Johnny O’Bryant is a 6’9” 230lb forward from the class of 2011. According to both Scout.com and Rivals.com O’Bryant is a 5-star prospect. O’Bryant has been collecting scholarship offers for some time and currently has offers from over 10 schools. Recently however, one major basketball power got involved with O’Bryant – the Duke Blue Devils.
Here is an excerpt from MemphisRoar.com on O’Bryant’s Duke offer.
“A couple of weeks ago Duke offered me,” said O’Bryant, a preseason Dandy Dozen member (via The Clarion Ledger) and two-time all-state performer. “They called my high school coach to try to get in touch with me. Then they got up with me and said they were offering me. I am still, though, just taking everything in and sorting through everything.”
Interestingly enough, Duke recently offered another Mississippi native – 6′9″ 260-pound center Tyler Adams from Brandon, MS. On 730 Fox Sports radio Monday night, Adams stated on-air that he speaks with O’Bryant about their recruitments have have discussed playing together.
“We talk about it a good bit,” said O’Bryant. “[We] talk sometimes about going to the same school. That would be pretty neat for us to all stick together and compete for a national championship on the same team in college.”
