Pitt Football Recruiting: Panthers Lose 2011 Recruit Jeremiah Bryson

Head coach Todd Graham has been reeling in transfers over the past couple of months, reaping the benefits of some coaching changes mostly. However, this weekend Graham was on the other side of the battle and lost one of his 2011 recruits.

Running back Jeremiah Bryson will leave the Panthers' program to head to Middle Tennessee State University. Bryson, from Tennessee, states a desire to be closer to his single mom, who is apparently ill. Obviously, no one should begrudge the kid for making a move for that reason.

Bryson, a three-star recruit, considered Middle Tennessee State the first time around, but ended up selecting Pitt over them and other schools such as Cincinnati, Maryland, North Carolina, and Illinois.

With Pitt's dearth at running back, Bryson could have conceivably earned some playing time this season behind Ray Graham and transfer Zach Brown. As a legitimate D-I prospect, he should step in right away and get on the field for Middle Tennessee State in 2012 when he's eligible to play.
