Bowling Green 2024 ATH Daegon Bryant wasn’t a known commodity prior to attending the Six Star Football Kickoff23 Showcase at Lou Fusz Indoor Training Facility in late December in St. Louis.
But the 6’2, 195-pound prospect, Bryant blew up on the recruiting scene after recording an eye-opening 4.51 laser timed 40-yard dash, 118 inch broad jump and 34.5 inch vertical (finishing among the top performers in each event). He was selected to attend TheFINALS All-America Showcase on Memorial Day weekend in Kansas City and earned the RB MVP.
Bryant is a standout two-way prospect who had 74 carries for 1,097 yards 23 TDs and five receptions for 196 yards and three TDs on offense and 52 solo, 20 assisted, 15 TFLs and eight sacks on defense as a junior.
My experience (at Six Star Football) was really good had some fun and got to compete against a lot of people and meet some new people.

Six Star Football — Tell people who haven’t seen you play about your game, strengths as a player.
DB — I believe my strengths would be never giving up on a play, I’m a hard hitter and I’m fast.
Six Star Football —Tell us about Wyoming. What was it about the program that impressed you and what were some of the main reasons for committing rhere.
DB —They have a great program and they seem to really know what they’re doing . Laramie is a great town and it’s not a huge city which I like and they also are surrounded by lots of nature and things to do outdoors.
Six Star Football — Tell us about your high school squad.
DB — We’re a pretty big run team but we can throw when we want to.
Six Star Football — Anyone in particular that you have looked up to or patterned your game after as a player?
DB — I would say I pattern my game after Ray Lewis.
Six Star Football — What are some things you are focused on this off-season?
I’ve been working on getting faster, bigger, and some footwork.
Six Star Football — Tell us about your offers? What has the recruiting experience been like for you so far to this point?
