Bryce Treggs took his first official visit last weekend and it was a good one, according to the 5-foot-10, 175-pound wide receiver from Bellflower, Calif., (St. John Bosco).
“Arizona State was pretty good,” Treggs said of the Sun Devils’ 43-22 win over USC on Saturday night. “It was a good football atmosphere because they were playing USC and it was a big game. It was the first time Arizona State beat USC in like 11 years. It was a big win.”
Treggs was especially impressed with the atmosphere surrounding Sun Devil Stadium.
“It was crazy,” he said. “ It was loud all night. The student section was going crazy. Afterward I got to hang out with my host and we went to parties and stuff and those were fun also.”
But the trip wasn’t enough to get Treggs to change from the verbal commitment he made over the summer.
“I’m still solid with Cal,” he said.
His next official visit will be to Notre Dame for the USC game on Oct. 22nd and he isn’t sure what he’ll need to see in South Bend to start wavering.
“I don’t know,” he said. “It’ll have to surprise me, that’s all I can say.”
Still, Treggs, who made the trip to Notre Dame for the Irish’s spring game, is definitely looking forward to the visit and will be one of several West Coast prospects on campus that weekend.
“I’m really excited,” he said. “I’ve been there once and had a blast. I’m looking forward to getting out there again.”
Notre Dame West Coast recruiter Mike Denbrock touched base with Treggs before he headed to Arizona State to go over some details of his travel arrangements to South Bend.
“I talked to Denbrock on Saturday morning before I got on my flight,” Treggs said.
Treggs has an impressive offer sheet that includes Notre Dame, Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, Georgia Tech, Northwestern, Oregon State, Stanford, UCLA, Utah and Washington. He is still in the process of setting up his remaining official visits. He said he recently touched base with coaches from Oregon.
“They were at my school this week and they want me to come up and take a visit,” he said of the Duck coaches. “I want to take one to Oregon, obviously Cal, and my last one would probably be either Washington or Arizona.”
The four-star prospect is rated as ESPN’s 22nd-best wide receiver in the country. Treggs was a highly-touted prospect even before strong showings on the summer 7-on-7 circuit, The Opening and the Gridiron Kings boosted his profile even more.
Notre Dame figures to be looking for one more receiver to go with Justin Ferguson, Deontay Greenberry and Chris Brown, who have already offered verbal commitments.
