One of the juniors in the country, wide receiver Bryce Treggs is a playmaker. At Saint John Bosco, Treggs has been stacked up against the best competition week after week and has repeatedly shined, catching 47 balls for 833 yards and 10 touchdowns in just 8 games.
At 5'11 175 pounds Treggs already has the body of a D1 slot receiver and is built in the mold of a Desean Jackson. He has already been clocked in the low 4.5's in the 40 yard dash but when watching him on the field you can't help but wonder if he is even faster then that. Breakaway speed isn't Bryce's only elite tool, as the young wide out has surprising strength that helps him get separation from corners and breath taking jumping ability that makes up for his slightly below average height.
Bryce is an elite route runner who is extremely fluid in and out of his breaks and knows how to subtly use his hands to create some space. He rarely drops a ball thanks to his soft hands and in the open field looks more like a big play running back then a wide receiver. Treggs has continued to establish himself as a top 100 player in the class of 2012 and colleges have tried to vie for his services early, as this week Bryce picked up his third Pac 10 offer from UCLA, to go along with offers from Arizona State and Stanford.
Treggs is excited about all of his offers and sees incredible benefits from each school.
"Stanford is a place where if you go there you know you have a backup plan if football doesn't work out," Treggs said about the #2 team in the Pac 10. "It's an incredible school and a great atmosphere up there and Coach Harbaugh has them playing incredible football too, they really have vaunted up the Pac 10 so it is an exciting place to potentially be with great academics and great football," Treggs said.
Treggs is also excited about his Arizona State offer, a school that has recently received a large number of solid Southern California commits as the Sun Devils continue to progress and rebuild under head coach Dennis Erickson.
"Even in their losses, they never get blown out," Treggs said. "And that shows that they are really close, maybe just a few players away from being a top in the Pac 10. I know a lot of really good guys are going there and if I were to go there I would feel confident because me and some of those other guys could help make that difference between tough losses and wins," Treggs said.
Bryce's most recent offer came from the UCLA Bruins and Treggs had a chance to attend this past weekend's game between the Bruins and the Arizona Wildcats. Even though the Bruins lost, Treggs came away excited about the role he could potentially fill with the Bruins.
"I think they need some playmakers on the offensive side and that is what Coach Neuheisal said to me when he offered, that they needed offensive playmakers and I could be that type of guy for them," Treggs said. "So when I look at UCLA and the year they have had I think, I could make some big plays on offense and help that team, because that's what I do," Treggs said.
While those three Pac 10 schools constitute Treggs' biggest offers he is receiving heavy interest from other Pac 10 schools and programs all across the country including Cal, Oregon and Florida. Bryce is just a junior and when his highlight tape starts circulating more and when he is able to show off his incredible athletic skills at camps this summer he should see tons of offers pour in.
For now, Treggs said is he just focused on the rest of the season with Saint John Bosco and improving in his senior season. But when he does make his college choice fans across the country better take note, Bryce Treggs is the type of guy that could swing games for his school the second he steps foot on campus.
