Former Longhorns FB Jamison Berryhill has signed a free agent contract with the Baltimore Ravens it was announced on Friday.
Berryhill was awarded a scholarship prior to his junior season after starting as a walk-on at UT and was named a game captain for contests against Iowa State, Kansas and Texas Tech.
“Jamison Berryhill was one of the best leaders on our team," said head coach Mack Brown. "He was the outstanding point-getter for our special teams and was also an outstanding fullback. So I fully expect him to be playing on an NFL team next fall."
Berryhill played in 34 career games at fullback and on special teams where he had 16 special teams tackles and one fumble recovery for his career. He played in all 13 games in 2011 as a key special teams performer and fullback, posting seven special teams tackles and earned one of UT's Frank Denius Most Valuable Special Teams Player Awards.
Berryhill appeared in all 12 games on special teams and recorded eight tackles (seven solo) in 2010. He appeared in nine games in 2009 when he carried the ball nine times for 34 yards and recorded one special-teams tackle. He was a two-time all-state and three-time academic all-state selection as a prepster. Berryhill was a five-time member of UT's Athletics Director's Honor Roll and a first team Academic All-Big 12 selection in 2011 and a two-time second-team Academic All-Big 12 performer.
