WR Torry McTyer gets first offer


The Los Angeles Cathedral Phantoms are off to a 5-0 start this season behind a prolific passing attack that has accounted for 1,505 yards and 26 touchdowns. On Sunday, one of those receivers -- senior Torry McTyer -- received his first scholarship offer, as the California Golden Bears made the call.

McTyer said run-game coordinator and associate head coach Ron Gould reached him by telephone.

"He pretty much said that I'm a good athlete and he can see me in the program," McTyer said.

McTyer's relationship with the Golden Bears' coaching staff began this past summer, when he attended a 7-on-7 camp on campus. After a strong offseason and a big start to his senior year -- McTyer has 18 receptions for 378 yards and nine total touchdowns -- the 6-foot-1, 170-pound receiver said he could feel an offer coming.

"I knew it was going to happen eventually," he said. "It was only a matter of time. But it's nice that it happened. I wouldn't have thought when I woke up this morning that it would happen today."

McTyer said that other Pac-12 programs such as Arizona State and Oregon State have expressed interest. But California will get McTyer's full interest this coming weekend, as he will take an unofficial visit to watch the Golden Bears host the UCLA Bruins. McTyer said this will be his first time watching a game at Cal, and he is looking forward to seeing the atmosphere and environment surrounding a game day.
