Deacs in Bryant's Top Two

Sanford (FL) Seminole linebacker Serderius Bryant has his share of doubters but he plans on continuing to prove them wrong all the way through his high school and college playing career.

At just around 5-10 and 210-pounds, Serderius Bryant doesn't have ideal size for a college linebacker. However, each year it seems as though there are at least a few undersized players at that position that prove doubters wrong, and prove that you don't have to be above 6-feet to make plays at linebacker. Some guys just have a knack for finding themselves around the ball and if they can do that and tackle well there will always be a place for them.

So far Wake Forest has looked beyond Bryant's height and they're impressed with the player they have found. Bryant appreciates that attention and has rewarded the Deacons with a spot in his top two.

"Right now I'd say I'm at a top three," he said. "It's a top three overall but I've got two favorites (within) that. Middle Tennessee is number three, but Wake Forest and Ole Miss are numbers one and two. I don't know which one I like more, but Wake and Ole Miss are one and two. I'm gonna try to take official visits up to both of those schools and see how it goes. I've been on unofficial visits and I loved all three of them, so I've got to take official visits."

Bryant didn't stop there. He went on to talk about how much he enjoyed his time at Wake Forest and what he believes the Deacons would be able to do for him.

"Man, I loved Wake Forest," he said. "They made me feel like I was at home. I felt like I could spend four years of my life there. The coaches were great. I loved every coach. The quarterback coach is recruiting my area and me and him (have) a great relationship. Me and coach Russ (have) a great relationship.

"I talked to the linebackers coach and we talked about some things. He said he takes care of his linebackers. If they play well he feeds them. He takes them to his house and he feeds them. The same day we went up there the linebackers were at his house eating dinner. He takes care of them."

Since Bryant plans on taking at least three official visits beginning in the fall he will not be making a decision for at least a couple of months.

As a junior last year for Seminole, Bryant was named third-team all-state in the 6-A ranks, as well as first team All-Central Florida by the Orlando Sentinel.
