Wempa Emerging As A JUCO TE To Watch

2018 Tyler TE Bryce Wempa (6-6, 250) is tight end emerging as a hot prospect that four-year coaching staffs are taking note of...


Wempa received an offer from Southern Mississippi about a week ago.


"The other schools I have been talking to are UCFLouisiana-Lafayette and Arkansas State," Wempa told JCFootball.com. "I have been keeping up with UCF a lot and I'm planning to visit Southern Miss this summer."

As a freshman last season for Tyler, Wempa didn't register a catch, but his blocking stood out and he thinks he's been proving this spring that he can do whatever he's called upon to do.

"I'm a physical blocker, but I'd say my speed and routes aren't like most tight ends," Wempa noted. "My highlight doesn't show it as much because we had some struggled at quarterback, but I'd say I'm a lot better with the football in my hands.

"I can play out of the slot or outside as well."

As a prep at Royse City (Tx.) High School, Wempa was heavily recruited by TexasAlabamaOklahoma and Missouri among others, but a low GPA forced him to take the JUCO route.

"I had opportunities to go to other programs, but my brother played here and I just felt like Tyler was the right place for me," Wempa said.

Wempa can leave right away, but he's very likely to return for his sophomore season with the Apaches this fall and he will have three years to play two following the completion of the 2017 football season.
