We have covered Bryce Bramscher a few times not only because he is a small school big talent but also because he has broken through the false assumption that you have to be at a bigger school to land offers. The 6’4″- 2oo lb. TE/H-Back/OLB has landed his first D1 offer from Valpariso in Indiana. With many High Schools “Open” to him transferring he stayed the course.
How many of you transferred schools because you thought it would enhance your chances? How many of you were encouraged to move or asked to move by someone “looking out” for your interests? How many of you parents contemplated it? We did when our boys played so this is no slam- it happens.
For Bryce and his family staying put worked out and the Senior at tiny St Mary High near Medford, Oregon has not regrets.
“Yes I had options and there were several schools that expressed an interest in me moving,” said Bramscher. “But these are my friends and team mates and were together all 4 years so it was never an option. I love our school!”
Last year he had a nice Junior season and this off season hit the camp circuit and made his presence known at several NW Camps where he caught passes from some of the biggest QB recruits in the Region and beat many of the best defensive backs too, How did he rate those experiences overall?
“They were great. The main benefit was I saw what the best athletes looked like and walked away knowing that I was able to compete with any of them. It gave me confidence and I followed up those events with some Summer camps too.”
This season he posted 19 TD’s and over 1,200 yards and that has given coaches recruiting him some solid Senior film to back up his recruiting. At this point he has Valporiso who has given him a package to come play D1-AA football in Indiana which he is really happy about. Carroll College is recruiting him and University of San Diego is in regular discussions with him. He also hears from some Big Sky schools and a host of others.
“I am in basketball right now and have baseball right after that. Having said that I will try and get to Valporiso and keep things moving on recruiting. Football is my college sport of choice and I plan to study Business and or Sports Medicine so that is important to me for sure. At this point I am open but starting to really look through all the options,” he concluded.
This guy also played Safety and outside linebacker- he never came off the field and loved every minute of it!
He likes the Big Sky and truly we think this is a kid schools need to be aware of. He has a very long reach and runs clean routes. He feels he is able to win most of those 1-1 battles, a confident kid that is a winner. Bryce Bramscher is a great football player and has shown he is a able to be a big time talent from a small community and school. Have a look at Bryce Bramscher’s film and keep him in mind coaches if you are looking for a value recruit!
