Tehvyn Brantley has watched his stock rise dramatically since he enrolled at Durham (N.C.) Mt. Zion Academy, and he's sitting in a much better position than ever before.
The 5-8, 165-pound receiver is claiming offers from North Carolina, South Carolina and Wyoming, and told Pack Pride that he wants to take officials to those schools, plus NC State, before the end of the recruiting process.
While at one point he may have been open to the idea of making an early decision, with all the new interest he has received he seems content to take his time and see how things play themselves out.
Through four games at Mt. Zion Academy, Brantley and his teammates were 2-2 on the year. They won their fourth contest 44-42 with Brantley accounting for three receiving touchdowns. He has five scores overall on the year, and all have come through the air.
"It's mostly been on big plays," he explained. "They'll throw to me when they need a big play or a big third down -- something like that. They just try to get the ball into my hands so I can make plays."
While Brantley doesn't plan on making a decision any time soon, he's not shy about talking about one school that's at the top of his list.
"(North) Carolina is still number one," he admitted.
The Tar Heels might be number one, but Brantley has already attended a game in Raleigh this year.
"I actually just went to the NC State game when they played South Carolina," he said. "Their crowd was really, really into it. They love their football. There was so much excitement the whole game. They didn't get down on their team at all. I liked to see that."
Brantley hasn't yet set up any official visits, though he will probably get started on that soon.
