Bartlett readies for trip to Eugene

Cheyenne (Wyo.) East athlete Tevis Bartlett previews his official visit to Oregon.

Three-star prospect Tevis Bartlett will take his second official visit this weekend to Oregon, where the Ducks will take on rival Washington at Autzen Stadium.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Bartlett has led East High School to a 5-2 record as a quarterback during his senior season, but is being recruited as a linebacker by Oregon and several other programs. In an interview with on Wednesday evening, he said that Oregon defensive coordinator Don Pellum and outside linebackers coach Erik Chinander have continued to monitor his recruitment throughout the fall.

“I get a letter every other week or so,” Bartlett said. “I get a phone call about the same, every other week, so it’s been good."

Bartlett will arrive in Eugene on Friday and is eager to see what awaits him in the lead up to the game on Saturday evening.

“I’m excited to see the game day atmosphere in Eugene,” he said. “I’m excited to meet the players and get a good feel for the team atmosphere, and also just to be around the coaches and the university itself more.”

This will be Bartlett’s second trip to Eugene, but it promises to have more of an impact given that his previous visit lasted half of a day. This time, he hopes to find out more about life as a student-athlete.

“I think that’s one of the big questions that we’re trying to answer,” he said. “(We want) to see if that kind of lifestyle is the kind of lifestyle that I would be comfortable living for the next five years.”

A couple of weeks ago, Missouri became the latest school to offer Bartlett, who claims no leader at this point in the process. Following his Oregon visit he’ll have three available official visits slots left and he indicated that any of the programs who have offered him are in contention for one of them.
