Wide receiver/defensive back Brando Tessar (6-1, 185, 4.42) from West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade was sleeper going into the recruiting process, but is beginning to change his status from sleeper to prospect as he has picked up two offers this spring.
"My first offer came from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo as a safety," Tessar said. "My second offer came from Nevada as a slot receiver."
Tessar took in an unofficial visit to Nevada recently.
"Nevada was awesome," Tessar said. "Nevada's facilities were unbelievable.
"The day before I was at Cal's camp," Tessar said. "Cal's campus was older and there was a different feel. I was really impressed by Nevada."
"I went there with Moorpark (high school) quarterback, Brian Blechen and we met, Chris Ault, who is in the college football hall of fame," Tessar said. "He spent the whole day working with Brian and I, one-on-one with their wide receiver coach Scott Baumgartner.
"After we did that, we took a tour of the campus," Tessar said. "It was then that Coach Baumgartner told me that Coach Ault wanted to extend an offer to me and that they feel I would fit in their style of offense.
"I was so in the moment because I was overwhelmed with how nice the campus was," Tessar said. "It crossed my mind to commit, but I want to keep my options open. I have a couple more camps to go to, but Nevada is of my top choices.
The busy Tessar camped with UCLA the day before Cal's camp and he has at least two more camps to attend.
"I had a good camp at UCLA," Tessar said. "They like me on the defensive side of the ball.
"This weekend, I will camp with Arizona and Arizona State," Tessar said. "I'm looking forward to both of them."
As a junior, Tessar had 48 receptions for 720 yards and six touchdowns. He ended up the season with 1,033 all-purpose yards. His performance earned him all-league honors.
For Tessar's career at Chaminade, he has 82 receptions for 1,195 yards and 1,666 all-purpose yards with 12 touchdowns.
The athletic is also a prospect in baseball, but is very much looking forward to playing college football and having that experience.
