North Cobb HS (Kennesaw, GA) Wide Receiver Drew Tejchman had options. NC State, Purdue, Tulane, Arkansas St. and others were recruiting him hard, but in the end UNLV won it in-part due to him wanting to play in the west coast. Tejchman (pronounced TECH-man) has all the tools to be a very gifted player early on for the Rebels. He has the size (6'0/185), athleticism and breakaway speed to be a threat for the Rebels from day 1. He also has the work ethic to match. He has been a varsity player since his Sophomore year in High School and helped his team go deep into the playoffs the past 2 years.
When we spoke last week, Drew impressed me with his knowledge of football and what he looked for in a school. He has already hit it off with other Rebels recruits and they all speak daily with each other.
Here is Drew Tejchman, a Rebel commitment and member of the UNLV 2017 recruiting class
When I came on my official visit I was amazed on everything I saw, because of the city and the facilities. Loved everything about my visit.
I feel I'll fit very well because of my ability to play inside and outside.
I picked UNLV because I thought it was a great fit for me and loved the coaches, also dreamed about playing on the west coast. I feel that I can come and play right away with my size and speed too.
The west coast weather and is something new for me also, always looked like my style of football.
I feel my strengths on the field are my rout running and my hands. I need to work on my quick burst.
The other recruits and I got along well and I did not know them prior to the visit and have never played them.
Really enjoyed my trip, the new facility that is being built really excites me. I feel the coaches have done a great job and also coach Sanchez is a great coach.
The location is a big thing and then all the majors.
The great coaches and I see a lot of bright things happening in the future with coach Sanchez, also it being in the west coast and having a good connection with coach smith.
Tejchman is a German name and the j is silent.
