High School Football Star

High school football star Marquise Bryant -- a running back who had committed to the University of South Florida -- was sentenced to 215 days in jail after pulling a gun on a cop ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

As we previously reported, 18-year-old Bryant got into a fist fight with a police officer who had confronted him in a parking lot ... and was eventually taken down by a police dog. 

Now, we've learned Bryant struck a plea deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to plead no contest to carrying a concealed weapon and violently resisting an officer -- and in exchange he was sentenced to 215 days in jail.

He was also ordered to complete 100 hours of community service and got 2 years probation. 

As far as USF goes, we reached out to the school -- and a rep told us the school does not recruit convicted felons.

I'm sure he is shocked as can be that he didn't get the standard jock discount. I can hear him now -- "Don't you know who I am????? I'm a football player, dammit!!"

What a shame. He had a good chance for an education and playing football and chose thug life instead.
