The Great Adventure: West Coast Part II

Tehvyn Brantley’s Great Recruiting Adventure has continued this week with a second trip to the West Coast. And while no more offers have come since North Carolina’s last weekend, it’s been an interesting week.

It started at Oregon State, where the Beavers said they needed one last transcript from Brantley’s Durham Mt. Zion Academy before they could offer.

Then it continued at Southern Cal’s huge camp on Wednesday and Thursday, and once again, Brantley, a 5-foot-8 wide receiver who is often overlooked because of his height, made a splash.

Here's what wrote about him after the first day: “We also liked Tehvyn Brantley, a smaller receiver with nice body control and hands. Brantley received an offer earlier this week from his home-state North Carolina Tar Heels.”

Brantley said the Trojans’ wide receivers coach talked to him at length and was enthusiastic, but said that they have already offered a bunch of WRs and need to see how that shakes out. “He told me to be patient,” Brantley said.

He’s patient, but staying busy, spending the weekend competing in the B2G Elite Camp in Thousand Oaks, Cal.
