Freshman running back Jeremiah Bryson received his release from Pitt today so he can return home to Smyrna, Tenn., and attend Middle Tennessee State.

Bryson, who gained more than 1,500 yards during his senior year at Smyrna High School, said he wants to help care for his ailing mother.

"She's a single mom, and I want to be close to home and take care of her," he said.
