Bryce Treggs had a busy weekend attending the Cal-UCLA game in Berkeley and then heading over to Palo Alto for the Stanford-USC matchup. It was hectic but also valuable for the 2012 wide receiver from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco.
Both places left a good impression on Treggs, a 5-foot-10 prospect who already has verbal offers from Arizona State and Stanford and will almost definitely pick up more before his junior season is finished.
"Cal was real nice," Treggs said. "I liked the pre-game speech coach (Jeff) Tedford gave. It got the players really motivated. He was telling them about the tradition of the game because it's a big rivalry. The players went out there and played their hearts out.

"It was the same at Stanford. Coach (Jim) Harbaugh's love for the game is phenomenal. Before and after the game he was fired up."
The Golden Bears could have a distinct advantage in Treggs' recruitment though because his father, Brian, played in Berkeley and Treggs said that plays a "big influence" in his decision-making process.
To follow his father's footsteps would be a big deal so it's definitely something to consider moving forward.
"I would love to go to the same school my father went to," Treggs said.
"Coming in as a freshman, people would know about me and it might be a little easier to get playing time. It's great. I'm thankful to have a dad who could play at a high level of football."
Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon State and UCLA are some of the other programs involved with Treggs, who said Notre Dame has recently been in contact and he has serious interest in the Irish.
"Lately I've found interest in Notre Dame," he said. "I like their history and their style of play. I like the way they use Michael Floyd. I've been contacted by them."
But Treggs doesn't plan to make a commitment for a while. He wants to play out his junior year, go through next summer and then make a decision before his senior season starts.
"I'm not looking to commit anytime soon," Treggs said.
