. 117 prospect overall in the Class of 2010 by Rivals.com.

"My freshman host was a guy named Dana Dixon and the junior host's name was Colin Neely. They just told me it was a good program, and they haven't really won any (big) games yet, but they're coming from the bottom to the top real fast, and soon. And they said they would love for me to be a part of the program and that uprising."

Bryant (5-10, 173) saw some flashes of the Spartans' rise up the Big Ten ladder Saturday night, as they went punch for punch with the undefeated Iowa Hawkeyes.

"I would say that whole game I was rooting for Michigan State because it was my official visit and I didn't want to see the people I was visiting go down. So that was really a heartbreaker for me, too, when they lost," Bryant said. "I mean, it didn't really affect my decision or my overall outlook on the school just because they lost. It was a real close game. They both deserved to win, and it was just a good game."

"I was probably one of the most intense fans that they had," Bryant added.
