Saddleback WR Hauls In First Offer

A JUCO wideout who will likely become one of the more popular prospects at his position this summer and fall is Saddleback's Justin Wyatt (6-2, 194). The talented receiver recently hauled in his first offer and he's got a handful of other schools looking his way...



"I talked to a Colorado coach and he said they were offering me and that he wanted to see me this week at practice," Wyatt told JCFootball.com. "I have also been talking with Utah, Utah State and Georgia State."

As a prep at Collins Hill High School in Suwanee, Georgia, Wyatt was a highly sought-after prospect with offers from UCF, Cincinnati and Bowling Green among others. He chose to sign with Ohio, but after two years with the Bobcats, he decided he needed a change.

"I broke my ankle my freshman year right before the season started, so I redshirted and then, my second year (2014), I played in five games," Wyatt noted. "I just wasn't happy there, so I started to look around and Saddleback is the place I decided to be.

"I had heard a lot about them and I did some research. They sling the ball like no other. It's a wide receivers' dream school. They've lead California in pass yards and total offense for numerous years and I wanted to be a part of that."

This offseason, Wyatt has been working with his Gauchos teammates on his overall game and he said he's ready to show everyone that he can do whatever it takes to be successful.

"For me I think I'm versatile because I can do it all," Wyatt added. "I can play slot and outside, go get the deep ball, go across the middle. Jump balls are my favorite."

Wyatt is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have two years to play two, with the possibility of getting a year back due to his injury, following the 2015 football season.
