Sun Belt offer comes in for Berry

L.A. Pierce S Cody Berry (6-1, 220) got some good news this week when an offer rolled in from a Sun Belt school. JCFootball.com spoke to the hard-hitting safety and he gave us the story...

"Florida International offered," an excited Berry told JCFootball.com. "That's my first, but I hope more and more come in.

"Either way, I have school paid for which is a really big thing for me."

In addition to his offer from FIU, Berry is also getting interest from Syracuse and New Mexico State.

"I play the strong safety spot for us, but I play more like a free safety," Berry admitted with a bit of a chuckle. "I'm more of a ballhawk. I like to make plays on the ball and read the ball in the air a little more.

"I played receiver in high school and that's why I think I have pretty good ball skills, so it's been a little bit of an adjustment for me playing safety.

"I can come up and hit you and make tackles in the open field, but if I have my choice, it's going up and getting the ball and getting it back for my offense."

Berry started five games for the Brahmas last season as a freshman, but said he expects to start alongside his teammate and friend Gerald Bowman this fall.

"We make a good combination," Berry noted.

Berry was a full-qualifier out of high school, so he can leave at any time. However, he expects to play for the Brahmas this fall and then will sign with a school in December.

Wherever he ends up, Berry will have three years to play two the moment he steps on campus.
