Brantley likely a Tar Heel soon, waiting on transcript

Wide receiver Tehvyn Brantley of Durham Mt. Zion, the No.25 member of The Observer’s N.C. Top 25 Prospects list, may soon be a Tar Heel.

“It’s about 90 percent that he’ll commit to North Carolina,” his dad Leroy said over the weekend. “They’re just waiting on his transcript. He would like to graduate early and be able to enroll in January.”

Although Leroy said his son loves North Carolina, there is also the possibility of a South Carolina offer coming this week. The only other schools that have officially offered have been Wyoming and Central Michigan. Buffalo offered early but later withdrew that scholarship.

Brantley played in Charlotte Friday night against the AFC Rangers, and caught several passes even though he was triple-teamed defensively,” his father said. Tehvyn also returned an interception 50 yards in the 22-13 Mt. Zion victory.

Brantley has had a busy summer, attending more than 20 camps and combines. He had particularly successful workouts at Tennessee, Auburn and Oregon, and offers from those schools or others could still be in the offing.

His remarkable receiving talents are sometimes overshadowed by his 5-foot-8 height, but Brantley has excellent hands, quickness and leaping ability.
