So Cal athlete has a Navy offer

Torrance Brumfield plays at Crespi Carmelite High School in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. While Crespi players like Marvell Tell, D.J. Beavers, and Valmoe Sekona have been gobbling up D-1 offers, Brumfield, a 5-foot-8, 165-pound all-purpose back, has been patiently waiting for his to come. It finally came for Brumfield the first week of June while on the phone with the U.S. Navy.

"It will be two weeks on Tuesday since I received my first offer from Navy," Brumfield told "The coach he called me and said they wanted to offer at running back. He said they thought I was a perfect fit in their offense and would like me to come.

"I'm actually very excited about the offer. It's my first offer, which is one thing, but I also like the military academies very much. I had been talking with Air Force earlier so going to a military academy is something I'm interested in pursuing. I've never been out there [to Annapolis] but I've seen pictures of the campus and researched it a little and it looks nice. I've been talking to my parents about visiting but nothing is set up yet."

After becoming a starter as a sophomore, Brumfield had what he calls his "breakout season" in 2013 as a junior. He carried the ball 59 times for 389 yards and four touchdowns and caught 18 passes for 189 yards and three touchdowns at slot receiver. Brumfield also handled the kick return duties and alternated at both cornerback and safety.

"I'm more explosive this year, more shifty," Brumfield said on his off-season improvements. "I've been working a lot of my defensive game hoping to see where that takes me.

"With recruiting I'm pretty much open to everything right now. I know I don't currently have many options to choose from but I would like to go to a good academic institution. Academics are very important to me. I'm not hearing from a lot of colleges other than Navy. Cal Poly would be the school I'm hearing the most from right now."

This summer Brumfield has been competing in 7-on-7 tournaments with his club, Team D1. They were most recently at The Pylon Elite tournament in Las Vegas. Top Stories
