Treggs talks ASU's Junior Day

Among the approximately 125 prospects that attended Arizona State's Junior Day event, none was more heralded than Bellflower (Calif.) wide receiver Bryce Treggs. The St. John Bosco star has received scholarship offers from coast to coast but already unofficially visited Tempe twice before. Devils Digest caught up with Treggs to talk about the day he spent in Tempe.

"I had a good time hanging out with some of the players I know from back home and talking to the coaching staff," said the 5-11 175 Bryce Treggs. "It was good to get back up there (to Arizona State). This time I got to see more of the campus and the facilities and I got to see the practice facility too.

"I also got to really sit down talk to coach Erickson which was good. He told me how much he wanted me to be a Sun Devil and how I would fit in their program."

As a junior, Treggs posted 56 receptions for 1,133 yards and 12 touchdowns and added 37 tackles and four interceptions as defensive back. In a very deep Western region 2012 wide receiver class Treggs has already been able to stand out in various combines and earned a four-star ranking.

"The Arizona State coaches like my quickness off the line," Treggs said, "and they also like I can play inside and outside receiver. They think I can play early as a freshman and really make an impact. I saw the scrimmage and I like the spread offense and the tempo of it and how hard they compete on every play."

Several Pac-12 schools such as Cal (where his father played), Stanford, UCLA and Washington have already offered the receiver as well as other schools such as Georgia Tech, Nebraska and Notre Dame.

"In the last few weeks I checked out Cal, Stanford and UCLA," Treggs commented, "I plan to also go to Washington and Notre Dame. I'm not planning on going to any college camps, just passing tournaments and 7 on 7's.

"I am enjoying the recruiting process because this is something that you can only go through once. It's a great opportunity to see different parts of the country and get to know the schools that are recruiting you."

It goes without saying that Treggs has a long list of suitors to sort through and that a decision from his end is likely to not come before January after he has taken a few official visits. Nonetheless, early in the process the Sun Devils have been able to distinguish themselves from the pack.

"Arizona State was the first school to offer me and they will always be at the top of my list," Treggs confessed. "I really like how all the players there are like family. They will compete hard on the field but after practice they are all brothers and have respect for their teammates."
