Bryan Bresee still has three more years of high school football left to play, but he has already become one of the country’s most coveted defensive line prospects and Michigan State became one of the latest to offer the 6-foot-4, 228 pound defensive end our of Demascus high school in Maryland.
While he holds offers from several other Division 1 schools, including Louisville, Penn State, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Purdue and Maryland. Bresee said that he was still excited to receive the offer from the Spartans and said that he feels he could be a fit in East Lansing judging by Michigan State’s style of play.
Spartan Nation caught up with him to discuss his offer from MSU and to get his thoughts on the Spartans. “I was very excited getting an offer from Michigan State,” he said.
“Just watching some of their game films and how the defensive line plays and watching over some practices online and watching how the coaches coach. It’s just really cool.”
With the offer from the Spartans in hand, Bresee said that he anticipates taking a visit to East Lansing this summer.
Being able to receive a number of high-level offers before the end of his freshman year has been a dream come true for Bresee, who has been playing football since he was a toddler.
“I’ve been playing football since I was four so this has always been the goal, to have offers to play in college and to be playing football for hopefully awhile.”
Bresee has already visited Penn State and said that he was impressed with what Happy Valley had to offer when he was on campus for its spring game.
“I was up at Penn State for the spring game last Saturday,” he said. “That was a pretty cool atmosphere they’re building up right now.”
Another school that could be of interest for the freshman defensive lineman is a team in his home state, Maryland and second year head coach D.J. Durkin, but said that it’s still early in his recruiting process and is weighing all of his options as he prepares for his sophomore season.
“Wherever I build a good relationship with coaches, it doesn’t really matter where I go,” he said. “As long as I feel comfortable there and feel comfortable with the coaching staff.”
As he prepares for his sophomore season this fall, Bresee said that while he feels he utilizes his speed and hands well, he believes he needs to continue getting stronger as his high school career progresses.
“What I’ve been doing well and what I’ve been doing most of my life is just using my speed and my hands and my quickness off the ball to try and get back to the quarterback,” he said. “But I’ve gotten a lot stronger since the beginning of this year, so that’s what I need to work on but I’ve been working on it pretty hard.”
