Wide receiver Tehvyn Brantley of Durham’s Mt. Zion Christian Academy will have a sit-down with North Carolina head coach Butch Davis Wednesday, according to his father, Leroy Brantley.
“I see him going up there and maybe committing,” Leroy said this afternoon. “But he has to make a decision that’s best for him as a young man.”
You may remember Tehvyn; his dad took him all over the country to various camps and combines in a journey chronicled on this blog.
He had early offers from Buffalo and Central Michigan, then went to North Carolina’s camp in June and was offered a scholarship on the spot. He recently received an offer from Wyoming as well.
There was more interest; he was the most outstanding WR at Tennessee’s camp, and also did well at several west coast schools. But while many universities have expressed interest, no other offers have been forthcoming.
That’s because Brantley is 5-foot-8, and short receivers aren’t in high demand. Watch Brantley, though, and you can see he’s something special, in the mold of the Panthers’ Steve Smith. He simply goes up and gets the ball.
While Leroy doesn’t know if Tehvyn, who is going to the UNC meeting with his mother, Jackie Alston, will commit Wednesday, I believe the Tar Heels will have a steal if he does so.
