Bryce Treggs attended the UCLA-Arizona game this past weekend and the Bruins offered the Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco standout, one of the best 2012 wide receivers in the state of California.
Treggs, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound prospect, now has verbal offers from UCLA, Arizona State and Stanford and many other programs are showing him interest.
This was an especially important offer for two reasons: Coach Rick Neuheisel personally delivered it before the game at a recruiting luncheon and Treggs said it was neat to get an offer from a school that close to home.
"When you go there for a recruiting visit, they have a lunch before and coach Neuheisel came up and offered me the scholarship in person," Treggs said.
"At UCLA, that would be really easy for my family and friends to come see me play and they're sort of in a rebuilding phase so if I go there I could be a big help in that, be a big playmaker for them."
Treggs has proven to be one of California's top receivers this season regardless of class. He has 47 receptions for 825 yards and 10 touchdowns through eight games and there's no telling what Treggs' numbers could be if he played with an elite-level quarterback. He's also a talented cornerback.
Pac-10 schools are taking notice and now three have already offered. Cal, Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oregon and Oregon State are some others showing interest. Treggs said he's still very much open in his recruitment.
"(Neuheisel) said he really liked my highlight tape and he said they really need one of those big playmakers," Treggs said.
"When I got the offer I was really excited because all these people outside of L.A. were offering me but the schools right around the corner hadn't offered yet."
Cal has not offered yet but Treggs' father, Brian, played for the Golden Bears and so there are family connections in Berkeley. Treggs took an unofficial visit for the Cal-UCLA game a few weeks ago and said the coaching staff has been in touch.
"I went up to Cal for the Cal-UCLA game and they didn't offer but I know the staff likes me a lot so they could be close," Treggs said.
