Kansas Football Player No. 2 — CB Cobee Bryant
Cobee Bryant has been the Jayhawks’ best corner for two straight years. The soon-to-be senior is a big-play machine, with his two most notable being the game-sealing pick-6 against West Virginia last year and his forced fumble scoop-and-score when Kansas beat BYU earlier this year.
Opposing quarterbacks rarely look Cobee’s way when KU is on defense. He had three interceptions, five passes defended, and 30 tackles during the regular season. Bryant is also a weapon in run defense and can surprise teams by getting into the back backfield.
The concern with him being a Jayhawk next year isn’t whether he’ll enter the draft — more so if he will enter the transfer portal. He is from Alabama and has been rightfully getting looks from SEC programs. One would have to imagine that saying no to a coach like Nick Saban is pretty difficult.
Hopefully, the coaches can convince Bryant to finish college football as a Jayhawk. He and Mello Dotson could bolster KU’s secondary next year, which is losing star safety Kenny Logan Jr.
