Go west young man, go west was the siren call to those who live the eastern part of the 150 years ago. That siren call still rings true for one North Carolina prospect, as once the speedy Tehvyn Brantley (5-9, 170, 4.38) from Durham (N.C.) Mt. Zion Christian Academy is once again on the west coast showing off his skills this past weekend, but is just the beginning of an almost month camp trek that he has ahead of him.
Brantley has very busy schedule in June starting today (June 1st) when he will camp with Arizona State. On Tuesday (June 2nd), he will be at Tennessee's camp. By the end of this week, Brantley will be back in Los Angeles to camp with UCLA on June 6th and the very next day will camp with Cal.
"I will be going to 23 camps in 28 days," Brantley said. "The reason I am going to all these camps is to earn scholarships.
"This is strictly business," Brantley said. "I have to get an early start on my college choices because I am a December graduate."
There is one team closer to Brantley's home that has gotten his attention and he definitely has interest in that school, but playing in the west is still very much on his mind.
"I would like to play out west, but I am getting a lot of attention from Florida," Brantley said. "I will be attending their Friday Night Lights Camp.
Because Brantley will be a December graduate, he plans on making his college choice known before his senior season.
Brantley is an outstanding athlete who plays quarterback on the high school level, but is being recruited as a wide receiver.
As a junior, Brantley earned all-state, all-conference and was his team's MVP after accounting for 28 touchdowns. He had 18 touchdown passes and 10 rushing touchdowns.
Brantley currently holds two offers from Buffalo and Central Michigan.
