San Jose State Looking to Add a Tight End

In what looks like a fortuitous event, the San Jose State football team looks to add a junior college tight end to the 2009 roster. He could start suiting up with the team as early as Monday.

With the possible loss for the season of senior tight end Terrance Williams, the addition of Chris Bryant of Glendale (Calif) Community College to the 2009 San Jose State football roster may appear to be just what the doctor ordered.

The 6-foot-4, 257-pound Bryant has been on campus since Thursday but has yet to participate in practice.

"I'm still waiting for some credits to be sent up," he told Inside Sparta. "I'm expecting all of that to be taken care of by Monday and I can start practicing with the team."

Bryant said the process of becoming a Spartan began just before summer. He didn't play football in 2008 as he worked on improving his academic status. He added that he will have two years of eligibility remaining.
