.Open field speed that makes a difference, that's the best way to describe running back Jeremiah Bryson from Smyrna High School. Bryson, who holds offers from Maryland and North Carolina, will look to have a big spring in order to pick up some steam in terms of recruiting. He has very good size, great speed, and great athleticism. The 2010 season could prove to make the recruiting process very busy for Bryson as a part of the 2011 class.*
5-foot-8, 178-pound Smyrna (TN.) running back Jeremiah Bryson recently picked up his fourth offer and more could be on the way. "North Carolina, Maryland, Illinois, and now Memphis have all offered. I just got the offer from Memphis yesterday. I'm also talking with Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and Virginia. Oregon and Georgia are sending me mail."
Picking up the early offer from Illinois caught Bryson's attention, as did his first conversation with new Illinois running backs coach DeAndre Smith. "I've been talking to Coach Smith from Illinois. I was very impressed with him. He's real cool, and it was nice to hear from him. He was excited to hear from me too. I've already decided that Illinois is going to be one of the schools I take an official visit to next fall. I'm also going to try to get up there either this spring or summer to check things out."
Up to six offers now. Is Tennessee showing any interest?
I think we are looking more at Gibson than Bryson. I also think our top RB targets are Crowell, Hill,and Green. We may wanna see if we strike out with the big time RBs before we take a fallback guy like we did last year.
We have good RB depth. Might as well see if we can land the very best imo.
