Demps Eager for Chance

Elk Grove (Calif.) Pleasant Grove athlete Wyatt Demps (6-2, 185), comes from a program that has had quite a few players sign with FBS programs the last few years.

Two years ago, when Demps was a sophomore, he played with the West's top prospect, Arik Armstead, who just finished his freshman year at Oregon.

Now Demps, who can play receiver or safety, is another prospect from Pleasant Grove.

"There are definitely some schools showing interest but no offers yet have come in," said Demps.

Still, a slew of schools are in contact with him.

"I'm hearing a little from Missouri, and I get at least two letters from Oregon every week," said Demps. "UCLA, Wisconsin and Nebraska all have written me too."

Demps said a pair of Pac-12 schools stand out to him.

"My uncle and my grandpa both played basketball at Oregon so I'd love to go there, and I played with Arik when I was a sophomore. I'd love to go to Oregon with all they have going on," said Demps. "And I'd love to play at UCLA. I love the area and the campus and the program is on the way up. But honestly, I'm willing to look at any school. I just want to play as long as I can."

Demps said he's open to either side, but if he had his choice, offense would be where he ended up.

"I love receiver, but I'll play any position," said Demps. "Schools are looking at me more as an athlete but my goal is to play receiver in college."

Demps was at the NLA Elite 7on7 last month and was one of the top surprise performers at the event, playing on both sides.

Academically, Demps has a 3.5 and will take the SAT this spring.

As a junior, Demps had 39 receptions for 620 yards and 12 touchdowns and added 42 tackles, three pass deflections and two interceptions.
