Notre Dame recruiting: Irish get commitment from RB Greg Bryant

Running back Greg Bryant has given Notre Dame a verbal commitment for the 2013 class.

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

A Rivals five-star recruit, running back Greg Bryant (Delray Beach, Fla. - American Heritage Boca/Delray), has verbally committed to Notre Dame's 2013 recruiting class as of Sunday, according to SB Nation's One Foot Down.

Bryant, who ESPN and Scout have listed as a four-star recruit, had an official visit over the weekend. He committed shortly after. He was once committed to play at Oklahoma, and eventually chose the Fighting Irish over several other schools, including Alabama, Florida and USC.

Notre Dame fans can catch the 5'1, 196-lb Bryant in the US Army All-American Bowl in January.

As noted by One Foot Down, Bryant could compete for touches immediately. They refer to him as an elite-level back, but note that his playing time will likely depend on his ability to pick up the play book. Bryant's biggest issue from a skillset standpoint is his lack of top-end speed. His 40-yard dash time is 4.48.

This is Brian Kelly's 22nd verbal commitment for the 2013 class.
