#81 WR Ryeshene Bronson
Junior, 6'3", 200 lbs.
That's Pronounced... RYE-sheen.
2015 Stats: Bronson played in all 13 games. He was an excellent blocker on outside runs and screens, and caught 17 passes for 258 yards. He hauled in a 42-yard touchdown pass from Quinton Flowers on the most exciting, unexpected play of the season for USF.
He also made, in my opinion, the most crucial play of the season, but we'll talk about that in a Stampede Bonus.
Position on Depth Chart: Ryeshene is behind A.J. Legree as the second Z wide receiver after spring practice.
How He Came To USF: Bronson played at Dunbar High School in Fort Myers, where he caught a total of 60 passes for 954 yards and 10 TDs. (Click here if you haven't seen his high school reel.) It was quite a coup for USF to land him in their 2014 recruiting class. He had offers from, among others, Florida, Florida State, Miami, and Auburn, plus interest from just about every brand-name school out there.
Recruiting Rankings: Bronson was a three-star recruit at Rivals, 247, and Scout. ESPN gave him four stars and rated him in their ESPN300.
Projected Playing Time: I'm actually kind of surprised he isn't listed as a starter. Bronson will undoubtedly get plenty of playing time. He's too valuable as a blocker to leave on the sidelines, and he provides a horizontal and vertical passing threat.
And now, your moment of zen.
