It has been an exciting week for fast rising four-star tight end prospect Randall Telfer (6-4, 220, 4.6) from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. Earlier in the week he received an offer from USC and that scholie opportunity was quickly followed by another from cross town rival, UCLA.
"I just received my UCLA offer this afternoon (Thursday march 12th)," Telfer said. "It felt great."
"After I received my USC offer, I felt that it would be just a matter of time before UCLA would offer and I'm excited about it," Telfer said. "I'm very glad both of the local schools have offered. It makes me feel like a player."
"I'm always hearing about the rivalry and what school is better and all that," Telfer said. "I am excited for the opportunity to see who is right as I learn about both programs."
Telfer has taken in recently, junior days at UCLA, USC and Stanford. He was at UCLA this weekend.
"My junior day at UCLA went really well," Telfer said. "They took us through their hall of fame and showed all the famous athletes who have attended UCLA. We took a tour of the campus and it was beautiful."
"USC was another great junior day," Telfer said. "I had a lot of fun. They have a kinesiology program and I talked to a professor. He told us they help their athletes."
"Stanford was a very long day, but I enjoyed it," Telfer said. "I talked to professor's there and it was very informative."
"I would like to see Oregon and hopefully Cal."
Besides Stanford, UCLA and USC, Telfer has offers from Arizona State, Washington, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
What is Telfer looking for in a college?
"I am looking for a school that is strong in my major of kinesiology or pre-med, so academics will be very important to me," Telfer said. "Athletically, I want to attend a school with a great football program, has a great tradition and an outstanding network."
"Then I will look at the type of offense they run and they use the tight end," Telfer said. "Also I will look into how many tight ends they have on the team and how many they are recruiting."
"I would prefer to make my college decision in a month or two, but I don't have a date in mind."
Telfer earned first-team all-league, first-team all-CIF, and first-team all-Inland Empire as a junior after accounting for 44 receptions for 686 yards and five touchdowns.
Telfer is planning on taking in the NIKE Camp held in Eugene and USC's individual camp. Then he may in a camp at UCLA or Cal.
