UAB Blazers Greg Bryant Jr. shot in Miami

Former Notre Dame football player Greg Bryant Jr. was shot late Friday night. There’s little details at this time about the incident.

Bryant Jr. was one of two people, who were shot on I-95. After playing for Notre Dame, he was set to be a UAB Blazer when their football team returns this year.

“Stallion family please PRAY for our own Greg Bryant Jr.,” the American Heritage Delray Beach Football Twitter account said. “Injured this AM and in critical cond. (condition). Need prayers now #GregBryantJr #StallionStrong”

The Palm Beach Post has reported on the shooting. However, they did not confirm that the former running back was involved.

Here is a piece of their report:

Two men were found shot in a car in the southbound lanes of Interstate-95 Saturday morning, according to West Palm Beach police.

The men, who have not been identified, were found in a car between the Southern Boulevard and Forest Hill Boulevard exits of I-95 around 4:45 am, police said. The pair were taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center with gunshot wound injuries.

According to media reports, the passenger, Maurice Grover, 25, sustained minor injuries.

Bryant Jr. was ruled academically ineligible just before fall camp. He would have been a redshirt soph. and was facing a four-game suspension to start the season because he violated team rules.

He announced in Nov. that he was attending UAB and attending ASA Miami, a community college.

“The UAB Football Family’s prayers are with Greg Bryant and his family this morning,” Bill Clark, head coach, said in a statement. “He was injured in a shooting last night in Miami and is receiving medical care, surrounded by his family. We are working to get more information and to support Greg and his family in this difficult time.”
