Nature Coast junior RB Matt Breida began Friday with no Division I scholarship offers. By 2 p.m., he had three

Akron, Toledo and UMass all offered the speedster on Friday, Sharks assistant Rob Kazmier said.

Breida was an all-North Suncoast selection last fall after rushing for 20 touchdowns and more than 1,600 yards. That includes one of the top games in county history, a 355-yard outburst against Central.

The 5-foot-10, 168-pound Breida also played defensive back early in the year before shifting his focus to the offensive backfield.

Breida’s offer came in a phone call from Akron assistant Terrell Buckley, a former Florida State star and NFL defensive back.

UMass also offered Hernando pass rusher Darren Hambrick on Friday.
