Maryland surprised Tennessee junior
I was walking down the hallway today and one of my coaches pulled me aside and told me he had a surprise for me," said Jeremiah Bryson. "He showed me the letter and it was a letter from Maryland telling me they were offering a full scholarship to play football." "I couldn't believe it." He had good reason not to believe it or expect news like that from the ACC program. They had not shown any type of interest in Bryson before today. "I had never talked to them, I had not received any type of mail from them, so I was pretty much shocked by the offer. It was so unexpected." The 5-foot-10, 172 pound running back out of Smyrna (TN) does not know a lot about the Terps yet, but he plans to find out more now. "I have seen them on T.V. before and I know they are in the ACC, but that is about it right now," he said. "I am going to get to know more about them now for sure. Maybe I can get up there for a visit and see what it is like. I am definitely interested in them." Maryland is the second school to offer Bryson and the first was North Carolina. He is also hearing from Arkansas, LSU, Oregon, and UCLA. Bryson rushed for 800 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2009.
