Bryant Adding Offers

Even when he was five years old, Seminole (FL) High School linebacker Serderius Bryant was well built. He always has been solidly put together. Now, he's also turned into a solid college prospect as evidenced by offers from a host of BCS schools including Wake Forest.

"I've been playing football for 13 years, since I was 5," Serderius Bryant told DeaconSports. "I was too big to play when I first started so I moved up to pee-wee playing with the older players. Football is very fun for me and I live for football. I live go to school and go to football."

Although only 5'10, Bryant is a solid 205 pounds with excellent speed and quickness. He has used those attributes for many years while playing older players. "It helped me a lot to play with the older guys," he said. "When I played my 1st year on pee-wee, I played with [Miami sophomore] Ray Ray [Buchanan] and people like that. My first few years there I wasn't that great but my 3rd year, I was showing well. I wasn't scared to hit people and do the little things."

That carried into his high school career where Bryant has proven to be a ‘player' at Seminole High School. "My high school career has been great," Bryant said. "I'm trying to break the tackling record here. 425 is the record. In three years I'm at 344 so I think I can break it."

Bryant's on-field success has helped him in the recruiting process as well. "High school recruiting is going good. I showed out when coaches came to see Ray Ray. They saw a sophomore on the team that was playing well and they just wanted to keep an eye on him."

"Because of that, recruiting is going great for me," he continued. "I've got 7 offers including one from Wake Forest. I think I'm doing pretty good. So many coaches have come to see me I can't count them. Cincy, Georgia Southern, UCF, Ole Miss, Colorado, and Louisiana Lafayette [have also offered.] A lot of schools told me they would get paperwork back to me once they get my transcript."

Bryant noted that the Demon Deacons are in good shape for his services. "Wake Forest is a pretty good school and would be a good fit," he said. "The linebacker coach came and said he wanted to see and talk to me. He was reminding me of Wake and said he wanted to have me up playing linebacker for him. He likes what he saw at linebacker and although some people are saying safety, he thought I could be a great linebacker. Usually they redshirt players but he said if I can learn the playbook and be on top of my academics, I might could play early there."
