The Notre Dame Fighting Irish were disappointed to hear that Greg Bryant was academically ineligible for the 2015 season, especially as he was expected to be used as a key player for the team.
Following that news, Bryant made it clear that he would return to the Irish next season and come back with a vengeance.
Bryant doesn’t appear interested in living up to his word anymore, as he posted on Instagram that he is opening up his recruitment for any team to talk to him and feels like he’s doing high school recruitment again.

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly cannot be happy with the way that Bryant has handled this entire situation.
During the 2014 season with Notre Dame, Bryant recorded 57 carries for 303 yards and three touchdowns. He may not have had huge statistics last year, but his athleticism and speed were obvious.
There are going to be quite a few teams coming in and throwing offers on the table for him. Bryant was originally a four-star running back when he came out of high school, but now teams view him as a running back who was carving out a role for himself with the Fighting Irish.
That type of name recognition will get him quite a bit of interest in and of itself.
It will be interesting to see where Bryant ends up when everything is said and done, but this is certainly disappointing news for Notre Dame.
