Eastern Michigan coach Rob Murphy announced the move this week. Bryant says he wanted to play closer to home after 61 games over two season at Arkansas, where he averaged 3.4 points and 2.7 rebounds. Bryant is from Detroit, about 40 miles from the Ypsilanti campus.
The 6-foot-7 forward must sit out the coming season and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Bryant was one of three Arkansas players accused of in an alleged rape two years ago. A special prosecutor decided against filing charges, citing insufficient evidence. An attorney for Bryant said at the time that he voluntarily took and passed a polygraph test and that DNA testing proved the three didn't commit a crime.
