Cutcliffe Recruiting Maryland ATH

One of Maryland's top running back prospects has popped up on the radar as the Spring has progressed in Durham. TDD spoke to this three star player to get an update on recruiting and his thoughts on the Blue Devils' early efforts.

"Duke has been recruiting me primarily through Coach Zac Roper," said North Bethesda (Md.) Georgetown Prep standout Dominic Bryan. "I have an excellent relationship with him and with Coach Cutcliffe, who I think is a great coach."

At 6-foot-1 and 225 pounds, Bryan played running back for most of last season for Georgetown Prep. In the backfield he recorded 54 carries for 365 yards 365 (6.8 ypc) and four touchdowns. It was good enough to catch the eye of several coaches including Duke, Boston College, Maryland, Virginia, Stanford, Rutgers, Georgia, and Alabama.

"I have several programs contacting me, and I have two early offers from Maryland and Boston College. I'm looking for a school that has a good balance of strong academics and athletics."

In addition to his frame, Bryan also sports 4.5 forty speed and impressive weight room numbers that include a 300 pound bench press max and a squat of 525 pounds. Add that to an impressive academic resume that includes a 3.5 grade point average and it is easy to see why so many programs have come calling. Though the pitches have varied.

"I'm being recruited as a running back by some schools, and as either a defensive end or linebacker by others. Coaches have told me they think my best strengths are intelligence, size, strength, speed, but most of all they like my fundamentals. I know I need to get better in every category, however."

So far the Blue Devil pitch has been one of location and academics according to Bryan, and he's hopeful to get to Durham soon for a visit. It'll probably be during the summer, however, as Bryan is a baseball player for Georgetown as well.
